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 now using complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre anticipates their outcomes as they intend
to assess multimodal chiropractic care along with
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 panel
of researchers who reviewed a large number of published
studies proposed that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate 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 beneficial. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is
pleased to be a part of our Toronto
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 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 decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
