Vancouver Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers are not alone. About 15% of US adults experience migraine. More often, women more so than men are troubled by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers get relief. Vancouver Disc Centers is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle Vancouver chiropractic care.

TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE

How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They resort to medications. Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine sufferers are now trying complementary and integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Vancouver Disc Centers anticipates their discoveries as they intend to compare multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care but itself 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 group of researchers who looked at a large number of published studies suggested that related symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – particularly used with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers is happy to be a part of our Vancouver 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 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 reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers 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.
