Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Oxford chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain with headache or radicular arm pain state that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are recommended. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors found that nearly
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over 65 years of age. Of these persons, 45.5% experienced
neck pain. 31.3% experienced accompanying
headache. Oxford headache and neck pain
are worries for Oxford seniors!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain incorporates

Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Consider Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide concern
estimated to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well cause
or worsen neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They state that fixing vitamin D deficiency is important
in treating these conditions since it’s not expensive and offers big results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies performed about
vitamin D and headache showed that there is a connection
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the clearest link was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers indicate
that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines,
may reduce the incidence of headache by supplementing
with vitamin D. (6) Simple! Check your vitamin D
level, and up it as necessary!
