A new study looking in the effectiveness of spine manipulation in treating back pain has warned that such a practice comes with a risk of stroke due to the damage caused to the neck arteries.
The study was conducted by researchers at Brunel University in London who analyzed data from a Cochrane review of randomized trials of neck manipulation or mobilization and found that any benefit acquired from such a treatment would be on a short term basis.
Writing in the report, published in the British Medical Journal, the researchers said, "The potential for catastrophic events and the clear absence of unique benefit lead to the inevitable conclusion that manipulation of the cervical spine should be abandoned as part of conservative care for neck pain."
