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 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 written to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease 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.
