Richmond neck pain and headache may gain value from vitamin D deficiency adjustment.

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!
