Do you have kids that suffer with neck pain and migraines? Studies have shown for years that most migraines and other headaches stem from neck problems. Adults have been seeking chiropractic care to address the cause of the
neck pain and migraines. Chiropractic is also very effective in treating pediatric cases of headaches and pain relief.
A case study of a 12 year old boy with vertigo, neck pain and migraines is just one of many studies showing that chiropractic is beneficial to children. The headaches and pain were so severe the child was missing many days of school. The boy was treated 3 to 4 times per week the first month with chiropractic then gradually decreased treatment to one time per month. The child was also shown home stretching for his neck.
The neck pain and migraines stopped after just one week of treatment. The vertigo relief occurred gradually then eventually stopped also. The boy’s attendance improved by 75% since beginning chiropractic.
Another case study of a girl with neck pain and migraines after an accident showed resolution of symptoms after just 5 visits. She was also able to return to all activities after just 9 visits.
As a Freehold Chiropractor we see many cases too where kids and teenagers are suffering with neck pain and migraines. This past summer we were fortunate enough to help a 17 year old who came in for back pain. The mother was telling us how he also has experienced migraines for as long as can remember. Upon a thorough evaluation it was found multiple areas of his neck were subluxated. These subluxations or misalignments are many times the cause of neck pain and migraines. After just one visit his headaches went away. By addressing the cause of the symptoms, we get results where traditional medicine fails. Medication has its place but too many times they only look at the location of pain. Drugs also only mask the symptoms and don’t fix the cause.
These studies as well as many others show the extreme effectiveness of chiropractic in helping children that suffer with neck pain and migraines. If you have children who are suffering and looking for neck pain relief or migraine relief contact a chiropractor near you.
