Chiropractic Relieves Migraine in Anchorage

With the Migraine Research Foundation reporting that migraine headaches affect 38 million adults and children in the United States (more than asthma and diabetes put together), it's not surprising that Mulholland Chiropractic Center, LLC sees a lot of headache patients in our Anchorage office. Eventhough some patients try to relieve migraine pain with medications, chiropractic is a fantastic, all-natural choice that usually provides positive results.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Migraines

For example, one study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics involved 127 participants ranging in age from 10 to 70-years-old who struggled with frequent (at least monthly) headaches. Each subject engaged in up to 16 chiropractic sessions. The patients noted that their headache frequency, duration, and disability two months before the treatments began, during the duration of the sessions (which was two months), and two months post-treatment.

What the investigators discovered is that chiropractic adjustments reduced the frequency, duration, and disability of the migraine headaches when compared with the control group who didn't receive chiropractic. Even better, this enabled them to take less medication for the pain, offering them an all-natural solution for a chronic condition.

Another report found that a combination of chiropractic and neck massage reduced migraine pain almost 68%.
