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 the age of 65. 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 using Cox® Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses this treatment protocol every day for neck and arm pain relief!

Brooks neck pain and headache may benefit from vitamin D deficiency adjustment.

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!
