Evidence that chiropractors help migraines

You don't have to take our word for it that chiropractors can help with migraines. Scientific studies about the topic show that the treatment is effective.

An article from the European Journal of Neurology details a study in which a study of just over 100 people who suffered regular migraines. The group that received chiropractic treatment reported a drop in the number of migraine days and the severity of those migraines.[1]

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published a study in which 72% of the chronic migraine sufferers experienced an improvement in frequency and severity of migraines. They also saw a reduction in the use of medication.[2]

Research on chiropractic for migraines is still ongoing, but there is evidence that it can help relive you from migraine pain. So let's talk about how it works.

How does a chiropractor treat migraines?

According to the American Chiropractic Association, the greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck.

There are plenty of reasons why that muscle tension happens. Stress can lead to persistent muscle tension, even though you may not notice it happening. Our sedentary lives can lead to poor posture, putting extra strain on the neck. This is especially true during a time when many are working at home and moving less (learn more about that here).

So how does a chiropractor help?

  • Chiropractic adjustments move your spine into the correct position which leads to less tension, along with a host of other benefits.
  • Massage therapy helps to relieve you of muscle tension that may be contributing to your headaches.
  • Lifestyle advice on posture, nutrition and other situations that might be leading to more frequent and more painful migraines.
