Title: The effectiveness of first rib adjustment as an adjunct to the treatment of mechanical neck pain
Authors: Brown, Colin Douglas 
Keywords: Chiropractic;Manipulation (Therapeutics)
Issue Date: 2006
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the efficacy of the adjustment of the first rib as an adjunct to the manipulative treatment of mechanical neck pain, according to subjective and objective clinical findings.

The results of this study would indicate to Chiropractors which specific types of adjustments, used for the treatment of mechanical neck pain, would potentially increase the cervical range of motion and / or decrease pain experienced by the patient and thus lead to a more effective treatment protocol. The outcome of the study will help clinicians select the more appropriate treatment for patients based on the subjective and objective outcomes.
