With the Migraine Research Foundation reporting that migraine headaches affect 38 million adults and children in the U.S. (more than diabetes and asthma put together), it's not surprising that Dr. Remond Weinberg treats a lot of migraine patients in our Smyrna, GA office. While some people choose to relieve migraine pain with drugs, chiropractic is a great, all-natural choice that often provides positive results.
Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps With Migraines
For instance, one report published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics involved 127 people ranging in age from 10 to 70-years-old who suffered with regular (at least monthly) headaches. Each subject engaged in up to 16 chiropractic sessions. The subjects 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 investigators discovered is that chiropractic reduced the frequency, duration, and disability of the migraine headaches when compared with the control group who didn't receive chiropractic. Even better, this allowed them to take less medication for the pain, offering them an all-natural solution for a chronic condition.
Another study found that a combination of chiropractic and neck massage reduced migraine headaches almost 68%.
