Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To describe the use of chiropractic care for a patient with migraine headache.

CLINICAL FEATURES:

A patient suffered from migraine headaches after an automobile accident. Neck disability scores, visual analog score, and algometry scores were used to track patient progress.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME:

The patient's range of motion, flexibility, and strength improved following a regimen of spinal manipulation and active and passive therapeutic care. After 12 weeks of treatment, the duration, frequency, and intensity of her migraines decreased.

CONCLUSION:

This case offers an example of the potential effects of chiropractic and rehabilitative treatment for migraine headache sufferers.
