chiropractic care

After following 272 neck pain patients for 12 weeks, those who used either a chiropractor or exercise were more than twice as likely to be pain free compared to those who took medication.  Specifically:

  • 32 percent who received chiropractic care became pain free
  • 30 percent of those who exercised became pain free
  • 13 percent of those treated with medication became pain free

Study funded by the National Institutes of Health, and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
