Looking for a quick fix for your neck pain? A report in US News and World Report on January 2, 2012 detailed mounting evidence for the benefit of manual physical therapy for neck treatment. The report summarizes a study in the Annals of Internal Medicine that shows that manual physical therapy of the neck resulted in greater pain relief than home exercise or medications alone. Manual physical therapy with home exercise was significantly more effective than medication alone or medication and home exercise.
What does this mean for you? When you have neck pain, immediately ask your physician for a referral for physical therapy for neck treatment.
