The Effectiveness of Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain

As more research is conducted and reported in publications such as the Annals of Internal Medicine, we learn that spinal manipulation by a chiropractor is effective at reducing neck pain, even more effective on a short or long term basis than medication. Chiropractors may also recommend specific exercises to help maintain proper alignment.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics indicates that an integrated approach to health care, which includes chiropractic, results in a 51.8 percent reduction in pharmaceutical costs and 43 percent fewer hospital admissions.
