Marietta Chiropractor Talks About Improving Your Health

As I do most mornings , I like to read over the ” health” section of my Google home page. In doing so today, I come across a topic discussing the latest study on migraine headaches and our understanding of their triggers . I won’t bore anyone about the specifics, but in short, each article briefly summarizes what a migraine is and how it is typically treated. The common treatment noted in all but one of these articles are prescription alternatives (drugs) used for migraines . Only one article mentioned “alternative” therapies such as herbal treatments . NO ONE mentioned more mainstream alternatives like Chiropractic, massage, and physiotherapy. Now I know that you may say to yourself that maybe they didn’t mention these because these treatments don’t work. In answer to that, one can simply do a little further googling to discover enough evidence to support these treatments as viable alternatives to the medical treatments . If one were a more savvy internet researcher, you may even come across a recent 2011 research article (http://www.chiro.org/LINKS/ABSTRACTS/Manual_Therapies_for_Migraine.shtml) that actually compares these drugs to the use of Chiropractic, Massage and Physiotherapy and found All Three to be “equaly efficient” in the management migraines. So i ask again is the media in general just too lazy to dig a little deeper or maybe they , like many people, are biased in thinking that you Need a drug for every disease.
