We know how difficult chronic headache pain can be. Dr. James Ellis & Dr. Lyndsay Martin and our staff have worked with many people in our Woburn & Chelmsford, MA chiropractic office, and we've had great success in helping patients reduce their headache pain.
A 2016 research paper verifies what we see in our office. In this report, the authors started with 110 individuals who were suffering from headache pain that originated in the cervical spine. 58 of these patients were given a series of neck adjustments; 52 were given some stretches and exercises. The treatment period for both groups was four weeks.
The paper found that the patients who received cervical and thoracic spinal adjustments "experienced significantly greater reductions in headache intensity, disability, headache frequency, headache duration, and medication intake as compared to the group that received mobilization and exercise."
The study also found that these results were maintained at the three-month follow-up exam.
Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat headache, back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. If you're tired of suffering, give Dr. James Ellis & Dr. Lyndsay Martin a call today at our Woburn & Chelmsford, MA office at (781) 460-0939. We're here to help get you out of pain.
