Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by
themselves. Approximately 15% of US adults get migraine. More women
than men are troubled by migraine. Women are more likely
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Malverne Health & Wellness is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Malverne Health & Wellness is delighted to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Malverne 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 while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently using complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set
up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Malverne Health & Wellness looks
forward to their outcomes 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 ascertain if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
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 level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used with
medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness is
happy to play a role in our Malverne
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers collected
details from lots of 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) Malverne Health & Wellness performs extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
