Neck Pain Recurrence Low One Year After Chiropractic Care
Previous research indicates between 60-80% of individuals with neck pain will experience a recurrent episode a year later. In a new study, Swiss researchers followed 642 neck pain patients who received chiropractic treatment and found only 11% experienced another episode of neck pain during the following year. They note patients with a history of neck pain and older individuals were the most at risk for future episodes.
