Of these persons, 45.5% experienced neck pain. 31.3% had accompanying headache. Vancouver neck pain and headache are issues for Vancouver older folks! Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain integrates easily with care by other healthcare providers.

Vancouver neck pain and headache may benefit from vitamin D deficiency adjustment.

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide concern estimated to affect 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 state that fixing vitamin D deficiency is vital when treating these conditions since it’s not too costly and delivers good results in terms of quality of care and cost. (5) Another review of studies performed regarding vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a connection between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link being that between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest that headache sufferers, especially those with migraines, may lessen the frequency of headache by supplementing with vitamin D. (6) Simple! Check your vitamin D level, and increase it if necessary!
