Chiropractic from Head to Toe: NECK PAIN

Posted By On 10 May 2012


HOT OFF THE PRESS – Recent news results in the same conclusions as the old news: Chiropractic is the most effective tool for neck pain!

According to a recent study,published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in 2012, Chiropractic is still head and shoulders above medical options when it comes to the treatment of neck pain.  In this study, researchers randomly allocated 272 patients with acute or sub-acute neck pain to one of three groups: Chiropractic care, medical care (prescriptions) or home exercises with advice.  Treatments were administered as needed, for up to a maximum of 12 weeks.

Chiropractic results were obtained in an average of only 6 patients visits over the 12 week period. Treatments included Chiropractic adjustments. Medical treatments included prescriptions for symptoms, which usually comprised of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories, and/or Acetominophen. Muscle-relaxants or narcotics were also occasionally prescribed when the first options were ineffective.

Chiropractic adjustments can often immediately reduce the painful pressure and irritation of joints, nerves and surrounding soft tissue caused by vertebral subluxations.  To prolong the benefits of Chiropractic care, stretching and exercising is a logical choice – as it can help to maintain a better state of relaxation in the nervous system, plus augment the strength and flexibility of the spine, which can aid in preventing painful misalignments and imbalances of the neck.

Regular Chiropractic care, plus an ongoing regimen of stretches and exercises (at a reasonable frequency and duration), is your best bet for a healthy, pain-free neck!
