Chiropractor’s thought for the Week: 

A review of studies on chiropractic care of migraine sufferers brought me the following information. One study, which had more than 2,600 patients total showed that chiropractic treatment may serve as a good preventive treatment for migraines. Another trial found that 22 percent of people who had chiropractic treatment saw the number of attacks drop 90 percent. In that same study, 49 percent said they had a significant reduction in pain intensity. One study of 127 migraine sufferers in Australia found that those that received chiropractic treatment had fewer attacks and needed to take less medication. A 1999 study found that more than 80 percent of the patients blamed stress for leading to their migraine attacks. Therefore researchers believe chiropractic care might physically help reduce the body’s reaction to stress. As a practicing chiropractor, with 30 years’ experience, I have found that most migraine sufferers lower cervical subluxations. Adjusting the lower neck and leaving the upper neck alone seems to have the most success. This may not be the case for everyone, but definitely the majority.
