HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
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 diagnose 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)

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 higher
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.
