Chiropractic Care for Kids with Migraines, Neck Pain, and Vertigo

Chiropractic Care for Kids with Migraines, Neck Pain, and Vertigo

Kids and chiropractiicMany people know chiropractic care is an effective treatment for adults, but did you know it can also be a powerful pediatric treatment? A recent study demonstrates just how much chiropractic care can benefit children and adolescents.

One twelve year-old boy suffered from vertigo, neck pain, and migraines so much that he was forced to miss over half of his school days for the past several years. In this study, the boy began visiting a chiropractor 3-4 times a week and later, once a month.

After the first week, the boy stopped experiencing migraines and neck pain completely. At first, his vertigo attacks decreased in severity and frequency and eventually, the vertigo attacks stopped occurring at all. With significantly reduced pain, the boy was able to attend school more frequently. His number of absences decreased by 75%, drastically improving his ability to stay involved in school.

This case study offers hope for adolescents and children suffering from vertigo, migraines, and neck pain. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective treatment on its own or as an addition to conventional treatment.

Why Chiropractic is the Best Solution for Sciatica Pain

Sciatica and chiropracticSciatica and chiropractic
Sciatica pain is often so debilitating that it forces people to miss work and other normal activities.  Of all patients with low-back pain, sciatica patients have the highest level of disability (1).  In fact, patients with sciatica are disabled for an average of 72 days according to Norwegian public-health records.
Fortunately, a recent study offers hope to sciatica patients: chiropractic care can speed the recovery from sciatica flare ups and allow patients to return to work sooner (2).

The study evaluated 44 Norwegian workers after they came to the hospital with severe sciatica pain. Most of those patients had been experiencing pain for three or more weeks prior to their hospital visit.
The hospital chiropractor examined each patient to evaluate his/her posture and gait, range of motion, and palpation of the lumbar spine.

The chiropractic then performed various joint adjustments to the spine and other limbs that had been injured through patients compensating for pain. Ice treatment was also used to relieve soft tissue soreness.Patients were treated daily in the hospital and later three times a week for the first two weeks. Some patients needed additional follow-up treatment but typically did not exceed 14 treatments.

In matter of 21 days, 91% of patients returned to work full-time. Two patients returned to work part time. Researchers concluded this study demonstrates the potent benefits of collaboration between chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons. Chiropractic care can put an end to your sciatica pain so you can begin living your life fully again.
