Chiropractic Adjustments/Manipulation Effective For Neck Pain

Not that you didnít already know about the incredible effects of chiropractic care, but yet another study has been published showing the significant benefits of chiropractic care in a group of individuals suffering from neck pain. In this new study, researchers studied the immediate effects of a chiropractic cervical (neck) adjustment on neck pain and active cervical range of motion. Seventy patients (25 male and 45 female) aged 20 to 55 years with mechanical neck pain were involved with the study. Researchers concluded that with just a single chiropractic adjustment (often referred to as chiropractic manipulation), the majority of patients experienced an immediate decrease in neck pain as well as immediate increase in neck motion as compared with a control group.
