The study below shows that chiropractic care is effective in decreasing chronic neck pain over a 5 week course of treatment.  One of the big complaints about my profession is there are no good studies to back up (no pun intended) the efficacy and medical need for chiropractic care.  This is one of the many studies that has been performed to make the public aware of the benefits and medically based treatment of chiropractic care.  If you are suffering from back or neck pain chiropractic care can help and has no side effects, is drug free and is more cost effective than medical care for the same conditions.  Chiropractors spend their entire life dealing with just back and neck pain, it’s what we do and what we love.  Happy New Year!!
