RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Plainville chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain accompanied
by headache or radicular arm pain say that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are recommended. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors found that almost
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over the
age of 65. Of these persons, 45.5% experienced
neck pain. 31.3% experienced accompanying
headache. Plainville neck pain and headache
are worries for Plainville seniors!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain incorporates
easily with care by other
healthcare providers. (2) The safe, gentle Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has demonstrated beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain through 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Layden Chiropractic offers this

Plainville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Consider Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a global issue
projected to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers describe that vitamin D deficiency may well produce
or aggravate neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They write that correcting vitamin D deficiency is vital
when treating these conditions since it’s not expensive and offers good results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies performed regarding
vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a connection
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link being
that between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines,
may lessen the frequency of headache by supplementing
with vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D
level, and increase it if necessary!
