Chiropractic care for migraines
Chiropractic care for migraines is extremely effective way to help patients. I would like to share a story about a patient that I recently took care of. this is a typical case that I have seen thousands of times in my office. the case was a 25 year old female. The patient had two small children and was in an automobile accident. Following the acient she began experiencing severe migraines and went to two neurologist, had an mri and ct scan and was deemed normal. After a trial of pain meds she came to my office. After two weeks of care here headaches were reduced from daily to 2 times a week. Following 3 more weeks of care her headaches were completely resolved.
Medication may mitigate migraine misery
. In the Science Daily September 11, 2014 issue a new study was performed for the 36 million Americans who suffer from migraine headaches. Study participants were evaluated before and after their trial period using objective measures of disability, self-efficiency and mindfulness.
Participants were also instructed to keep headache logs. Specifically the participants who had physical treatment as opposed to medicated treatment had 1.4 of fewer migraines per month than those who did not. Based on these findings it is evident that manual treatment is more efficient for migraine headaches rather than standard medications.
