CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION IN NECK RELATED HEADACHES

Vol. 1 Issue 65

A recent study published in the Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics evaluated the effects of six chiropractic manipulations, over a course of three weeks, on a group of headache sufferers. The results were:

1. Use of painkillers decreased by 36%

2. Headache intensity decreased by 36%

3. The number of headache hours decreased by 69%

This study concluded that, “Spinal manipulation has a significant positive effect in cases of cervicogenic (neck-related) headaches.”
