to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)

sufferers get relief. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is delighted to be

TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They turn to 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 study of the chiropractic care of migraine
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation looks
forward to their discoveries as they plan
to assess multimodal chiropractic care along with
usual care and usual care but itself 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 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 with
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is
pleased to be a part of our Tonawanda
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers gathered
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 found to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation performs very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
