Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers don’t suffer alone. Approximately 15% of US adults experience migraine. More often, women more so than men are bothered by migraine. Women are more likely to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers find relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is delighted to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle Baton Rouge chiropractic care.

TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They use medications. Meds are first line treatment options, yet 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 since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation anticipates their discoveries as they intend to assess multimodal chiropractic care plus 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 seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who reviewed many published studies proposed that related symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They also stated that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is pleased to be a part of our Baton Rouge 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 ranged from 2 to 6 months. Preliminarily, spinal manipulation was found to be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation performs extremely gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
