Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers are not by themselves. Around 15% of US adults experience migraine. More women than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers find relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle Colorado 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 using complementary and integrative medicine. One research team has organized a study of the chiropractic care of migraine since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR anticipates their outcomes as they intend 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 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 in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They also stated that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used with medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is pleased to be a part of our Colorado 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 play a role in migraine, chiropractic may play 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 found to be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
