Some may argue that there hasn’t been many studies on the use of Chiropractic Care of migraines. However, it can be proven that it is beneficial to a large number of people. One study showed that 22 percent of patients who had undergone chiropractic treatment witnessed the amount of migraine attacks they experienced drop by 90 percent and another 49 percent in the same study said they had a notable drop in pain intensity. Chiropractic treatment may or may not be for you: if you take certain medications or supplements, if you have osteoporosis, or if you have nerve damage, you should disclose this information to the Doctor before undergoing any chiropractic adjustments. This may or may not apply to other forms of chiropractic care such as massage therapy, exercises, stretch therapy and other therapies.
