Murfreesboro Migraine Sufferers May Find Exercise and Chiropractic Help

Migraine is a frustrating condition for its sufferers. It is costly in terms of pain, money, and pharmacological use need. Drugs are still the “gold standard” of care. Patients often ask their migraine healthcare providers for non-drug alternatives. Murfreesboro migraine sufferers want choices! Most Chiropractic Clinic puts forward that exercise may be one such beneficial option.

EXERCISE FOR CHRONIC PAIN

Migraine is, for most Murfreesboro migraine sufferers, a chronic pain condition. It’s not typically a one time condition. Chronic pain disrupts the nervous system as well as the specific pain-generator. Researchers explained evidence that exercise helps a variety of chronic pain conditions including migraine directly and indirectly with an aim to change the cycle of pain, sedentariness, and worsening disability. These changes don’t come overnight. They come with long-term, consistent, individualized exercise resulting in improvement in pain and function. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic reminds our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients with all sorts of conditions that it’s slow and steady commitment that gets the result.

EXERCISE FOR MIGRAINE BEING STUDIED

Researchers and migraine sufferers alike hold out hope for an easy, low-cost approach to migraine care. For example, a new comparison project of neck-specific exercise versus sham ultrasound to decrease the frequency and intensity of migraine attacks. (2) A recent meta-analysis in Headache stated that aerobic exercise for migraine patients dropped the number of migraine days. (3) These are valuable outcomes for Murfreesboro migraine treatment.

EXERCISE BENEFITS: Overall and Migraine Specific

Murfreesboro chiropractic patients are manytimes urged to exercise. Exercise seems like a endorsed panacea for everything from back pain to migraine to depression to neck pain and so much more. Why? It works. Exercise stifles inflammation via reduction of inflammatory modulators (many cytokines) and stress hormones (growth hormone and cortisol). Exercise constructively impacts the microvascular system that possibly affects a certain type of cortical spreading depression. Specific to migraine, exercise benefited migraine self-efficacy by permitting the migraine sufferer to have a sense of control which reduced migraine burden. How much exercise produces this type of effect? “Sufficiently rigorous aerobic exercise” brought about statistically significant reduction in migraine frequency, intensity and duration. That’s appreciated by Murfreesboro migraine sufferers! Naturally, higher intensity exercise seems to allow more benefit. Pharmacological drugs like topiramate were noted to be better than exercise, but adding exercise to its use was implied as being beneficial. Migraine sufferers who also experience neck pain or tension headache are reported to benefit from exercise. Low impact is valuable if high impact exercise is not possible. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic concurs with the researchers’ outcome: exercise is a practical evidence-based recommendation for migraine prevention.
