New Guidelines For The Management Of Neck Pain And Associated Disorders

Clinical guidelines for the management of neck pain and associated disorders were recently released by the Canadian Research chair in Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation. While the guidelines are not specific to chiropractic, the evidence-based chiropractor will do well to review the guidelines provided and implement them into practice.
