Chiropractic Helps Migraine

Woburn natural migraine treatment by Dr. EllisWith the Migraine Research Foundation reporting that migraine headaches affect 38 million adults and children in the United States (more than asthma and diabetes put together), it's no surprise that Dr. Ellis sees a lot of headache patients in our Woburn office. Eventhough some people choose to relieve migraine pain with drugs, chiropractic is a great, all-natural choice that consistently provides positive results.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps With Migraines

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

What the researchers discovered is that spinal manipulation therapy reduced the frequency, duration, and disability of the migraine headaches when compared with the control patients who didn't receive chiropractic. In addition, this enabled them to take less medication for the pain, providing them an all-natural solution for a chronic problem.

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