Migraine sufferers are not by
themselves. Approximately 15% of US adults get migraine. More often, women more so than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1)
Apple Country Chiropractic is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Apple Country Chiropractic is happy to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Williamson chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They turn to medications.
Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are now using complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Apple Country Chiropractic looks
forward to their discoveries 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 find out 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 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 degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used in addition to
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic is
pleased to be a part of our Williamson
migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic.
CHIROPRACTIC APPROACH TO MIGRAINE
Chiropractic is recognized for its approach to
musculoskeletal pain and its relief. Since research suggested that
musculoskeletal tension may play 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 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) Apple Country Chiropractic performs very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
