RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Vancouver chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain with headache or radicular arm pain state that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are recommended. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors found that almost
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over the
age of 65. 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. (2) The safe, gentle Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain via 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses this
treatment protocol every day 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.
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!
