October 04, 2023

DesignA qualitative case study method allowed for an exploration of emergent themes in Australian women experiencing pregnancy-related back pain seeking chiropractic care. Chiropractors who responded were provided advertising material to assist the recruitment of pregnant women currently receiving chiropractic care for pregnancy-related back pain. Two independent researchers (MG and CM) initially used inductive coding to reveal common codes and subcodes in the first respondent data. The researcher (MG) used careful self-reflection in this research, aiming to set aside personal views and reactions and listening from the perspective of a researcher. As a researcher conducting the interviews, MG is also an experienced chiropractic practitioner in treating women with pregnancy-related back pain.
