McHenry Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers don’t suffer alone. Around 15% of US adults suffer with migraine. More often, women more so than men are bothered by migraine. Women tend to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1) Spengel Chiropractic is not alone in the desire to help migraine sufferers find relief. Spengel Chiropractic is happy to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle McHenry 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 while around 50% of migraine sufferers are recently trying complementary and integrative medicine. One set of researchers has organized a study of the chiropractic care of migraine as migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Spengel Chiropractic looks forward to their outcomes as they plan to evaluate 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 group of researchers who looked at a large number of published studies proposed that related symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They also stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – particularly used with medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Spengel Chiropractic is pleased to be a part of our McHenry 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 have a role in migraine, chiropractic may have 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 written to be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Spengel Chiropractic performs very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
