Those following our Spot the Mistake posts (here, and here) will notice someone has claimed we’ve gone “…on a chiropractic witch hunt”. As it happens, I disagree. Those who haven’t been following along, this post is an overview of the evidence for or against manipulative therapies (which includes chiropractic) in neck pain, as covered by this particular article from spine. It’s framed as a response to a specific commentors post here.
Let’s give Nick alot of credit for walking into potentially hostile territory though. Let’s give him even more credit for defending his ideas with a citation. He cited the article mentioned in the title, “Treatment of Neck Pain: Noninvasive Interventions, Results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000–2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders.” Full citation at the bottom of the page.
