Abstract

Background and Objectives: Neck pain can be severely disabling and costly, it is a common problem in the general population with point prevalence ranging between 10% and 15%. The aim of this single cohort study was to investigate if osteopathic management of neck pain would reduce patients' perceived pain. Conclusion: Both outcome measures demonstrated a significant reduction in the perceived quality and intensity of neck pain with osteopathic management. This pilot study suggests that osteopathic treatment is effective for the management of neck pain. This minor thesis was written by a post-graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
