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

Pflugerville chiropractic care at Pflugerville Wellness Center may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Pflugerville headache sufferers get headache relief with Pflugerville chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Pflugerville Wellness Center with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a large portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Pflugerville Wellness Center. Chiropractors often identify and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite successful. For the most benefit, a new study discovered 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 brought about 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 reduced 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 better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Pflugerville migraine sufferers may try to enhance their Vitamin D status in addition to their Pflugerville chiropractic care plan.
