RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Vancouver chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as sufferers with neck pain with headache or radicular arm pain state that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are recommended. (1) A new
study of 288 chiropractors revealed that nearly
a third of their chiropractic patients are senior adults over 65 years of age. Of these persons, 45.5% had
neck pain. 31.3% had consequent
headache. Vancouver neck pain and headache
are issues for Vancouver seniors!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain assimilates
simply with care by other
healthcare providers. (2) The safe, gentle Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain via 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers offers this
treatment protocol every day for neck and arm pain relief!

Michael Johnson as he presented a patient whose neck pain and accompanying headache

the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide issue
projected to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well cause
or aggravate neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They state that fixing vitamin D deficiency is vital
in treating these conditions since it’s not too
costly and offers good results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) Another review of studies done regarding
vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a link
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link was 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 up it as necessary!
