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

West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many West Palm Beach headache sufferers attain headache relief with West Palm Beach chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Moses Chiropractic with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a sizeable portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Moses Chiropractic. 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 successful. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Moses Chiropractic 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) West Palm Beach migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status in addition to their West Palm Beach chiropractic care plan.
