Neck Pain Commentaries: Part 3
Today we will review a trial that Kaiser’s reviewers obviously ignored so that they could deny benefits for cervical adjusting.
First off, this article should have been very easy for their reviewers to find. Look at the title:
This study was a prospective, multicenter, observational cohort study. Patients with neck pain of any duration, who fulfilled the inclusion criteria, were recruited in a practice-based study. Data were collected on the patients and from the chiropractors at baseline, the first 3 visits, and at 3 and 12 months.
Clinical outcome measures included
(2) neck disability,
(3) treatment satisfaction,
(4) global assessment, and
(5) adverse events.
