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.

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.
