Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Episodic Tension type Headache in Male Subjects: A Case Series Analysis

This study was conducted at the Palmer College of Chiropractic-West Outpatient Clinic. It involved 11 men between the ages of 18 and 40 who suffer from headache. The patients reported consistent and significant reduction in the frequency and duration of headaches. However, the intensity of the headaches in this group was unchanged. The adjustments used were diversified with myofascial trigger point therapy, and moist hot packs. This study reflects a serious limitation of studies found in nearly all research on the effects of spinal care. There is no inter-technique study. Would another adjusting technique be more effective? Less effective? Unfortunately that research was not done.
