Chiropractic More Effective than Massage and Drugs for Headaches

A study conducted by researchers at Northwestern Health Sciences University found that spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) appears to have a better effect than massage for cervicogenic headaches. It was also found that SMT was just as effective as commonly used prescription medications for tension-type headache and migraine headache. Randomized clinical trials (nine trials involving 683 patients) on chronic headache were included in the review. Two authors independently extracted data and performed methodological scoring of selected trials.
