West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are never welcome. Headache sufferers are usually quite open to tips on how to avoid them. Over 50 years of age, sufferers of migraine, a primary headache, find themselves members of a global community with migraine being a foremost cause of disability. (1) Moses Chiropractic offers some prevention tips and treatment relief suggestions just for our West Palm Beach headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet nourishes the body and the mind. Researchers have discussed that migraine triggers appear in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet effectively helps handle migraine. Further, and more expressly, women with chronic migraine consumed a poorer quality diet than that of women who experienced episodic migraine. (2) Another study got even more specific with the kind of diet beneficial to migraine patients, specifically overweight folks. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was revealed to be preventive of episodic migraines. Effectiveness was noted within one month of the diet change. (3) Moses Chiropractic is not telling that any of our patients begin a certain type of diet now! If a West Palm Beach headache sufferer wishes to try a new diet, Moses Chiropractic is here to discuss and determine which diet (if any special one) is proper.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

The same goes for vitamin D supplementation. Vitamin D deficiency has been documented in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics of vitamin D have opened its supplementation to considered inclusion in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day reduced the frequency of migraine including the routine drug therapy. More analysis needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation seems encouraging. (1) Moses Chiropractic explores the nutrition of each individual West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach chiropractor. Research reported 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 helpful for migraine headache. (4)
