Healing a painful neck

Manual therapy has been quite popular in recent years. But this therapy has been recognized and mastered since decades. The best way to cure that pain in your neck may be a treatment known as manual therapy. Researchers felt that this form of therapy is comparatively better to exercise therapy or treatment// with pain medications counseling and education.

Neck pain is a common problem, affecting 10 percent to 15 percent of the general population. The condition strikes most often around age 55, and women experience it more often than men. Although doctors can sometimes pinpoint the cause of the pain, most of the time there is no clear diagnosis. Many physicians try to treat the condition with pain relievers but may also refer patients to physical therapists or manual therapists for exercise therapy or manual treatment. The latter consists of hands-on techniques such as mobilization or manipulation of the neck.

In this study, doctors assigned 190 patients to receive either 40 minutes of various forms of manual therapy once per week, physical therapy consisting of 35 minutes of exercise twice per week, or regular care by a general practitioner consisting of pain relievers, counseling, and education.

After five weeks, patients were evaluated for pain status. About 68 percent of those receiving manual therapy reported being "entirely recovered" or "much improved," compared to around 60 percent of the physical therapy group and 40 percent of the regular care group.

An editorial accompanying the study suggests the need for additional studies to clarify these results. The author writes, "If better results are seen in this study then indeed due to effects specific to manual therapy, further studies should be done to determine which of the eclectic collection of manual techniques used contributed to a successful outcome.
