Study 11: “The impact of spinal manipulation on migraine pain and disability: a systematic review and meta-analysis” Rist et al.
This systematic review evaluated the effectiveness of spinal manipulation on migraine pain and disability. After a systematic search, six studies were included. A meta-analysis of the included studies found that spinal manipulation was more effective than the comparators (active and passive) for migraine days/frequency, pain intensity, and disability. While the superiority (effect size) of spinal manipulation over the comparators was small, the key takeaway from this systematic review is that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for migraine and can positively effect migraine days/frequency, pain intensity, and disability.
