Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by
themselves. About 15% of US adults experience migraine. More women
than men are bothered by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers find relief. 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 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.
