TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

What do migraine sufferers do about 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 set up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa anticipates their findings 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 customary. To ascertain if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group of researchers who looked at a large number of published studies proposed that associated symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They also stated that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – particularly used with medication – should be lower if helpful.

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 ranged from 2 to 6 months. Preliminarily, spinal manipulation was found to be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa performs extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
