November 2018 Healthy News: Chiropractic for Headache & Vitamin D for Migraine

Preston chiropractic care at Chiropractic Associates may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Preston headache sufferers get headache relief with Preston chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Chiropractic Associates because of headache. Headache patients make up a sizeable portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Chiropractic Associates. Chiropractors many times identify and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite effective. For the most benefit, a new study discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Chiropractic Associates shares a new paper that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been proposed that the inflammation and a diminished immune system may have a role in migraine headache. The role of nutrients – vitamin D, vitamin B12, alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, and riboflavin - in the supportive care of migraines is reportedly therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Preston migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Preston chiropractic care plan.
