RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Brooks 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 advocated. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors found that nearly
a third of their chiropractic patients are senior adults over 65 years of age. Of these adults, 45.5% had
neck pain. 31.3% experienced concomitant
headache. Brooks neck pain and headache
are issues for Brooks older folks!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain assimilates
simply with care by other
healthcare providers. (2) The gentle, safe Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain through 15 treatments in 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses this
treatment protocol every day for neck and arm pain relief!
Listen to this PODCAST
with chiropractic back pain specialist, Dr. David Kulla on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr.
Michael Johnson as he presented a patient whose neck pain and accompanying headache
were relieved with his chiropractic treatment plan using
the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide issue
projected to affect 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers describe that vitamin D deficiency may well trigger
or worsen neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They write that fixing vitamin D deficiency is vital
in treating these conditions since it’s not too
costly and delivers good results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) Another review of studies performed about
vitamin D and headache showed that there is a link
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines,
may reduce the incidence of headache by taking vitamin D. (6) Simple! Check your vitamin D
level, and increase it as necessary!
