Chiropractic Care: A Recommended Approach for Headache & Migraine Relief
Migraine affects 39 million people in the United States alone and while there are various coping methods, there’s no known cure. One year-long study showed that chiropractic care helped decrease both migraine and headache intensity, along with a reduction in headache frequency.
We at Levinson Chiropractic in Sandy Springs want to help you develop a routine that can eliminate migraines from your life.
How Chiropractic Care Helps With Migraines and Headaches
If you often suffer from headaches and/or migraines, you unwittingly have a routine that creates a biological environment in your body that no pill can fix. Pills might offer some temporary relief, but they don’t address the root of the problem.
Migraines don’t happen because you’re not taking pain pills; they’re happening for biological reasons, most often tension.
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 more 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.”
Making regular chiropractic care part of your routine is arguably the best way to protect yourself from headache/migraine-inducing tension. We have adjustments that specifically target said tension, allowing your body to calm inflammation, increase blood flow, and loosen your muscles.
The end goal is for chiropractic care to ease the stiffness out of your joints, including in your neck and spine, improve spinal health and nerve function so you don’t have any neural misfiring, and empower your body to better manage headache and migraine pain.
