  Title Treating infants for suboptimal breastfeeding, is there a difference between chiropractic care versus multidisciplinary care: A pragmatic randomized comparison trial protocol
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2019 Jun;18(1):1552-1556
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Suboptimal breastfeeding is a problematic concern of mothers of newborns in all societies, with huge economic and sociological ramifications. All professionals support breastfeeding, but some professions have set up special clinics to assist these families. Both chiropractors individually providing care and chiropractors within multi-disciplinary clinics have shown some benefit.

Methods: Randomize mothers and babies who consent to participate to two different treatment arms: (1) chiropractic manual therapy along with advice and (2) chiropractic manual therapy along with midwifery care and routine advice. Maternal report will provide the outcomes at the infant’s ages of 6, 12 and 24 weeks.

Discussion: The purpose of this trial is to investigate the actual difference in effectiveness of chiropractic care alone versus a multidisciplinary approach. As such, the results should be helpful to determine what resources should be reserved for this population. The purpose of the proposed publication is to receive recommendations from other professionals to strengthen the protocol.
