than men are bothered by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Soft Health and Healing Clinic is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Brooks 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 using complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a research project studying 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic anticipates their discoveries as they plan
to compare 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 group
of researchers who reviewed a large number of published
studies suggested that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome
measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also said that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used with
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is
happy to play a role in our Brooks
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 have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers amassed
details from lots of 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 reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
