In this clinical trial, we aim to evaluate the efficacy of chiropractic care in addressing common childhood health concerns, specifically focusing on colic, ear infections, and sleep disturbances. By conducting a rigorous investigation, we seek to determine the potential benefits of okc chiropractor interventions for improving health outcomes in children.

Study Design:

  1. Participant Selection:

Participants will include children aged 0 to 12 years presenting with colic, ear infections, or sleep disturbances.

Informed consent will be obtained from parents or legal guardians prior to participation.

  1. Randomized Controlled Trial:

Participants will be randomly assigned to either a chiropractic care group or a control group.

The chiropractic care group will receive regular chiropractic adjustments tailored to their specific health concerns.

The control group will receive standard care or placebo interventions.

  1. Outcome Measures:

Primary outcomes will include changes in symptom severity, frequency, and duration assessed through validated measures and parental reports.

Secondary outcomes will include improvements in quality of life, sleep patterns, and overall well-being.
