Chronic Migraines Helped by Chi­ro­prac­tic, Study Shows

A study pub­lished in the Feb­ru­ary 2000 issue of the Jour­nal of Manip­u­la­tive and Phys­i­o­log­i­cal Ther­a­peu­tics, (JMPT), showed that peo­ple suf­fer­ing with migraine headaches were helped with chi­ro­prac­tic care. The study was con­ducted in Aus­tralia at the Chi­ro­prac­tic Research cen­tre of Mac­quarie Uni­ver­sity. In this research 177 vol­un­teers were stud­ied who had migraine headaches for over 18 years on aver­age. Many of the par­tic­i­pants also suf­fered from neck pain.

The aver­age response of the group that received chi­ro­prac­tic care showed a sta­tis­ti­cally sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment in migraine fre­quency, dura­tion, and dis­abil­ity. The study also showed that those who received chi­ro­prac­tic care were able to reduce their med­ica­tion use, with a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber reduc­ing their med­ica­tion usage to zero! Addi­tion­ally, 59% had no neck pain after a period of two months, and another 35% had a decrease in neck pain.

The researchers con­cluded this study, built on pre­vi­ous stud­ies that had sim­i­lar results. “There have now been sev­eral stud­ies demon­strat­ing sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment in headaches or migraines after chi­ro­prac­tic.” The Migraine Foun­da­tion of Aus­tralia esti­mates that some 12% of Aus­tralians ages 15 and over, expe­ri­ence migraines.
