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

Oxford chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Oxford headache sufferers get headache relief with Oxford chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Satterwhite Chiropractic because of headache. Headache patients make up a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Satterwhite Chiropractic. Chiropractors often identify and co-manage 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 reported that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 offered that the inflammation and a diminished 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 recent study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Oxford migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status alongside their Oxford chiropractic care plan.
