Can Chiropractic Relieve Migraine Headache Pain?
It’s official, chiropractic care produces significant relief of migraine headache pain! Researchers at Macquarie University in Australia performed a 6 month randomized controlled trial of chiropractic care for migraine headache pain with amazing results. Patients were studied for two months before chiropractic, then received two months of chiropractic care and finally, were studied for two months following their chiropractic care. 22% of the patients reported greater than 90% reduction in their headaches after only 2 months of chiropractic care! Approximately 50% more patients reported significant improvement in their migraines!
Unfortunately, headaches are so common that many people think that headaches are normal! Headache pain is a sign that something is wrong. Pain is your body talking to you, trying to alert you that something is not right. Researchers have often noted the relationship between the spine and many types of headaches, like tension headaches, cluster headaches, sinus headaches, and migraine headaches. A common underlying cause of many headaches is impingement of the nerves of the cervical spine, i.e. neck.
