to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Moses Chiropractic is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Moses Chiropractic is delighted to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
West Palm Beach 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 while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set
up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Moses Chiropractic anticipates their discoveries as they plan
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 reviewed many published
studies suggested that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – especially used in addition to
medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Moses Chiropractic is
happy to be a part of our West Palm Beach
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 suggested that
musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers amassed
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 decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Moses Chiropractic uses very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
