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

Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Disc Centers may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Vancouver headache sufferers attain headache relief with Vancouver chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Vancouver Disc Centers because of headache. Headache patients account for a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Vancouver Disc Centers. 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 effective. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Vancouver Disc Centers 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 proposed 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 recent study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Vancouver migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status alongside their Vancouver chiropractic care plan.
