Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by
themselves. Around 15% of US adults suffer
with migraine. More women
than men are bothered by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Cross Chiropractic Center is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Cross Chiropractic Center is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Sandy Springs chiropractic care.
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 research team has set
up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Cross Chiropractic Center looks
forward to their findings as they intend
to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care plus
usual care and usual care alone 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 seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who looked at a large number of 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 stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – especially used in addition to
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center is
pleased to play a role in our Sandy Springs
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 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 found to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center uses very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
