Case Study of a Person with Chronic Migraines
In the August 3, 2003 publication of the peer-reviewed scientific journal, the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, comes a case study of a 35-year-old female who suffered from daily tension and migraine headaches. A professional ice skater, suffered a concussion by striking her head on the ice at age 23. Before the accident, she had no health issues or headaches. After the concussion, tension and migraine headaches started. These symptoms continued over the next 12 years, during which time the individual used daily pain medications.
At age 35, the woman began chiropractic care. Original evaluation exposed existence of subluxations in her neck causing nerve interference. Chiropractic adjustments were then started. The results for this individual were life altering. Evaluation of the patient's condition occurred by doctor's observation, patient's subjective description of symptoms, and thermographic scans. The results showed that all headaches were gone following three months of care. At the conclusion of her case at one year, all symptoms remained absent.
