Easley Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

April 07, 2020

Migraine sufferers don’t suffer alone. Approximately 15% of US adults suffer with migraine. More often, women more so than men are troubled by migraine. Women are more likely to suffer migraine three times as often as men do. (1) Young Chiropractic is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers get relief. Young Chiropractic is happy to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle Easley chiropractic care.


What do migraine sufferers do about their migraine? They turn to medications. Meds are first line treatment options while around 50% of migraine sufferers are now trying complementary and integrative medicine. One set of researchers has set up a research project studying the chiropractic care of migraine since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often go together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Young Chiropractic looks forward to their outcomes as they intend to assess multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic migraine.


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 reviewed a large number of published studies suggested that associated 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 – especially used in addition to medication – should be lower if helpful.

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 play a role in its relief. Researchers collected 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 written to be an effective therapeutic treatment to reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Young Chiropractic performs very gentle spinal manipulation from the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and alleviate any migraine-related musculoskeletal pain issues.
