To describe the results obtained in three women with breech presentations (In-Utero Constraint) who experienced a turning of the fetus using the Activator Adjusting Instrument (AAI) in conjunction with the Webster’s Protocol.
Three women presented to the author’s office specifically for reduction of In Utero Constraint and were found to have subluxations consistent with the Webster analysis and protocol. Interventions and
Webster’s Technique was administered with the sacral component completed using the Activator adjusting instrument. Each fetus successfully turned within 4 visits. Of the three, two went on to have normal vaginal deliveries while one developed other complications during delivery and required an emergency C-section.
The Activator Adjusting Instrument was used successfully in these cases to reduce the posterior sacral subluxation component of the Webster In-Utero Constraint Technique.
