Many people suffer from severe headaches but fortunately we have some very good Manhatten migraine treatment options available. Migraines affect some 15% or so of the population and most will likely take to medication to help relieve the pain. However, this isn’t the only option. Another option exists without potential side effects too.
Reviews of RCTs, (randomized controlled trials) have found that manual therapies such as chiropractic treatment on the pine have equivalent outcomes as medications such as propranolol and topiramate.
Several cases examined showed similar outcomes. Take for example the case of a 24 year old pregnant woman who had been suffering migraines for half her life. She had tried various treatments including massage, osteopathy, physical therapy as well as medication to no avail. With her pregnancy, she tried chiropractic care and found that the spinal manipulation with other therapies helped her so much, she no longer required medication. For a pregnant woman, that’s an important consideration to be able to take fewer drugs.
Another case with a patient who had been suffering migraines for 60 of her 72 years. She was averaging two migraines per week lasting a couple of days and had other symptoms including noise and light sensitivity and nausea. Following chiropractic treatment, her headaches were eliminated and a follow up of the case 7 years later confirmed that they had not returned.
One patient suffered from migraines following an auto accident. Again chiropractic care helped her and while she still gets migraines, the frequency and intensity is much less than before.
A 17 year old boy fell on his head after a pole vault. Not only did he begin to experience migraines soon after, but also had seizures, sleeping problems and even displayed some bi-polar symptoms. A four month course of chiropractic care reversed the migraines two once or twice a month, and continued therapy after 7 months the migraines had gone. 18 months later he still hasn’t had a migraine.
Chiropractic care is an extremely viable option for migraine headaches. If you suffer from them, why not try our Manhatten migraine treatment through chiropractic care?
