Successful Treatment of Chronic Recurrent Headaches
A 42-year-old working female had a ten-year history of mixed tension,migraine headache (diagnosed by her physician) and TMJ(diagnosed by her dentist). The headaches had been mild for several years, but two years prior to seeking massage therapy and chiropractic treatments she experienced exacerbation of her condition. The headaches were occurring daily, often for a large part of the day and were relieved only by increasing doses of medications including salicylates, and barbiturates. She started to fear her increasing dependence on the medications. Beginning in October 2010 she was treated by chiropractor followed with 60 min therapeutic massage sessions targeting the muscles of the upper thoracic, cervical, head and face regions. At the end of the treatment the frequency of headaches was reduced significantly to 1-2 times per week, with the duration of headaches limited to 10-15 minutes. In addition the overwhelming majority of these headaches (about 90%) were able to be relieved without recourse to medication. These improvements continued at least five months later.
