Tonawanda Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are never welcome. Headache sufferers are typically very ready for tips on how to prevent them. Migraine (a primary headache) sufferers over the age of 50 find themselves members of a global community with migraine being a foremost cause of disability. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has some prevention tips and treatment relief suggestions especially for our Tonawanda headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet nourishes the body and the mind. Researchers have noted that migraine triggers appear in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet effectively helps control migraine. Additionally, and more expressly, women with chronic migraine consumed a lower diet quality than that of women who experienced episodic migraine. (2) A new study was even more specific with the kind 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. Effectiveness was noted within one month of the diet modification. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is not telling that any of our patients begin a particular diet now! If a Tonawanda headache sufferer wants to explore a new diet, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is here to talk and decide which diet (if any special one) is proper.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

In much the same way, vitamin D supplementation is presented. Vitamin D deficiency has been documented in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant features of vitamin D have initiated a look at including it in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day decreased the frequency of migraine in addition to routine drug therapy. More study needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation appears encouraging. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation surveys the nutrition of each individual Tonawanda chiropractic patient and suggests supplementation when appropriate.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all sorts – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are frequent complaints brought to the Tonawanda 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 helpful. More specifically, spinal manipulation, chiropractic care, some supplements, diet change and hydrotherapy are reported beneficial for migraine headache. (4)
