A study to describe the prevalence and wellness outcomes of chiropractic care of nonmusculoskeletal complaints amongst paediatric patients is proposed. Particular attention will be paid to describing the diagnostic criteria, management protocols and outcomes of chiropractic care of patients with irritable baby syndrome and enuresis.
In addition to providing insight into the potential scope for chiropractic care of non-musculoskeletal conditions in infancy and childhood, it is anticipated the study will provide the chiropractic profession with a benchmark for the care of irritable babies whose symptoms are unrelated to organic dysfunction or pathology and of children with enuresis.
