When you're stricken with constant and reoccurring migraines, it can be difficult if not impossible to live a normal and productive life. And while it may seem as if your almost debilitating headaches are never going to stop, recent research shows that chiropractic may be the first step to a pain-free life. We see quite a few headache sufferers in our Portland chiropractic office, and Dr. Theresa M. King has been able to help many of our neighbors get relief.
Chiropractic Proven Effective for Portland Migraine Sufferers
Migraine headache sufferers who get regular chiropractic adjustments report having fewer episodes of migraines overall...by up to 90 percent less. Furthermore, they also indicate that the headaches that they do experience are shorter in duration and less severe.
Less Reliance on Medication
An added bonus that chiropractic tends to offer migraine sufferers is less of a reliance on drugs. This means more time living the life you love and less time trying to sleep off the migraine and the medication that is designed to help it, which is a definite plus.
