Chiropractic Care Improves Those With Chronic Neck Pain

Researchers studied the results of chiropractic care in patients suffering from chronic cervical pain. Patients were either assigned to a control group or a chiropractic treatment group. There was no difference between the treatment patients and the control subjects at the beginning with regard to age, sex, subjective pain intensity, range of motion, and head repositioning accuracy. At the 5-week follow-up, the chiropractic treatment patients showed significant reductions in pain and improvement of all head repositioning accuracy aspects measured whereas the control subjects did not show any reduction in pain and improvement in only one head repositioning accuracy aspect.
