Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is happy to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle Fernandina Beach chiropractic care.

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 recently trying complementary and integrative medicine. One research team has set up a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic anticipates their outcomes as they intend to assess multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic migraine.

MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES

Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual. To ascertain if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who looked at a large number of published studies proposed that associated symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They also said that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – particularly used in addition to medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is pleased to be a part of our Fernandina Beach migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic. 

CHIROPRACTIC APPROACH TO MIGRAINE

Chiropractic is recognized 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 collected 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic uses very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
