Chiropractic Proven Effective in Treating Headaches


According to a report published by Wrong Diagnosis in the latter half of 2010, over 16% of Americans get headaches annually. In general numbers, this figure crosses a whopping 45 million and several of these people get headaches on a daily basis. Quite clearly, headaches are one of the most common problems that most of the people from all over the world suffer. The sad part is that many times people don’t pay sufficient attention to their headaches and just suffer until their condition gets really miserable.

There are several types of headaches, such as common headaches, migraine headaches, cluster headaches, and tension headaches. Headaches are often a symptom of something that’s not right with your body and therefore, you should see a doctor when you suffer headaches.

For instance, carcinogenic headache is a common type of headache which is often misunderstood by people in terms of its diagnosis. This pain is associated with the skeletal structure of head or the neck muscles. Also, it has a relationship with Migraine headache as well. To support this fact, Bondi conducted a study which indicated that 64% of the migraine patients also had neck pain along with their migraine. If you notice that intensity or pattern of the pain increases or decreases with the motion or change of position of your head, it’s a clear indication of carcinogenic headache. At the same time, the chiropractic treatment has been found more cost-effective as compared to the traditional medication.

Chiropractic care has been found quite effective in reducing pain caused by carcinogenic headaches, according to several studies. As per the study by Haas, Spaceman, Peterson, Anticking, and Varese last year, chiropractic care has been proven effective for nearly 50% people who suffered from carcinogenic headaches. These people were given chiropractic treatment for up to duration of 24 weeks. This research also observed that the quantity of traditional medication required by these patients had also been reduced significantly over the course of 24 weeks.

Indeed, Chiropractic methods of treatment have been quite impressive in the way they managed, reduced and even totally cured the patients suffering from this complex kind of headache. At the same time, the chiropractic treatment has been found more cost-effective as compared to the traditional medication. These factors have resulted in a wider acceptance of chiropractic care as the first choice for the treatment of headaches, such as carcinogenic headache and migraine.
