(1) A recent committee analysis of the latest significant clinical practice guidelines based on the best scientific evidence available to manage neck pain in adults including neck pain with headache or radicular symptoms via chiropractic related that chiropractic manipulation and multimodal care are the “best practice recommendations.” (2) 82% of the older adults visited another healthcare provider in addition to chiropractic to manage neck pain. The chiropractors utilized manipulation of the thoracic spine, neck massage, and adjustment that gave rise to help for dizziness, neck pain, headache and migraine (though migraine takes more visits).

Non-specific neck pain patients find success with exercise as part of their treatment plan. Such patients were supervised in 12 exercise sessions 3 times a week with either traditional exercises vs traditional exercises in addition to sensorimotor training. Pain, intensity, muscle endurance and disability improved in both. The combined group significantly improved in joint position sense and other parameters like endurance, dynamic balance and walking speed. (4) Adding to the daily walking step count over a 6-month period decreased neck pain occurrence in high risk office workers who sit and work at computers day in and day out. It didn’t reduce pain intensity or disability, but it did reduce the start of neck pain. (5) Fewer episodes of Richmond neck pain is a great goal!
