How Best to Treat Neck Pain

    Neck pain can arise as a chronic problem or from an injury such as a car accident.  A study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiologic Therapeutics examined the effectiveness of manipulation by a chiropractor versus mobilization by a therapist for neck pain and decreased range of motion.

     Seventy patients with neck pain participated in this study.  Some received mobilization by a therapist and others received a manipulation by a chiropractor.  The investigators concluded that a single manipulation by a chiropractor was more effective in reducing neck pain and increasing range of motion than receiving mobilization by a therapist.
