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

Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not uncommon! Many Richmond headache sufferers get headache relief with Richmond chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Johnson Chiropractic with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a large part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Johnson Chiropractic. Chiropractors often diagnose and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite helpful. For the most benefit, a new study reported 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 resulted in three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Johnson Chiropractic shares a new report 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 diminished immune system may have 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 new study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Richmond migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status in addition to their Richmond chiropractic care plan.
