Richmond Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by themselves. Approximately 15% of US adults suffer with migraine. More women than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1) Johnson Chiropractic is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers find relief. Johnson Chiropractic is delighted to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle Richmond 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, yet 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 as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Johnson Chiropractic anticipates their outcomes 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 customary. To determine if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who reviewed many 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 said that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – particularly used in addition to medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Johnson Chiropractic is pleased to be a part of our Richmond 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 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 varied 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) Johnson Chiropractic uses extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
