Chiropractic for Headache Relief

The prevalence of headaches in the US is at an all-time high as over 80% of the population experiences headaches. Billions of dollars a year are being spent on headaches and migraines, yet it’s not one of the top 10 reasons people go to a doctor.

With 25 years of practice, I believe that headaches should be the number-one reason that people see a chiropractor. Why? Chiropractic care can provide fast, effective, consistent headache relief.

Chiropractic Care v. Medications

In 2001, Duke University did a study comparing chiropractic care to the drug amitriptyline.

  • On a short-term basis, the two solutions were found to be equally as effective for relief.
  • On a long-term basis, 82% of people had adverse side effects to amitriptyline. Comparatively, the chiropractic group had fewer headaches even after they stopped care while the amitriptyline group returned to the same state as they did before the study.

People who constantly take medications for headaches can end up having headaches more frequently (rebound headaches).
