TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about 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
as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC looks
forward to their findings as they plan
to evaluate 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 customary.
To determine if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel
of researchers who looked at many published
studies proposed that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures in addition to 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 beneficial. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is
happy to play a role in our La Grande
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may have a role in its relief. Researchers amassed
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 reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
