The doctors at Quality Life Chiropractic & Massage in Rochester excel in easing tension and relaxing your musculature. This alleviates stress on your body and makes way for fewer to no headaches. Here’s what the research says on chiropractic care for headaches...
Studies Support Chiropractic Care for Headaches
Research shows that spinal manipulation--one of the primary treatments provided by doctors of chiropractic--may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.
A 2014 report in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) found that interventions commonly used in chiropractic care improved outcomes for the treatment of acute and chronic neck pain and increased benefit was shown in several instances where a multimodal approach to neck pain had been used.
A 2017 article, published in the European Journal of Neurology, detailed a 17-month randomized study that included 104 patients who suffered from at least one migraine attack per month. The duration of migraines were significantly reduced in the chiropractic than in the control pharmaceutical group toward the end of the follow-up period of the study.
A meta-analysis of six studies following 677 migraine patients found that spinal manipulation reduced migraine days and pain/intensity. They concluded: “Results from this preliminary meta-analysis suggest that spinal manipulation may reduce migraine days and pain/intensity.”
