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.

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.

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.
