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 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.
