Augusta Chiropractic Care to Help Relieve Migraine Pain

April 07, 2020

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


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 now trying complementary and integrative medicine. One set of researchers has organized a study of the chiropractic care of migraine since migraine and musculoskeletal tension and pain often occur together. They named their study the “Integrative Migraine Pain Alleviation through Chiropractic Therapy (IMPACT).” (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic looks forward to their outcomes as they intend to compare multimodal chiropractic care along with usual care and usual care alone for adult women with episodic migraine.


Non-pharmacological interventions for migraine are customary. To find out if an intervention is “clinically meaningful,” researchers look for a 50% reduction in headaches. A group of researchers who reviewed 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 helpful. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is happy to be a part of our Augusta 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 stated that musculoskeletal tension may play a role in migraine, chiropractic may play a role in its relief. Researchers amassed 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 written to be an effective therapeutic treatment to decrease migraine days and migraine intensity and pain. (3) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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.
