North County St. Louis, MO Cervicogenic Headache Treatment

North County St. Louis, MO headache care by Dr. HollandWe know how difficult long-term headache pain can be. Dr. Holland and our staff have worked with many patients in our North County St. Louis, MO chiropractic clinic, and we've had great success in helping people reduce their headache pain.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Cervicogenic Headaches

A 2016 research study confirms what we see in our practice. In this study, the authors started with 110 patients who were suffering from headache pain that originated in the cervical spine. 58 of these patients were given a series of neck adjustments; 52 were given some stretches and exercises. The treatment period for both groups was four weeks.

The paper found that the individuals who received cervical and thoracic spinal adjustments "experienced significantly greater reductions in headache intensity, disability, headache frequency, headache duration, and medication intake as compared to the group that received mobilization and exercise."

The study also found that these outcomes were maintained at the three-month follow-up exam.

Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat headache, back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. If you're tired of suffering, give Dr. Holland a call today at our North County St. Louis, MO office at (314) 867-8888. We're here to help get you out of pain.
