TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about their migraine? They use medications.
Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine
sufferers are now trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has set
up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office anticipates their outcomes as they plan
to compare 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 determine if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who reviewed many published
studies proposed that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – especially used with
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is
happy to be a part of our Groton
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 play a role in migraine, chiropractic
may have a role in its relief. Researchers amassed
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 decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
