HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Headaches are not uncommon! Many
Burlington and Hamilton headache sufferers attain headache relief with
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new
chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like
Spinal Care Clinic with a complaint of headache. Headache
patients account for a significant portion
of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Spinal Care Clinic.
Chiropractors often 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 in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most
effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half.
Compared with slight massage, SMT also created 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

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 reportedly therapeutic.
(3) A new study writes 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) Burlington and Hamilton migraine
sufferers may want to consider improving their
Vitamin D status in addition to their Burlington and Hamilton
chiropractic care plan.
