Migraine sufferers are not alone. Approximately 15% of US adults suffer
with migraine. More women
than men are troubled by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is happy to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Pensacola 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 now 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 go
together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center looks
forward to their findings as they intend
to assess 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 determine if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who looked at many published
studies proposed that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate 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 helpful. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is
happy to play a role in our Pensacola
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 play a role in its relief. Researchers amassed
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 reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center performs very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
