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

Tonawanda chiropractic care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Tonawanda headache sufferers get headache relief with Tonawanda chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. Chiropractors many times identify 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 discovered that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also brought about 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation shares a new report 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Tonawanda migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Tonawanda chiropractic care plan.
