There is help for Migraine sufferers. Chiropractic is an answer.
Excerpt from an article published by the University of Maryland Medical Center. Below excerpt is a link for the article in its entirety.
Several clinical trials indicate that spinal manipulation therapy may help treat migraine headaches. In one study of people with migraines, 22% of those who received chiropractic manipulation reported more than a 90% reduction of attacks. Also, 49% reported a significant reduction of the intensity of each migraine.
In another study, people with migraine headaches were randomly assigned to receive spinal manipulation, a daily medication (Elavil), or a combination of both. Spinal manipulation worked as well as Elavil in reducing migraines and had fewer side effects. Combining the two therapies didn't work any better.
In addition, researchers reviewed 9 studies that tested chiropractic for tension or migraine headaches and found that it worked as well as medications in preventing these headaches.

Dr. Clark and his staff are great. He fixed me up 4 years ago and I continue to see him twice a month, it's a way of life and would never give it up. Thank you American Family Spine and Health.
