Brooks Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers are not alone. Around 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) 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.

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.
