TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about 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
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation anticipates their outcomes 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 usual.
To find out if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who looked at a large number of published
studies proposed that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also stated that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used with
medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is
pleased to be a part of our Carrolltown
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 play a role in its relief. Researchers gathered
details from several 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 reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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.
