Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by themselves. Approximately 15% of US adults get migraine. More often, women more so than men are bothered by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1) Spinal Care Clinic is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers get relief. Spinal Care Clinic is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care.

TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They turn to medications. Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine sufferers are recently using complementary and integrative medicine. One research team has set up a study of 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) Spinal Care Clinic anticipates their findings as they plan to assess multimodal chiropractic care plus usual care and usual care but itself 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 look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group of researchers who looked at a large number of published studies suggested that associated 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 – particularly used with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Spinal Care Clinic is pleased to play a role in our Burlington and Hamilton 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 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 reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Spinal Care Clinic performs very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
