Abstract: The goal of manual medicine / chirotherapy is to relieve patients of their pain. However, some types of pain cannot be treated by manual therapeutic methods. Therefore, the current article reviews non-manual forms of pain therapy and their mechanisms of action. A distinction must be made here between nociceptive and neuropathic pain. On one hand, these are pharmacological approaches based on world health organization (WHO) recommended treatment techniques and their current guidelines, whilst on the other hand they represent invasive treatments such as neuromodulation. For the benefit of all patients, this article aims to span a division between the two mentioned approaches to pain therapy.
