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)

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.
