New Evidence Supporting the Effectiveness of Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation for Cervicogenic Headache
Thanks to ChiroACCESS for access to this information!
The chiropractic Center for Outcomes Studies at Western States Chiropractic College has completed a new study that provides additional support for the use of spinal manipulation in the treatment of cervicogenic headaches. This study adds to a growing body of independent research that supports the efficacy of chiropractic care. The new study compared two doses of therapy as described in the abstract below.
Dr. Mitch Haas and his team at Western States Chiropractic College investigated the differences in dose (8 versus 16 treatments) and between high velocity low amplitude spinal manipulation versus light massage in the treatment of cervicogenic headache.
