sufferers get relief. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is delighted to be

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 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 TREATMENT OUTCOMES
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 APPROACH TO MIGRAINE
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 uses very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
