Chi­ro­prac­tic and Migraines, A Case Study

From the Feb­ru­ary 2004 issue of the Jour­nal of Chi­ro­prac­tic Pedi­atrics, comes a doc­u­mented case study of a 28 year old women who suf­fered with migraine headaches for over a decade before being helped with chi­ro­prac­tic care. In her case there was no his­tory of pre­vi­ous trauma. Her migraines would last for sev­eral days and would cause nau­sea and dizziness.

In addi­tion to her headaches, she also revealed a his­tory of an irreg­u­lar men­strual cycle, she would nor­mally men­stru­ate no more than twice per year. This prob­lem resulted in infer­til­ity. After years of not becom­ing preg­nant, she sought help from a repro­duc­tive endocri­nol­o­gist. She was placed on med­ica­tion which cre­ated addi­tional side effects but did allow her to become preg­nant. Unfor­tu­nately, after 9 weeks she suf­fered a miscarriage.

After years of these prob­lems the woman started chi­ro­prac­tic care. She was ini­tially given an exam­i­na­tion and it was deter­mined that she did have spinal prob­lems. A series of spe­cific chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments were then ini­ti­ated. A re-​examination was per­formed one month after care began. The patient reported a reduc­tion in her headaches. After the sec­ond month of care another exam­i­na­tion was per­formed and the patient reported that she had no inci­dence of migraine headache for the entire pre­vi­ous month. Addi­tion­ally, the patient noticed that she had started a reg­u­lar men­strual cycle. Within six months of the ini­ti­a­tion of chi­ro­prac­tic care, she became pregnant.
