Neck Pain Education Not Enough
Neck pain and associated disorders (NAD) is something that most people experience in their lives. Those that have been in traffic accidents may also experience whiplash-associated disorders (WAD). For many years, the best course of care was “patient education” that included oral and written information on neck pain and suggested exercises.
A recent study found that “patient education alone cannot be expected to yield large benefits in clinical effectiveness compared with other conservative interventions for patients with WAD or NAD.” If you or a loved one has severe or chronic next pain, it may be a sign of a more serious ailment. See your doctor of chiropractic and get it checked out.
