Everyday patients come to my office complaining about problems that plauged them since childhood. That is what lead me into specializing in Pediatrics. Fix them when they are young and they will be much healthier adults. Well as my practice grew, I realized that problem teenagers had problems as toddlers and challenged toddlers had problems as infants and infants with issues such as colic had problems in-utero with being in the wrong position and/or birth trauma from c-sections or interventions such as forceps.
That is why this case study is important to me. Most of the kids I see with problems such as ear infections, colic, reflux and other challenges, started off having a difficult birth. Using the Webster Technique throughout the WHOLE pregnancy will reduce the likelihood that the baby will be malpositioned (breech, transverse) and need interventions at delivery. Then the baby will truly start off life as healthy as possible.
Resolution of Breech Presentation Following Application of Webster Technique: A Case ReportHelya Dashtkian DC Bio & Heather Whittle-Davis DC, FICPA, CCEP Bio Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health – Chiropractic ~ 2011 ~ Issue 2 ~ Pages 40-42
Objective: To discuss the outcome of chiropractic care using the Webster Technique on a pregnant female with breech presentation of fetus.
Clinical Features: A 25 year old female sought chiropractic care at 31 weeks gestation to avoid cesarean section due to breech presentation, which was confirmed by her Ob/Gyn. The patient also had low back pain that was exacerbated by the pregnancy.
Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was evaluated using Webster Technique protocol and was found to have sacro-iliac subluxations, as well as trigger points along the round ligament. Webster Technique was administered a total of two times to address subluxations and trigger points. The fetus shifted from the breech position to transverse after the first visit. After the second visit, the fetus shifted from transverse to vertex. The patient continued to seek chiropractic care due to pregnancy related low back pain.
Conclusions: The patient avoided cesarean section and had an uncomplicated vaginal delivery following administration of the Webster Technique protocol.[Translate]
