Migraine sufferers don’t suffer alone. About 15% of US adults experience migraine. More women
than men are troubled by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Palmer Chiropractic Center is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Palmer Chiropractic Center is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Lynchburg chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about their migraine? They resort to medications.
Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are now trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a research project studying 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center looks
forward to their discoveries 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 determine if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel
of researchers who looked at a large number of published
studies suggested that related
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 helpful. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center is
pleased to be a part of our Lynchburg
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 play a role in its relief. Researchers gathered
details from several 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) Palmer 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.
