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

Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
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)

Spinal Care Clinic 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 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.
