TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They use medications.
Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently using complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has organized a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center looks
forward to their discoveries as they intend
to evaluate 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 usual.
To determine if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who looked at many published
studies proposed that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome
measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used in addition to
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is
pleased to be a part of our Baton Rouge
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers collected
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 written to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center performs extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
