Resolution of Breech Presentation Confirmed by Ultrasound & Successful Vaginal Birth Following Webster Technique in a Pregnant Female
The purpose of this case study is to discuss the positive health outcomes and resolution of breech presentation in a pregnant female undergoing chiropractic care utilizing Webster Technique.
Clinical Features: A 28-year-old first time pregnant mother presented to the chiropractor at 33 weeks pregnant with breech presentation and hip pain.
Intervention and Outcomes: Over the course of one month the patient was managed utilizing Webster Technique to determine sacral subluxations. After 7 visits, her hip pain decreased and the fetus was found to be in the vertex position which was confirmed by ultrasound. The patient continued chiropractic care until the successful vaginal delivery of the baby.
Conclusions: This case discusses the result of the Webster Technique and chiropractic adjustments to relieve hip pain and sacral alignment. The patient was able to have a successful vaginal birth with no reported complications.
If you or anyone you know are pregnant and suffering from hip pain and/or a breech positioned baby, speak to your chiropractor about the possibility of utilizing chiropractic adjustments to alleviate pain and realign baby’s position for an optimum birth experience. Dr. Gartzke is experienced with the Webster Technique and would be happy to discuss how this method of manipulation could be of help to you.
