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

Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not uncommon! Many Baton Rouge headache sufferers attain headache relief with Baton Rouge chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. Chiropractors often diagnose 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 discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 proposed 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 writes that higher 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) Baton Rouge migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Baton Rouge chiropractic care plan.
