Migraine sufferers are not by
themselves. About 15% of US adults suffer
with migraine. More often, women more so than men are bothered by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Pflugerville Wellness Center is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center is happy to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Pflugerville chiropractic care.
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 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.
