Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

April 07, 2020

Migraine sufferers are not alone. About 15% of US adults experience 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 delighted to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle Fort Wayne chiropractic care.


What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They turn to medications. Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine sufferers are recently trying complementary and integrative medicine. One research team has set up a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc looks forward to their outcomes as they plan to compare multimodal chiropractic care plus usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic migraine.


Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual. To find out if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who looked at many published studies suggested 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 degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is happy to play a role in our Fort Wayne migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic. 


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 play a role in its relief. Researchers collected details from several 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 decrease migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc performs extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
