Headache Relief Through Chiropractic

As per the American Chiropractic Association 14% of the public who see chiropractors presently go for headaches. For these patients the good news has become a lot better. Researchers at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota, compared chiropractic care to particular drug therapies used for tension and migraine headaches. The study, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, followed 218 headache sufferers who were given either chiropractic care or drug therapy or both. Discomfort was reduced 40 to 50% in all of the groups initially. However, 4 weeks after all care was stopped, just the chiropractic group still retained the benefits, while those that received the drug therapy lost about 50 % of their improvement.
