Abstract/Notes

The purpose of this study was to provide a narrative review of the literature of studies describing the management of disorders of the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract using ‘chiropractic therapy’ broadly defined here as spinal manipulation therapy, mobilizations, soft tissue therapy, modalities and stretches. Search limiters include access to full text studies published between 1980 and November 2012 in peer-reviewed journals, English language only involving human subjects. Twenty-one articles were found that met our inclusion criteria. Retrievable articles varied from case reports to clinical trials to review articles of management options. The majority of articles chronicling patient experiences under chiropractic care reported they demonstrated mild to moderate improvements in presenting symptoms. No adverse side effects were reported. This suggests chiropractic care can be considered as an adjunctive therapy for patients with various GI conditions providing there are no co-morbidities.

L’objectif de cette étude était d’offrir un examen narratif des documents d’études décrivant la gestion de troubles du tractus gastro-intestinal (GI) à l’aide d’un traitement chiropratique ici au sens large, comme la manipulation vertébrale, les mobilisations, le traitement des tissus mous, les modalités et les étirements. Les limites de la recherche comprennent l’accès aux textes d’étude complets entre 1980 et novembre 2012 dans les journaux révisés par des pairs en anglais concernant des sujets humains. Vingt et un articles correspondant à nos critères d’inclusion ont été trouvés. Les articles consultables vont des exposés de cas et essais cliniques aux articles de revues sur les options de gestion. La majorité des articles rapportant des expériences de patients de soins chiropratiques indiquent qu’ils ont connu une amélioration légère à moyenne des symptômes présentés. Aucune réaction indésirable n’a été signalée, ce qui laisse entendre qu’on peut considérer les soins chiropratiques comme un traitement auxiliaire pour plusieurs maladies gastro-intestinales en absence de comorbidité.
