to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1)

sufferers get relief. Wilson Family Chiropractic is delighted to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Millville 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 while around 50% of migraine
sufferers are now using complementary and
integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set
up a study of the chiropractic care of migraine
since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go
together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through
Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic looks
forward to their discoveries as they plan
to compare multimodal chiropractic care along with
usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic
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 proposed that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be appropriate outcome
measures along with the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also said that the level of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used with
medication – should be lower if beneficial. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic is
pleased to play a role in our Millville
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may have 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 written to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic uses very
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to reduce pain and ease any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
