themselves. Approximately 15% of US adults suffer
with migraine. More women
than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1)
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers find relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is happy to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Fort Wayne chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about their migraine? They resort to medications.
Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are now using complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set
up a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc anticipates their findings 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 customary.
To determine 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 suggested that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – especially used in addition to
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is
pleased to be a part of our Fort Wayne
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 suggested 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 written to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc performs very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
