Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Headache Treatment, (Cervicogenic Headaches)

A 2016 research study verifies what we see in our practice. In this paper, the authors started with 110 individuals who were suffering with headaches that originated in the cervical spine. 58 of these patients were given a series of neck adjustments; 52 were given some stretches and exercises. The treatment period for both groups was four weeks.

The paper found that the individuals who received cervical and thoracic spinal adjustments ” (headache treatment) experienced significantly greater reductions in headache intensity, disability, headache frequency, headache duration, and medication intake as compared to the group that received mobilization and exercise.”

The investigation also found that these results were maintained at the three-month follow-up exam.

Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to treat chronic headache pain, back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. If you’re tired of suffering, give Clinica Real a call today at our Phoenix, Mesa, AZ office at (602) 222-9595. We’re here to help get you relief.
