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 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.
