Migraine sufferers don’t suffer alone. Around 15% of US adults suffer
with migraine. More women
than men are bothered by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1)
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Manahawkin chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They use medications.
Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has organized a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go
together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center looks
forward to their outcomes as they intend
to compare 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 reviewed a large number of 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is
happy to play a role in our Manahawkin
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 have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may have 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
