Chiropractic and Chronic Neck Pain

The Chiro.Org Blog


In study after study, Chiropractic demonstrates superior results in the relief of chronic neck pain compared to acupuncture or medical management.

In one recent study chiropractic scored the highest relief rating (7.33 out of 10), scoring higher than the relief provided by either nerve blocks (6.75) or opioid analgesics (6.37).

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been and remains my favorite hobby.

    Everyone knows that it feels better after visiting a chiropractor, but does it really have effective long term results? I wasn’t always sure about cracking your knuckles, but it’s it harmful to your joints?

    Well, the Chronic Neck Pain page contains study after study that suggests that it does. Did you review them?

    In particular, a recent study found that subjects with chronic neck pain not due to whiplash and without arm pain and headaches show clinically important improvements from a course of spinal manipulation or mobilization at 6, 12, and up to 104 weeks posttreatment. Does 106 weeks sound long-term enough?
