Chiropractic Great for Migraines

With the Migraine Research Foundation reporting that migraine headaches affect 38 million people in the United States (more than asthma and diabetes put together), it's no surprise that Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees a lot of migraine sufferers in our Harrisburg office. Although some patients try to relieve migraine pain with drugs, chiropractic is a wonderful, all-natural alternative that usually produces positive results.

Research Shows Chiropractic Care Helps With Migraines

For instance, one study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics involved 127 participants ranging in age from 10 to 70-years-old who suffered with regular (at least monthly) migraines. Each subject engaged in up to 16 chiropractic sessions. The patients noted that their headache frequency, duration, and disability two months before the study began, during the duration of the sessions (which was two months), and two months post-treatment.

What the researchers discovered is that chiropractic adjustments reduced the frequency, duration, and disability of the migraine pain when compared with the control subjects who didn't receive chiropractic. Even better, this allowed them to take less medication for the pain, providing them an all-natural solution for a chronic condition.

Another paper found that a combination of chiropractic and neck massage reduced migraine pain almost 68%.
