Having a chronic headache is tough. It drains you of your energy. It affects your work and puts a damper on your social life.
Having a headache on a regular basis is tough to handle. You just want to get a reprieve from them.
Dose-response and efficacy of spinal manipulation for care of cervicogenic headache: a dual-center randomized controlled trial
The purpose of this study was to identify the dose-response relationship between visits for spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) and chronic cervicogenic (neck based) headache (CGH) outcomes; to evaluate effect spinal manipulative therapy by comparison with a light massage, which was used as a control.
They found that there was a linear dose-response relationship between SMT visits and days with CGH. For the highest and most effective dose of 18 SMT visits, CGH days were reduced by half, and about 3 more days per month than for the light-massage control.
