Table 3 Study outcomes

From: General Movements in preterm infants undergoing craniosacral therapy: a randomised controlled pilot-trial

  Intervention Group (IG) Control Group (CG) sign.
PRIMARY OUTCOME    
  GMA 1 N, 11 PR; 4 N, 9 PR; Fisher’s exact Test
 before the 1st session P > 0.05
  Global GMA 2 N, 9 PR, 1 CS; 5 N, 7 PR, 1 CS; Fisher’s exact Test
 after the last session Assessment P > 0.05
SECONDARY OUTCOME    
  GMOS 23 (21-31) 32 (28-38) P* = 0.085
 before the 1st session
  Median
(Interquartile Range)
  GMOS 19 (13.5-33.3) 20 (12,5-38.5) P* = 0.722
 after the last session
  Median (Interquartile Range)
  1. P* values from exploratory post hoc analyses followed linear mixed model with a fixed effect for session, time point (before vs. after session) and intervention (IG vs. CG)
  2. N normal General Movements
  3. PR poor repertoire General Movements
  4. CS cramped-synchronized General Movements
