Neck Pain: Combining Exercise and Manual Therapy for Your Neck and Upper Back Leads to Quicker Reductions in Pain Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy, 03/05/2013  

Evidence Based Medicine Clinical Article “Mechanical neck pain” is the name healthcare professionals use when joint and muscle problems result in neck pain. Current evidence suggests that a combination of manual therapy and exercise is effective for patients with mechanical neck pain. A variety of manual therapy treatments for the neck and upper back are currently used to try to lessen neck pain. These treatments include mobilization, which slowly and repeatedly moves the neck joints and muscles, and manipulation, which delivers a single, small, quick movement to the joints and muscles. The researchers concluded that the combination of exercise with neck mobilization and upper back manipulation was more effective in reducing pain in the first week of treatment.
