themselves. About 15% of US adults experience migraine. More women
than men are bothered by migraine. Women tend
to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1)
The Novelli Wellness Center is not alone in wanting to help migraine
sufferers get relief. The Novelli Wellness Center is happy to be
a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle
Buffalo, NY 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 recently using complementary and
integrative medicine. One research team 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) The Novelli Wellness Center looks
forward to their outcomes as they intend
to assess 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 usual.
To ascertain if an intervention is “clinically
meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A group
of researchers who looked at many published
studies suggested that associated
symptoms and fear of attacks would also be good outcome
measures in addition to the 50% reduction in migraines. They
also said that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological
interventions – particularly used in addition to
medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) The Novelli Wellness Center is
happy to play a role in our Buffalo, NY
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 stated that
musculoskeletal tension may have a role in migraine, chiropractic
may play a role in its relief. Researchers gathered
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 found to
be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days
and migraine intensity and pain. (3) The Novelli Wellness Center performs extremely
gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management to relieve pain and alleviate any
migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
