For Neck Pain, Chiropractic and Exercise Are Better Than Drugs

For Neck Pain, Chiropractic and Exercise Are Better Than Drugs

Check out this recent NY Times article on new research that shows how seeing a chiropractor or engaging in light exercise relieves neck pain more effectively than relying on pain medication. The research showed that “after 12 weeks, the people in the non-medication groups did significantly better than those taking the drugs. About 57 percent of those who met with chiropractors and 48 percent who did the exercises reported at least a 75 percent reduction in pain, compared to 33 percent of the people in the medication group.”  The research also showed that a year later “The people in the medication group kept on using a higher amount of medication more frequently throughout the follow-up period, up to a year” even with limited pain relief.
