Wednesday 2/13/2008 Migraines and Chiropractic

Patients often seek care in my office for migraine headaches--as a rule they are pleasantly surprised with the results attained through chiropractic care.  

Research studies on the subject demonstrate the following benefits with chiropractic:

  • 60% reduction in migraine frequency (less than half the migraines!)
  • 14% reduction in pain during migraine
  • 20% reduction in duration of migraine
  • 36% reduction in medication needed for migraine

 Other research on the subject has yielded similar results.  I believe that chiropractic should be the first choice in treating migraine because 1)there is minimal chance of adverse reactions--its very safe, 2)benefits from chiropractic care are long lasting, not temporary as with medication, and 3)chiropractic care treats the source of the problem for most people with migraines, a poorly functioning neck.
