Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

April 07, 2020

Migraine sufferers are not by themselves. Around 15% of US adults get migraine. More often, women more so than men are troubled by migraine. Women are more likely to suffer migraine three times more often as men do. (1) New Hampshire Spine and Sport is not alone in wanting to help migraine sufferers find relief. New Hampshire Spine and Sport is happy to be a part of the migraine relief effort with its gentle Southern New Hampshire chiropractic care.


How do migraine sufferers deal with their migraine? They turn to medications. Meds are first line treatment options, yet around 50% of migraine sufferers are now 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 go together. They called their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) New Hampshire Spine and Sport anticipates their outcomes as they intend to assess multimodal chiropractic care plus usual care and usual care but itself for adult women with episodic migraine.


Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary. To determine if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers seek a 50% reduction in headaches. A panel of researchers who reviewed many 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 stated that the degree of effectiveness for non-pharmacological interventions – especially used in addition to medication – should be lower if helpful. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport is happy to be a part of our Southern New Hampshire migraine sufferers’ healthcare team for migraine relief. The 50% Rule has governed the outcomes of Cox Technic. 


Chiropractic is recognized 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 collected 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 reduce migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) New Hampshire Spine and Sport 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.
