TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They use medications. Meds are first line treatment options, yet 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 go together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic anticipates their discoveries as they intend to assess multimodal chiropractic care plus usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic migraine.

MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES

Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual. To find out if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A group of researchers who reviewed many published studies proposed 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 – particularly used in addition to medication – should be lower if beneficial.

CHIROPRACTIC APPROACH TO MIGRAINE

Chiropractic is recognized 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 ranged from 2 to 6 months. Preliminarily, spinal manipulation was found to be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic 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.
