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

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

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Watertown headache sufferers attain headache relief with Watertown chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Watertown Wellness Center because of headache. Headache patients account for a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Watertown Wellness Center. 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 helpful. For the most benefit, a new study discovered 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 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Watertown Wellness Center shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has been said that the inflammation and a reduced 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A recent study writes that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Watertown migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status alongside their Watertown chiropractic care plan.
