BACKGROUND: Many women would like to avoid pharmacological or invasive methods of pain management in labour and this may contribute towards the popularity of complementary methods of pain management. This review examined currently available evidence supporting the use of relaxation therapies for pain management in labour. OBJECTIVES: To examine the effects of relaxation methods for pain management in labour on maternal and perinatal morbidity.

This study examined the influence of hypnosis, autogenic relaxation, and quiet rest on selected affective states and metabolism. The influence of body position (seated vs. supine) on these same outcome measures was also investigated. Anxiety, tension, and overall mood were assessed before and 30 minutes after each treatment, and oxygen uptake was measured continuously.

A study was undertaken to observe any beneficial effect of yogic practices during training period on the young trainees. 54 trainees of 20-25 years age group were divided randomly in two groups i.e. yoga and control group. Yoga group (23 males and 5 females) was administered yogic practices for the first five months of the course while control group (21 males and 5 females) did not perform yogic exercises during this period. From the 6th to 10th month of training both the groups performed the yogic practices.

The effect of intensive dynamic back extensor exercises for patients with chronic low back pain was investigated in a controlled clinical trial in which chronic low back pain patients underwent a 3-month intensive training program with a total of 30 sessions. The 105 patients were divided into 3 groups: a treatment group, an alternative group which underwent 1/5 of the treatment group's exercise program per session, and an alternative group in which treatment consisted of thermotherapy, massage and mild exercise.

Ninety-three preterm infants (M gestational age = 30 wks; M birth weight = 1204 g; M ICU duration = 15 days) were randomly assigned to a massage therapy group or a control group once they were considered medically stable. The treatment group (N = 50) received three daily 15-minute massages for 10 days. The massage therapy infants gained significantly more weight per day (32 vs 29 g) than did the control infants. Treatment and control groups were divided into high and low weight gainers based on the average weight gain for the control group.

OBJECTIVE: To assess the validity and reliability of prone and supine measurements of leg length inequality and to determine the potential use of measurements at the iliac crests and patient demographics as predictors to estimate standing leg length differential. DESIGN: Repeated prone and supine measurements of leg length inequality were made by an experienced chiropractor and compared with iliac crest and femur head measurements made on X-rays of standing patients. Multiple regression analysis was performed. SETTING: Private chiropractic practice.

OBJECTIVE: To determine if lengthening the tibial portion of the sciatic nerve in healthy patients significantly alters F-wave latency. SUBJECTS: Ten volunteer students (6 men and 4 women). SETTING: Chiropractic college clinic. METHODS: F-wave latency was measured bilaterally in the supine position and supine in 40-50 degrees of passive hip flexion. Block randomization determined the test sequence. Supramaximal surface stimulation was delivered over the tibial nerve using transcutaneous electrical stimulation.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possible effect of the supine cervical rotary manipulation and the supine lateral break manipulation in the treatment of mechanical neck pain, according to subjective and objective clinical findings. BACKGROUND: Delivering a supine lateral break manipulation to the ipsilateral side of an inflamed facet joint(s) that exhibits a lateral flexion fixation may result in pain and/or discomfort to the patient.
