RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Richmond chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain with headache or radicular arm pain say that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are advocated. (1) A new
study of 288 chiropractors found that approximately
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over 65 years of age. Of these adults, 45.5% had
neck pain. 31.3% experienced concomitant
headache. Richmond headache and neck pain
are worries for Richmond seniors!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain integrates
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 through 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Johnson Chiropractic uses this
treatment protocol daily for neck and arm pain relief!

Michael Johnson as he shared a neck pain and headache
sufferer who achieved relief with his chiropractic treatment plan using
the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Consider Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a global concern
estimated to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well produce
or exacerbate neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They write that fixing vitamin D deficiency is vital
when treating these conditions since it’s not too
costly and offers big results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies performed about
vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a connection
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the clearest link being
that between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, especially those with migraines,
may reduce the incidence of headache by supplementing
with vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D
level, and increase it if necessary!
