San Jose Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers are not alone. About 15% of US adults get migraine. More women than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1) Chiropractic Solutions is not alone in the desire to help migraine sufferers get relief. Chiropractic Solutions is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle San Jose chiropractic care.


How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They resort to medications. Meds are first line treatment options while 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 as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Chiropractic Solutions anticipates their discoveries as they plan to compare multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic migraine.


Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary. To find out if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who reviewed many published studies suggested that related symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used in addition to medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Chiropractic Solutions is pleased to be a part of our San Jose migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic. 


Chiropractic is recognized for its approach to musculoskeletal pain and its relief. Since research stated that musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic may have a role in its relief. Researchers gathered details from lots of randomized control trials of spinal manipulation for migraine relief. Treatment with spinal manipulation ranged from 2 to 6 months. Preliminarily, spinal manipulation was found to be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Chiropractic Solutions performs very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
