Migraine sufferers are not by
themselves. Approximately 15% of US adults suffer
with 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)
Back And Neck Care Center is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Back And Neck Care Center is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Severna Park chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about their migraine? They resort to medications.
Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set
up a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Back And Neck Care Center looks
forward to their outcomes as they intend
to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care along with
usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic
MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES
Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary.
To ascertain if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who reviewed 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 stated that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – especially used with
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Back And Neck Care Center is
happy to play a role in our Severna Park
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may have a role in its relief. Researchers amassed
details from lots of 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) Back And Neck Care Center performs extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
