Neck Pain Evidence Summary

This evidence summary is designed for health-care professionals who treat patients with neck pain, ranging from mild pain to whiplash. The summary presents helpful and unhelpful treatments as well as guidance on assessing patients.

The Institute for Work & Health (IWH) created this summary to share the evidence synthesis completed by The Bone and Joint Task Force on Neck Pain. IWH worked in concert with the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, the Ontario Chiropractic Association and some members of the Executive Committee of the 2000-2010 Bone and Joint Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders to prepare this summary.
