Chiropractic Research Review

Migraines Relieved by Spinal Manipulation

Participants in a migraine research trial were reviewed for symptoms and clinical features and their response to manual therapy. The four selected cases of migraine responded dramatically to spinal manipulation therapy (SMT), with numerous self-reported symptoms either eliminated or substantially reduced.

Average frequency of episodes was reduced on average by 90%, duration of each episode by 38%, and use of medication by 94%. In addition, several associated symptoms were substantially reduced, including nausea, vomiting, photophobia and phonophobia. Each of the four cases is presented to assist practitioners in making a more informed prognosis.
