Paramus Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

Migraine sufferers don’t suffer alone. About 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 more often as men do. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is not alone in the desire to help migraine sufferers get relief. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is delighted to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle Paramus chiropractic care.


How do migraine sufferers deal with 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 organized a study of 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center anticipates their outcomes as they intend to evaluate multimodal chiropractic care plus usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic migraine.


Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary. To find out if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group of researchers who reviewed a large number of published studies proposed that associated symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used with medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is happy to be a part of our Paramus migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic. 


Chiropractic is known for its approach to musculoskeletal pain and its relief. Since research suggested that musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic may have a role in its relief. Researchers gathered details from several randomized control trials of spinal manipulation for migraine relief. Treatment with spinal manipulation varied 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center performs very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to relieve pain and ease any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
