Pub Med and the US National Library of Medicine, in cooperation with the National Institutes of Health, published a Journal of Canadian Chiropractic Association retrospective study of 50 pediatric cases. Children ages 6-18 years of age were treated for uncomplicated neck pain using five visits over 19 days. Treatment was limited to spinal manipulative therapy in 96% of the cases. Significant improvement was recorded in 96% of the files reviewed, concluding mechanical neck pain appears to be successfully managed by chiropractic care in this retrospective study.
