A recent study in the Journal of Internal Medicine demonstrated that chiropractic manipulation was more effective than medication for treatment of neck pain. (1)
This is great news for many people suffer from both chronic and acute neck pain. It is not however earth shattering news. I have been treating neck pain in Rolla MO and St. James MO area now for seventeen years with great result using chiropractic manipulation.
I understand though that many people may have a fear of having their neck adjusted. I too have seen the movies where the bad guy grabs the person and twist his neck and breaks it. This is far from the truth. Cervical spine adjusting is gentle. There is little twisting and more often than not the patient's response is very positive.
If you live in the Rolla MO area and have neck pain. You should give us a call, if you are alittle apprehensive just come by and talk with us. We will discus your case and give options. You will find that it is a pleasant experience. If chiropractic isn't for you we will direct you in a manner that might be more suited for you. Either way its time to stop hurting and doing the things you love.
