Chiropractic Treatment For Migraine Headaches

If you’ve ever had a migraine headache, you know how debilitating it can be. For millions of people, the onset of a migraine means their life has effectively gone on hold, because they can do nothing but lie in a darkened room and wait till the pain goes away. Indeed, the Migraine Research Foundation says that about one in four U.S. households has a member who gets migraines, and that adds up to more than ten percent of the population. What’s worse, migraines are most frequent in the working population — the 25 to 55 age range — which costs the U.S. economy billions of dollars each year in lost work days.

Migraine sufferers have tried many remedies without success, but there is growing evidence that chiropractic treatment from a Chalfont chiropractor can alleviate or even stop migraines. Several recent studies have shown that chiropractic spinal manipulation can be effective, especially since the cervical spine is often the source of migraine headaches. These treatments have compared favorably to pharmacotherapy in the studies.

It doesn’t seem to make a difference if the chiropractic treatments by a chiropractor in chalfont are manual or instrument assisted. The studies show that both treatments are equally effective.

The important fact is that migraine sufferers should try a Chalfont PA chiropractor as a therapy, because it may offer relief from a chronic condition that often is resistant to other forms of treatment. The earlier the treatment the better, because as migraine sufferers know, an effective treatment when the symptoms first appear can sometimes stave off a full blown attack.
