- SMT was found to decrease number of days a person suffers from migraines, and migraine pain/intensity.
- This was a preliminary systematic review, and larger scale RCTs need to be performed to confirm these results.
As with just about all studies, more research needs to be done on the topic, but this study provides some positive support for the use of SMT or chiropractic adjustments for migraines.
At Elevate Chiropractic, I like to combine chiropractic adjustments with appropriate lifestyle modifications, exercise, soft tissue release and rehab to hopefully maximise your results.
If you are suffering from migraines, our approach may help reduce them.
