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

Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not unusual! Many Brooks headache sufferers get headache relief with Brooks chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Soft Health and Healing Clinic with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Soft Health and Healing Clinic. Chiropractors many times identify and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite helpful. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Soft Health and Healing Clinic shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been proposed that the inflammation and a diminished immune system may play 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A recent study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Brooks migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Brooks chiropractic care plan.
