Chiropractic and Infantile Colic
After enjoying John’s posting on the Canadian BCA/Singh case, I feel it’s time to pour some gas on the conversation, to heat things up a bit.
First, you can review the articles under consideration at the Chiropractic and Infantile Colic page.
Then, read Anthony Rosner, PhD’s delightful article “Fables or Foibles: Inherent Problems With RCTs“, as he points up the issues of testing “manual medicine” by RTC.
Finally, you can review previous “failures” in developing a truly inert sham adjustment.
I don’t envy researchers who must overcome these obstacles, but in the mean time, there’s no shame in relying on Case Studies and retrospective treatment reviews to help ground us in reality while we design our treatment plan. Parents in these studies all reported improvements in their children, and that’s what really counts.
