Chiropractic Treatment of Migraine Headache

Gresham natural migraine treatment by Dr. RamseyWith the Migraine Research Foundation reporting that migraine headaches affect 38 million adults and children in the United States (more than diabetes and asthma put together), it's no surprise that Dr. Ramsey treats a lot of migraine sufferers in our Gresham office. While some patients try to relieve migraine pain with drugs, chiropractic care is a fantastic, all-natural approach that often produces positive results.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps With Migraines

For example, one report published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics involved 127 patients ranging in age from 10 to 70-years-old who suffered with regular (at least monthly) migraines. 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 researchers discovered is that chiropractic reduced the frequency, duration, and disability of the migraine pain when compared with the control subjects who didn't receive chiropractic. Furthermore, this enabled them to take less medication for the pain, offering them an all-natural solution for a chronic condition.

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