Preventing Migraines with Chiropractic

North County St. Louis, MO natural migraine treatment by Dr. HollandWith the Migraine Research Foundation reporting that migraine headaches affect 38 million people in the United States (more than asthma and diabetes put together), it's not surprising that Dr. Holland treats a lot of headache sufferers in our North County St. Louis, MO office. While some people choose to relieve migraine pain with drugs, chiropractic care is a fantastic, all-natural alternative that usually produces positive results.

Research Shows Chiropractic Care Helps With Migraines

For example, one report published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics involved 127 participants ranging in age from 10 to 70-years-old who suffered with frequent (at least monthly) headaches. Each subject received 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 pain when compared with the control patients who didn't receive chiropractic. Furthermore, this enabled them to take less medication for the pain, offering them an all-natural answer for a chronic problem.

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