Many people wonder how the effectiveness of the common forms of treatment for neck and back pain are assessed.  Here is a look at three studies that compared these three popular forms of care for the chronic spinal pain to determine the short-term and more importantly, the LONG-TERM benefits of chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, like Advil).

The first published study included a group of 77 patients complaining of chronic spinal pain (neck, mid-back, or low-back pain). These patients were separated into one of three treatment groups and received NSAIDs, acupuncture, or chiropractic manipulation. Patients received care for four weeks with outcome measures (questionnaires) used to assess changes in pain and disability. After a 30-day time frame, only patients who received chiropractic manipulation reached a level of statistically significant improvement, supporting that chiropractic care offered the best short-term benefits for those with chronic back/neck pain.
