Case Study Of A Patient With Chronic Migraine Headaches

From the August 3, 2003 issue of the peer-reviewed scientific journal, the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, comes a case study of a 35-year-old female who presented with chronic daily tension and migraine headaches. The journal article followed a patient’s history of headaches.

A professional ice skater, sustained a concussion by hitting her head against the ice at age 23. Prior to the accident, she had no health problems or headaches. Following the concussion, tension and migraine headaches started. These symptoms persisted over the next twelve years, during which time the patient utilized daily pain medications.

At age 35 the woman started chiropractic care. Initial examination revealed presence of subluxations in her neck causing nerve interference. Chiropractic adjustments were then begun. The results for this patient were life changing. 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.
