Many people in Portland know that chiropractic is the perfect way to treat many aches and pains, and now researchers from the UK offer some proof.
The six researchers on the team that studied this concluded this by examining 25 different publications on different types of manual therapy techniques compared to standard medical treatment.
The standard medical treatment consisted of a visit to the general practitioner (GP) which may or may not have included advice on exercise, stabilization of the spine, pain management and the recommendation to remain active.
In the 25 different publications on reducing pain with different therapies, 11 of them were ones that used a clinical trial format and included economic evaluations.
Of all these treatments, chiropractic adjustments were the least costly and more effective in cases of neck pain.
