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

Plainville chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Plainville headache sufferers get headache relief with Plainville chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Layden Chiropractic because of headache. Headache patients comprise a sizeable part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Layden Chiropractic. Chiropractors often identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite successful. For the most benefit, a new study reported that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Layden Chiropractic shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been said that the inflammation and a reduced 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 said to be 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) Plainville migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status in addition to their Plainville chiropractic care plan.
