CHIROPRACTIC FOR MIGRAINES… INVESTIGATED!
Did you know that in February 2000 a reputable research journal called “The Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics” JMPT for short published a paper assessing how effective chiropractic adjustments are in the treatment of migraines1...
The trial had 3 stages:
Stage 1 - 2 months of data collection before the treatment.
Stage 2 - 2 months of treatment
Stage 3 - another 2 months of data collection after the treatment.
Then compare the data…
They had 127 volunteers between the ages of 10 and 70 with the diagnosis of Migraine based on the International Headache Society standard and a minimum of one migraine per month.
The average response of the treatment group showed significant improvements in migraine frequency, duration, disability and medication use. They stated that 22% of people reported more than a 90% reduction of their migraines and approximately 50% of participants reported significant improvement in each episode.

We help a lot of people each week looking for relief from migraines and headaches or patients who want to prevent migraines and headaches from coming back.
Is this right for you?... to be put simply, you need to be assessed first…
Headaches that come from misaligned and fixated joints between the skull and upper neck vertebrae are called Cervico-genic headaches and are more common than you might think…
What causes these misalignments to occur is a myriad of things in any normal person’s life… mobile phones, tablets and computers, improper pillows, beds and sleeping positions, sports, falls, exercises and accidents… now and in the past all play a role in our current spinal health.
At Powerhouse we regularly see patients report significant improvements in their headaches and migraines when we improve the position and motion of the vertebra in their necks and relieve tension off their spine and nervous system with chiropractic care. Our free spinal rehabilitation classes each Wednesday are designed to help get the most out of your chiropractic care here at Powerhouse as well so you’re covering all your bases.
If you have any questions, we have an enquiry form where you can ask us questions or request an appointment with Dr Ryan to see if Chiropractic care is right for you.
