RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Pflugerville chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain accompanied
by headache or radicular arm pain say that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are advocated. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors revealed that approximately
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over the
age of 65. Of these adults, 45.5% experienced
neck pain. 31.3% experienced accompanying
headache. Pflugerville headache and neck pain
are concerns for Pflugerville seniors!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain assimilates
easily with care by other
healthcare providers. (2) The gentle, safe Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain through 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center offers this
treatment protocol daily for neck and arm pain relief!

Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a global issue
estimated to impact 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 important
when treating these conditions since it is not expensive and offers good results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies done about
vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a link
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link being
that between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers indicate
that headache sufferers, especially those with migraines,
may lessen the frequency of headache by increasing vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D
level, and up it as necessary!
