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 using 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 occur together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center looks forward to their findings as they plan to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care alone 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 panel of researchers who looked at many published studies proposed that associated symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center is pleased to be a part of our Pflugerville 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 have a role in migraine, chiropractic may play a role in its relief. Researchers collected details from several 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center performs extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
