Headache Relief Is An Adjustment Away!

April 10, 2013

I’ve got good news for headache sufferers! Headache relief can be achieved through Chiropractic. According to the American Chiropractic Association, 14% of people who see chiropractors presently go for headaches. For these patients the good news gets even better. Researchers at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota compared chiropractic care to certain drug therapies used for tension and migraine headaches.

The study, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, followed 218 headache sufferers who received either chiropractic care or drug therapy or both. Pain was reduced 40 to 50% in all groups initially. However, four weeks after all care ceased, only the chiropractic group still retained the benefits, while those who received the drug therapy lost about half of their improvement. Interesting!

Some of my own chiropractic patients come to see me in my Sacramento office when nothing else will relieve their headaches and an adjustment seems to be the answer for most of them. My wife has chronic neck pain which causes severe headaches and a good neck adjustment is always the cure for her.
