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

Williamson chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Williamson headache sufferers get headache relief with Williamson chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Apple Country Chiropractic because of headache. Headache patients comprise a large portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Apple Country Chiropractic. Chiropractors many times diagnose 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 helpful. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also brought about three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Apple Country Chiropractic 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 offered that the inflammation and a reduced immune system may play 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Williamson migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their Williamson chiropractic care plan.
