008- Adjustments, Medication, or Home Exercise for Neck Pain?

This weeks episode looks at a study from the Annals of Internal Medicine which reported the functional outcomes of adjustments/manipulation vs medication vs home exercise for neck pain. I love this study because it is a randomized trial, it provides follow up to 52 weeks, AND it focuses on function.  I also touch on how you can use this article to position your practice locally.

THE RESEARCHERS FOUND-

“Spinal Manipulative Therapy seemed more effective than medication according to various measures of neck pain and function.”

“For pain, Spinal Manipulative Therapy had a statistically significant advantage over medication after 8, 12, 26, and 52 weeks.”

“For participants with acute and subacute neck pain, Spinal Manipulative Therapy was more effective than medication in both the short and long term.”
