Neck Pain & Migraines.

Among a group of 142 patients with a history of migraines, those with concurrent neck pain reported 80% more migraine-related disability than participants without neck pain. The findings add to a growing body of research that suggests the neck plays a role in the migraine headache process, as previous studies have noted an association between cervical dysfunction and migraine intensity and frequency. Doctors of chiropractic are known to utilize spinal manipulation and exercise in the management of neck pain and migraine patients.
