Publication Type Meeting Abstract
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Manipulation of the neck is a widely used therapy by chiropractors, osteopaths, manual therapists and other allied healthcare professionals to treat mechanical neck pain. Although cervical manipulation has been demonstrated to be efficacious for non-specific neck pain, this treatment is not without risks. Reports of serious complications are well documented, although they appear to be extremely rare. The general impression among medical personnel is that manipulation is dangerous and that the risks outweigh the benefits. Chiropractors, on the other hand, believe manipulation is safe. What does the evidence say?
