Manahawkin Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

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 called 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.

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 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.
