Journal Australas Chiropr & Osteopat. 1997 Nov;6(3):85-91
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Objective: To present the characteristics of four cases of migraine, who were included as participants in a prospective trial on chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy for migraine.

Method: Participants in a migraine research trial, were reviewed for the symptoms or clinical features and their response to manual therapy.

Results: The four selected cases of migraine responded dramatically to SMT, with numerous self reported symptoms being either eliminated or substantially reduced. Average frequency of episodes was reduced on average by 90%, duration of each episode by 38%, and use of medication was reduced by 94%. In addition, several associated symptoms were substantially reduced, including nausea, vomiting, photophobia and phonophobia.

Discussion: The various cases are presented to assist practitioners making a more informed prognosis.
