TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They turn to medications. Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine sufferers are recently trying complementary and integrative medicine. One research team has organized a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic anticipates their discoveries 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 seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who looked at many published studies suggested that related symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They also said that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used in addition to medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is happy to play a role in our Eugene 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 stated that musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic may play a role in its relief. Researchers collected 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 written to be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
