|Neck Pain||Procedure: Osteopathic manipulative treatment Procedure: Exercises||Not Applicable|
The purpose of this study is to determine whether manipulative osteopathic treatment associated exercises improves pain and function in individuals with chronic non-specific neck pain Design: a randomized single blind placebo controlled trial will be conducted trial. Patients (n=40) with non-specific neck pain will be randomized to receive 1) osteopathic manipulative treatment and exercise (n=20) or 2) exercise alone (n=20). Participants will receive 8 treatments during 4 weeks.
Clinical outcomes will be obtained at 1 week, four weeks and 24 weeks after end of treatment.
The primary outcome will be pain measured by 11-point numerical pain rating scale.
The secondary outcome will be disability measured by the Neck Disability Index, range of motion measured by Cervical Range of Motion device, Pressure pain threshold measured by electronic algometer.

|Actual Study Completion Date :||September 2017|
Active Comparator: Exercises
Individuals with neck pain will receive a exercises program. Participants will receive treatments during 4 weeks, 1 treatments per week.
Exercise for stretching and strength for neck muscles
Experimental: Osteopathic manipulative treatment
Individuals with neck pain in this group will also receive a exercises program and the participants will receive treatments during 4 weeks, 1 treatments per week associated with Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT)
Procedure: Osteopathic manipulative treatment
Osteopathic manipulative treatment delivered on pragmatic way.
- Pain intensity [ Time Frame: 30 days after end treatment ]measured by numeric rating scale
- range of motion [ Time Frame: 30 days after end treatment ]measured by CROM device
- Pressure pain threshold [ Time Frame: 30 days after end treatment ]measured by electronic algometer
- functionality and disability [ Time Frame: 30 days after end treatment ]measured by Neck Disability Scale
