A new study from the prestigious medical journal, “The Annals of Internal Medicine,” reports that chiropractic is more effective for neck pain than medication.
In the study, 272 patients with acute or subacute neck pain were given one of three treatments: medication, exercise with the advice of a health practitioner, or chiropractic care. After 12 weeks of treatment, patients in the chiropractic and exercise groups experienced the most pain reduction. When compared to the medication group, both exercise and chiropractic had more than doubled the likelihood that participants experienced complete relief of their pain. For chiropractic patients, these benefits lasted for at least a year, demonstrating that chiropractic can provide long-term relief.
The strong success of chiropractic and exercise is likely due to the fact that both treatments address the cause of neck pain, rather than just masking the symptoms. Whether your neck pain is a result of an injury or sitting at a desk for long hours, chiropractic care can restore your normal health free of pain, without the adverse effects of drugs.

Really great experience, the masseuse is professional and friendly and she really worked out the kinks in my back. The Chiro is very thorough and takes his time explaining all the options. I have found my new Chiro office and they have great prices too! Very pleased:)
Excellent place! Dr Jain is D best Doctor Chiro. He knows where, what and how to make you feel good. I was suffering with lower back pain and he was on dot in getting it taken care. Been to lot of places and spend lot of $. But since I meet Dr Jain he fixed my back right and I am a happy camper. Very efficient and friendly staff. Highly recommend this place!
Dr. Jain is AMAZING!! I've been to some crappy chiropractors, this guy knows how to heal and adjust. I'm a musician and was having carpal tunnel like symptoms. He cured my pain and I can play guitar again without my hands tingling and going numb.
I was referred by the woman who gives me massages. She was right . He is so informative. I got into a car accident in March and finally decided to go in and see a chiropractic. Best decision ever. Totally worth it
I have been to this clinic for Chiro treatment. Dr Bharat explained to me about my pain and the reason why I have the pain. I am impressed with his knowledge. I truly recommend this clinic. The staff there is amazing.
Dr. Jain works together as a team to make sure that his patients are not hurried, given great care and leave happy. He explained thoroughly about my conditions and educated me on how to take care of it in the future. He really takes time with his patients and listens to them.
