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
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)

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 want to consider improving their
Vitamin D status alongside their Vancouver
chiropractic care plan.
