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

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


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 because of headache. Headache patients make up a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Johnson Chiropractic. Chiropractors many times diagnose and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite helpful. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Johnson Chiropractic shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been offered 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Richmond migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their Richmond chiropractic care plan.
