A Randomized Controlled Trial for the Chiropractic Treatment of Migraines
One hundred twenty-seven volunteers between the ages of 10 and 70 years were recruited through media advertising. The diagnosis of migraine was made on the basis of the International Headache Society standard, with a minimum of at least one migraine per month.
Two months of chiropractic SMT (diversified technique) at vertebral fixations determined by the practitioner (maximum of 16 treatments). The results of this study support previous results showing that a statistically significant number of those who participated in this study reported significant improvement in migraines after chiropractic SMT. This is especially true of those who also reported that stress was a major factor for their migraines.
So, if you, someone you know, or someone you love suffers from migraines, call the office 386.310.8096.
Other headaches: If not migraines, many of you suffer from persistent headaches other than migraines. Chiropractic treatment, as well as acupuncture, helps many, many who suffer stop suffering. By the way, trigger foods, stress, lack of sleep, hormonal balances are also some of the major factors contributing to headaches. Using Functional Medicine, Dr. Valcarcel can find the underlying roots of your headaches and treat them naturally.
