Migraines and Loss of Productivity in US

Because of the common experience of headaches and the plethora of remedies, it's encouraging that the AHCPR (Agency for Health Care Policy and Research) is developing guidelines for the treatment of headaches (see July 3, 1995 issue of "DC"). The AHCPR treatment recommendations will be particularly interesting regarding migraines, the often severely debilitating condition that takes a significant toll on many people's productivity. While chiropractic patients speak of relief from common headaches and migraines with chiropractic care, the AHCPR panel will base their recommendations on the most scrupulously conducted headache research. Will any headache research of chiropractic patients meet their criteria?
