West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers are not alone. About 15% of US adults get migraine. More women than men are bothered by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1) Chiropractic Care is not alone in the desire to help migraine sufferers find relief. Chiropractic Care is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle West Palm Beach chiropractic care.

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 now 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 go together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Chiropractic Care anticipates their outcomes as they plan to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic migraine.

MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES

Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual. To determine if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who looked at many published studies proposed that related symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They also stated that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used in addition to medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Chiropractic Care is pleased to play a role in our West Palm Beach 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 have 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 reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Chiropractic Care 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.
