Lynchburg Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

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.

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.
