Women tend to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic is not alone in the desire to help migraine sufferers get relief. Moriarty Chiropractic is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle Nashua 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 now trying 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 occur together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Moriarty Chiropractic anticipates their findings as they intend to assess multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic migraine.
MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES
Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual. To find out 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 with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic is pleased to be a part of our Nashua 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 play 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 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) Moriarty Chiropractic uses extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
