Chiropractic provides non-drug relief for migraines
Those who experience migraines can attest to the severe throbbing or stabbing pain that can incapacitate them. Many suffer from a few hours to 3 days with their pain. Migraines are the result of a complex neurological issue that can be associated with many different symptoms, including nausea or vomiting; sensitivity to sound, light touch and smell; tingling in the face or extremities; or even visual disturbances.
Migraines are quite common; in the U.S approximately 39 million children and adults suffer with them as well as approximately 1 billion people worldwide. Women are more affected than men, with approximately 85% of chronic sufferers being women.
One study published in 2017 in the European Journal of Neurology compared spinal manipulations to standard medical care over a 17-month period. The results demonstrated significant reduction in the number of migraine days during the treatment and as well as during a 12 month follow up.
