It has been revealed through several researches that home exercise alongwith spinal manipulation can prove to be more relaxing in the pain in neck than any type of medicines because the manipulation of spine has shown much better results in the neck pain than the persons doing home exercises or getting medicinal treatment.

“We found that there are some viable treatment options for neck pain,” said Gert Bronfort, vice president of research at the Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minn.

“What we don’t really know yet is how to individualize these treatments for each particular patient. All are probably still viable treatment options, but what we don’t know is what each particular patient will need,” Bronfort said. He further added that a combination of treatments may possibly be more helpful in such conditions.

Studies have disclosed the problem of neck pain as a common one as most of the adults experience it at certain time in their lifetime, which may adversely affect the standard of life as well as compel to go for numerous healthcare visits in a year. One of the effective treatments of neck pain can be manipulation of spinal cord which can be executed through osteopaths, physical therapists, chiropractors, and other providers of health care treatments, stated in the studies in this regards.

Researches of Bronfort and colleagues had notified that they had not got a great deal of proofs to prove the effectiveness of either of the treatments, spinal manipulation, home exercise or medication. But manipulation of spinal cord has better results than medication and home exercise in the neck pain.

Bronfort and colleagues have conducted a survey on nearly 300 people in a wide range of age varying from 18 to 65 having neck pain since nearly two weeks, which may be caused by either of the not recognized reasons like a pinched nerve or a trauma. The people undergoing spinal manipulation treatment, for a period of 12 weeks, had shown much better results on their neck pain than medication and home exercise treatments of this problem. 27 percent patients, under survey, receiving spinal manipulation told a 100 percent relief in neck pain than 17 percent getting medicinal treatment and 37 percent of those doing home exercises.

Thus the surveys have revealed that spinal manipulation and home exercises are better treatments than medicinal treatment for neck pain.
