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.

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.

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.
