Migraine sufferers don’t suffer by
themselves. Around 15% of US adults experience migraine. More women
than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Hollstrom & Associates Inc is not alone in the desire to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is happy to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Largo chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They turn to medications.
Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine
sufferers are recently trying complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team has organized a research project studying 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc looks
forward to their findings as they intend
to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care plus
usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic
MIGRAINE TREATMENT OUTCOMES
Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are usual.
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 in addition to 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc is
pleased to be a part of our Largo
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 gathered
details from lots of 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
