studied the results of chiropractic care in patients suffering from
chronic cervical pain. Patients were either assigned to a control group
or a chiropractic treatment group. There was no difference between the
treatment patients and the control subjects at the beginning with
regard to age, sex, subjective pain intensity, range of motion, and
head repositioning accuracy. At the
5-week follow-up, the chiropractic treatment patients showed
significant reductions in pain and improvement of all head
repositioning accuracy aspects measured whereas the control subjects
did not show any reduction in pain and improvement in only one head
repositioning accuracy aspect.
