PMID:  17644487     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
PERSPECTIVE: This study showed an immediate local mechanical hypoalgesic response to specific exercise of the cervical spine. Understanding the pain-relieving effects of exercise will assist the clinician in prescribing the most appropriate exercise protocols for patients with chronic neck pain.
