The goal of the study is to prove efficacy of instrumental chiropractic treatment for leg
pain in juvenile athletes.
A randomized placebo controlled clinical trial including juvenile athletes with functional
impairment and pain in thigh, leg or foot is performed.
Hypothesis: Instrumental chiropractic treatment with the "activator instrument "following the
"activator methods" diagnostic evaluation should lead to significant improvement of
complaints and functional impairment compared to the control group treated by a deactivated
instrument following a sham evaluation protocol.
