Craniosacral Therapy in Migraine: A Feasibility Study

The purpose of this study is to gather preliminary data on the usefulness of CST for patients with migraine and to determine the feasibility of a larger, randomized clinical trial of CST in patients with migraine. It is estimated that more than 2 million visits to CST practitioners are made each year, with more than 10 per cent of those for the complaint of headache. Our limited preliminary data show significant, sustained benefit of CST in a small group of patients with migraine.

Study Start Date: September 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
