Exercises As Effective As Manipulation For Neck Pain

A recent study has found that spinal manipulation therapy is more effective than medication in both the short and long-term. The most interesting part of the study was that home exercises and advice were as effective as manipulation. It just goes to show that the benefits of self-help should not be underestimated. It would have been interesting to compare a combination of spinal manipulation therapy and home exercises…which in my opinion would have yielded the best results.
