TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They resort 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 named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville looks
forward to their findings as they intend
to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care along with

MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES
Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual.
To ascertain if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel
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 in addition to 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 beneficial. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is
happy to play a role in our St. Francisville
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 play a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers collected
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 found to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
