than men are bothered by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers get relief. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is happy to contribute to the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Montreal chiropractic care.
TREATMENTS FOR MIGRAINE: MEDS & CHIROPRACTIC & MORE
What do migraine
sufferers do about 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 set of researchers has organized a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur
together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic anticipates their findings as they intend
to compare multimodal chiropractic care along with
usual care and usual care alone 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 seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel
of researchers who reviewed a large number of published
studies suggested that related
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used in addition to
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is
pleased to play a role in our Montreal
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 have 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 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic uses very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
