Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation for Infant Colic: A Systematic Review of Randomised Clinical Trials

E Ernst. Int J Clin Pract. .

Abstract

Some chiropractors claim that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for infant colic. This systematic review was aimed at evaluating the evidence for this claim. Four databases were searched and three randomised clinical trials met all the inclusion criteria. The totality of this evidence fails to demonstrate the effectiveness of this treatment. It is concluded that the above claim is not based on convincing data from rigorous clinical trials.
