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.

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.
