Methods: To conduct this study, data from existing clinical trials was collected and examined in a systematic way to determine the effects of spinal manipulative therapy on migraine frequency, pain and disability.
Findings: Spinal manipulation was found to have a small effect in decreasing both days with migraine and pain intensity.
Conclusion: Study authors propose spinal manipulative therapy as a potential non-pharmacologic approach to migraine treatment.
Implications: Results from this preliminary study create directions for future migraine research and have clinical implications for the utilizing conservative care for migraine treatment.
