Canadian Headache Society Guideline for Migraine Prophylaxis: Supplement 2
Objectives: The primary objective of this guideline is to assist the practitioner in choosing an appropriate prophylactic medication for an individual with migraine, based on current evidence in the
Outcome measures for assessing the effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions in frequent episodic or chronic migraine: a Delphi study
TLDR
Recommendations are for the use of the MIDAS, the HIT-6 and headache frequency, in combination with an outcome measure for quality of life, and the cut-off level for effectiveness should be lower for non-pharmacological interventions, especially when used as an adjunct to medication.
Review of Treatment Strategies for Successful Migraine Management Focus on Efficacy and Safety of Triptans
TLDR
An overview of the pharmacological agents used in migraine management, including the recommendations from the U.S. Headache Consortium, is provided with a focus on the use and safety of the triptans in the acute management of migraine attacks.
The Role of the Patient in Maximizing Efficacy of Drug Therapy in Migraine
TLDR
The role of the patient is to conduct a personal evaluation as to the effects of the headache and to learn about what is known of the causes, triggers and management options in migraine, to feel empowered enough to consult a primary care physician and, if necessary, a neurologist when the debilitating effect of the syndrome is recognized.
A Narrative Review of Evidence-Based Preventive Options for Chronic Migraine
TLDR
A number of non-medication treatment options including occipital nerve and supraorbital nerve stimulation have shown promise as effective prevention for patients either unable to tolerate or unable to obtain relief from oral medications, but more research is necessary.
Behavioral treatment of migraine: current status and future directions

    Expert review of neurotherapeutics

The empirical support for three behavioral treatments (relaxation, biofeedback and cognitive therapy) for managing migraine headaches in children and adults is reviewed. Meta-analyses and
Systematic review of randomized clinical trials of complementary/alternative therapies in the treatment of tension-type and cervicogenic headache.
TLDR
RCTs for CAM therapies of the treatment of non-migrainous headache exist in the literature and demonstrate that clinical experimental studies of these forms of headache can be conducted.
Efficacy of interventions used by physiotherapists for patients with headache and migraine—systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
A statistically significant reduction in the intensity, frequency and duration of migraine, TTH and CGH is suggested and methodologically sound, randomized controlled trials with adequate sample sizes are required to provide information on whether and which physiotherapy approach is effective.

Objectives: To examine the importance of good communication when informing the patient of the diagnosis of migraine; to review the essentials of successful communication between physician and patient
The Effectiveness of Spinal Manipulation for the Treatment of Headache Disorders: A Systematic Review of Randomized Clinical Trials
  • J. Astin, E. Ernst
  • Medicine
    Cephalalgia : an international journal of headache
  • 2002
TLDR
Despite claims that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for headache, the data available to date do not support such definitive conclusions and it is unclear to what extent the observed treatment effects can be explained by manipulation or by nonspecific factors.

Guidelines for the diagnosis and management of migraine in clinical practice
TLDR
These guidelines are based on consensus of Canadian experts in neurology, emergency medicine, psychiatry, psychology, family medicine and pharmacology, and consumers and are likely to lead to substantial benefits in both human and economic terms.
Nonpharmacological approaches in the management of recurrent headache disorders and their comparison and combination with pharmacotherapy
TLDR
The evidence support the value of approaches based on relaxation, biofeedback, and coping skills training for recurrent headache disorders, and the relative benefits, costs, and limitations of combining nonpharmacological and pharmacological treatments remain largely unknown.
Psychosocial interventions in the management of recurrent headache disorders. 1: Overview and effectiveness.
TLDR
An overview of the commonly employed nonpharmacologic therapies for recurrent headache is provided, scientific evidence of their efficacy is reviewed, and the psychosocial interventions that have the greatest potential to enhance the management of recurrent migraine and tension-type headache in primary care settings internationally are identified.
The effectiveness of chiropractic manipulation in the treatment of headache: an exploration in the literature.
  • H. Vernon
  • Medicine

  • 1995
TLDR
A modest body of clinical studies exists dealing with the effect of manipulation and headache, and the overall results are encouraging, even if not quite supportive in the case of tension-type headache.
Pharmacological versus non-pharmacological prophylaxis of recurrent migraine headache: a meta-analytic review of clinical trials
TLDR
Substantial empirical support is revealed for the effectiveness of both propranolol and relaxation/biofeedback training, but there is no support for the contention that the two treatments differ in effectiveness.
Cold as an adjunctive therapy for headache.
TLDR
It is indicated that cold application does provide some symptomatic relief of headache; it may also offer psychological alleviation of the pain.
Why does migraine improve during a clinical trial? Further results from a trial of cervical manipulation for migraine.
TLDR
There was some evidence to suggest that placebo influences made a slight contribution to improvement, with sex, social class and subjects' optimism about the therapist at the initial treatment being weakly associated with initial improvement.
Acupuncture versus metoprolol in migraine prophylaxis: a randomized trial of trigger point inactivation.
TLDR
Trigger point inactivation by dry needling is a valuable supplement to the list of migraine prophylactic tools, being equipotent to metoprolol in the influence on frequency and duration (but not severity) of attacks, and superior in terms of negative side-effects.
Prophylaxis of Migraine with Oral Magnesium: Results From A Prospective, Multi-Center, Placebo-Controlled and Double-Blind Randomized Study
TLDR
High-dose oral magnesium appears to be effective in migraine prophylaxis and duration and intensity of attacks and the drug consumption per attack tended to decrease compared to placebo but failed to be significant.
High-Dose Riboflavin as a Prophylactic Treatment of Migraine: Results of an Open Pilot Study
TLDR
High-dose riboflavin could be an effective, low-cost prophylactic treatment of migraine devoid of short-term side effects and a placebo-controlled trial of its efficacy seems worthwhile.
