Mild to moderate musculoskeletal injuries (MSK) are common at birth, but frequently missed. Although these injuries are common, their association with quality of life conditions like sleeping, feeding or excessive crying may not always be understood in professional practice. However, birth injuries are implicated in infant complaints. For example, a difficult birth has the highest association with infant colic (now known as excessive crying) than any other factor. Further, birth injury is implicated in suboptimal breastfeeding. Early discontinuation is a trend if the mothers experience problems, discomfort or pain with feeding.  

  • In this study 66% of the infants had postural problems.
  • Neck hyperextension was present in 38%.
  • The inability to rotate their head equally side to side was present in 54%.
  • In total, 24% of the infants did not have the ability to sleep or lie comfortably supine.
  • Suboptimal breastfeeding was reported by 25% of parents, and
  • 12% of the mothers reported pain during feeding.
  • TMJ imbalance was identified in 19%.

Patient Expectations of Benefit from Common Interventions for Low Back Pain and Effects on Outcome
Written by Editor

The findings of this secondary analysis indicate that patients seeking intervention for LBP expect active interventions and manual therapy to significantly help improve their pain more than interventions like traction, rest, surgery, or medication. Additionally, in patients who meet the clinical prediction rule for good prognosis when managed with thrust techniques, treating with thrust techniques is more important than matching treatment to patient expectation.
