TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They turn to medications. Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine sufferers are recently trying complementary and integrative medicine. One set of researchers has organized a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Layden Chiropractic anticipates their findings as they plan to compare 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 ascertain if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group of researchers who looked at many published studies proposed that related 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 – particularly used in addition to medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Layden Chiropractic is happy to play a role in our Plainville 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 have a role in its relief. Researchers gathered details from several randomized control trials of spinal manipulation for migraine relief. Treatment with spinal manipulation varied 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) Layden Chiropractic uses very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
