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

West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not uncommon! Many West Palm Beach headache sufferers attain headache relief with West Palm Beach chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Chiropractic Care because of headache. Headache patients make up a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Chiropractic Care. Chiropractors often diagnose and co-manage 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 found that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Chiropractic Care shares a new report that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has been proposed that the inflammation and a reduced 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) West Palm Beach migraine sufferers may try to enhance their Vitamin D status in addition to their West Palm Beach chiropractic care plan.
