TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
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 TREATMENT OUTCOMES
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 APPROACH TO MIGRAINE
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.
