West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are never welcome. Headache sufferers are usually very open to tips on how to prevent them. Migraine (a primary headache) sufferers over the age of 50 find themselves part of a global community with migraine as a leading cause of disability. (1) Chiropractic Care has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our West Palm Beach headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet feeds the body and the mind. Researchers have described that migraine triggers come in many different forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet effectively helps control migraine. Further, and more specifically, women with chronic migraine had a poorer quality diet than that of women with episodic migraine. (2) A new study got even more specific with the type of diet beneficial to migraine patients, specifically those who are overweight. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be preventive of episodic migraines. Usefulness was observed within one month of the diet change. (3) Chiropractic Care is not telling that any of our patients try a particular diet now! If a West Palm Beach headache sufferer chooses to explore a new diet, Chiropractic Care is here to discuss and decide which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

The same goes for vitamin D supplementation. Vitamin D deficiency has been found in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant features of vitamin D have opened its supplementation to considered inclusion in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day reduced the frequency of migraine in addition to routine drug therapy. More study needs to be completed, but vitamin D supplementation seems promising. (1) Chiropractic Care studies the nutrition of each individual West Palm Beach chiropractic patient and suggests supplementation when appropriate.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all types – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are common complaints brought to the West Palm Beach chiropractor. Research stated that complementary and integrative medicine - nutrition, movement (yoga), manual therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage, biofeedback, meditation, and mind-body strategies – was beneficial. In particular, spinal manipulation, chiropractic care, some supplements, diet change and hydrotherapy are reported beneficial for migraine headache. (4)
