Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by
themselves. Around 15% of US adults suffer
with migraine. More often, women more so than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)

sufferers find relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle

TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They resort to 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 set
up a study of 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn looks
forward to their discoveries as they plan
to evaluate 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 usual.
To find out 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 related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – especially used in addition to
medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is
happy to play a role in our Ashburn
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic
may have a role in its relief. Researchers collected
details from lots of randomized control trials of spinal manipulation
for migraine relief. Treatment with spinal manipulation varied
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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn performs very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
