to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)

sufferers find relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is delighted to be

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 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.
