Migraine sufferers are not alone. Around 15% of US adults get migraine. More women
than men are bothered by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1)
Layden Chiropractic is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Layden Chiropractic is delighted to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Plainville chiropractic care.
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 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 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.
