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)

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.
