TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about their migraine? They use medications.
Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic anticipates their findings as they intend
to compare multimodal chiropractic care plus
usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic
MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES
Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary.
To ascertain if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who reviewed a large number of published
studies suggested that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also said that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used in addition to
medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic is
pleased to be a part of our Murfreesboro
migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic.
CHIROPRACTIC APPROACH TO MIGRAINE
Chiropractic is known for its approach to
musculoskeletal pain and its relief. Since research suggested that
musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers collected
details from several randomized control trials of spinal manipulation
for migraine relief. Treatment with spinal manipulation varied
from 2 to 6 months. Preliminarily, spinal manipulation was written to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
