The aim of this study is to determine which of tertiary prevention spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) or a home exercise program is the more efficient approach to reduce pain and increase functional capacity, quality of life and general health condition. To do so, 60 participants with chronic cervical pain, will be recruited and divided into 3 groups according to the intervention they will receive: control group, experimental group 1 who will receive preventive chiropractic care in the form of spinal manipulations and experimental group 2 will have to perform an individualized home exercise program on a daily basis. We hypothesize that a group of patient receiving SMT + a home exercise program will present less pain and functional disabilities over a 1 year period. The innovative value of this project is mainly related to the fact that it will generate new and potentially very useful data concerning the clinical significance of preventive chiropractic care. Moreover, such data will be beneficial to our profession as chiropractic makes a step towards prevention, wellness and public health.

Adjustment and manipulation of the vertebral column.
Disease involving a spinal nerve root (see SPINAL NERVE ROOTS) which may result from compression related to INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; SPINAL CORD INJURIES; SPINAL DISEASES; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include radicular pain, weakness, and sensory loss referable to structures innervated by the involved nerve root.
Musculoskeletal manipulation based on the principles of OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE developed in 1874 by Dr Andrew Taylor Still.
The 31 paired peripheral nerves formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral spinal roots from each spinal cord segment. The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.
Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation.
