Chiropractic care is already a good option for helping manage migraines and many Springfield migraine sufferers have already experienced this. The numbers for migraine sufferers are significant. Some 18% of women and 6% of men have experienced at least one episode of migraine each year in the US.
Studies are always ongoing to understand the causes of migraines in a better attempt to control them and help patients. One particular study looked at the aspect of glucose intake and how that affects things. A study of just 4 women was undertaken and they were given a ketone based beverage twice a day for a month. This beverage effectively replaced any glucose intake and the results showed that there was a big drop in migraine headaches in the group over that period of time.
Furthermore, due to the lower intake of glucose, the patients even lost some weight and the ketone increase benefited them in other ways thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects.
These findings led to a new study with a larger group of 90 patients with a placebo controlled trial. It will last a total of 3 months and provide more data and understanding, particularly if this group also finds a reduction in migraine instances.
These are both good studies and provide more understanding in the mechanics of migraine causes and ultimately lead to fewer people suffering.
Of course, chiropractic care is also one of the leading treatments in migraine control and prevention. They can also be used in conjunction with nutritional supplements that your chiropractor could help advise with. Studies in the UK in 2010 and 2014 studies have shown that chiropractic treatment is a very good treatment for migraines, so Springfield migraine sufferers can be happy with that news,
