TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They turn to medications.
Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries anticipates their findings as they intend
to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care plus
usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic
MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES
Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary.
To determine 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 suggested that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used with
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is
happy to be a part of our Manchester
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 suggested that
musculoskeletal tension may have 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 varied
from 2 to 6 months. Preliminarily, spinal manipulation was written to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries performs extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
