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 about 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 taking vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D level, and increase it as necessary!
