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

Colorado Springs chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not unusual! Many Colorado Springs headache sufferers attain headache relief with Colorado Springs chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. Chiropractors many times identify and participate in interdisciplinary care of 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, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also brought about three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares a new paper that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has been offered 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Colorado Springs migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status alongside their Colorado Springs chiropractic care plan.
