CONTEXT Episodic tension-type headache is common and is often treated using manual therapies. Few data exist for the efficacy of these interventions. OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of spinal manipulation therapy on adults with episodic tension-type headache. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial lasting 19 weeks. SETTING Outpatient facility of a(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether there is a short-term effect of spinal manipulation in the treatment of infantile colic. DESIGN A randomized controlled trial. SETTING A private chiropractic practice and the National Health Service's health visitor nurses in the suburb Ballerup (Copenhagen, Denmark). SUBJECTS Infants seen by the health visitor nurses,(More)
PURPOSE To study whether the isolated intervention of high-speed, low-amplitude spinal manipulation in the cervical spine has any effect on cervicogenic headache. DESIGN Prospective randomized controlled trial with a blinded observer. SETTING Ambulatory outpatient facility in an independent research institution. PARTICIPANTS Fifty-three subjects(More)
BACKGROUND Non-invasive physical treatments are often used to treat common types of chronic/recurrent headache. OBJECTIVES To quantify and compare the magnitude of short- and long-term effects of non-invasive physical treatments for chronic/recurrent headaches. SEARCH STRATEGY We searched the following databases from their inception to November 2002:(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of alum formulated glutamic acid decarboxylase GAD65 (GAD-alum) treatment of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes after 4 years of follow-up. Seventy children and adolescents aged 10–18 years with recent onset type 1 diabetes participated in a phase II, double-blind, randomised(More)
PURPOSE To study the intra- and interexaminer reliability of measuring active and passive cervical range of motion (ROM). STUDY DESIGN Observer-blinded, randomized repeated measures of active or passive cervical ROM by two different examiners. SETTING Institute of Medical Biology (Center of Biomechanic) at Odense University. PARTICIPANTS Forty(More)
BACKGROUND It has generally been assumed that spinal manipulation has the biomechanical effect of increasing spinal range of motion. Past research has shown that there are likely no lasting changes to passive range of motion, and it is unclear whether there is an increase in active range of motion after manipulation. OBJECTIVE To study changes in active(More)
PURPOSE To study whether a 3-wk series of spinal manipulation has any lasting effect on passive cervical range of motion. DESIGN Randomized, controlled trial with a blind observer. SETTING Ambulatory outpatient facility in an independent National Health Service funded chiropractic research institution. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-nine headache sufferers who,(More)
A prospective, uncontrolled study of 316 infants suffering from infantile colic and selected according to well-defined criteria shows a satisfactory result of spinal manipulative therapy in 94% of the cases. The median age of the infants was 5.7 wk at the beginning of the treatment. The results were evaluated by analysis of a diary continuously kept by the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine how precisely asymptomatic subjects can reproduce a neutral zero position of the head. STUDY DESIGN Repeated measures of the active cervical neutral zero position. SETTING Institute of Medical Biology (Center of Biomechanics) at Odense University. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-eight asymptomatic students from the University of Odense,(More)
