A new study reveals the power of the chiropractic adjusment for treating neck pain. Researchers compared a single chiropractic adjustment to mobilization (stretching the neck). The chiropractic adjusment resulted in significantly greater improvements in range of motion (ability to freely move the neck). The adjustment also provided superior pain relief. The importance of chiropractic in the treatment of neck pain cannot be stressed enough. The chiropractic adjustment results in decreased adhesions and fibrosis around the joints, normilization of movement patterns, and "resets" the nerves controlling the neck. The end result is more rapid, more complete healing, and improved function that affects the entire body.
