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

Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Vancouver headache sufferers get headache relief with Vancouver chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Vancouver Spine Care Centre because of headache. Headache patients account for a sizeable part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Vancouver Spine Care Centre. Chiropractors often identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite successful. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Vancouver Spine Care Centre shares a new paper that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been said that the inflammation and a diminished immune system may play 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A new study writes 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) Vancouver migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status alongside their Vancouver chiropractic care plan.
