        Leaver and colleagues conducted a randomized controlled trial to compare the effectiveness of manipulation and mobilization in the treatment of nonspecific neck pain. Analysis of 182 patients with recent onset neck pain revealed that participants treated with neck manipulation did not undergo a more rapid recovery than those treated with mobilization. Statistical analysis revealed no statistical significance between those receiving manipulation and those mobilization in terms of pain, disability, function, global perceived effect, or health-related quality of life.
