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

New Roads chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many New Roads headache sufferers get headache relief with New Roads chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like New Roads Chiropractic Center because of headache. Headache patients comprise a sizeable part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for New Roads Chiropractic Center. 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 reported that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

New Roads Chiropractic Center shares a new paper that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been said 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A new study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) New Roads migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status alongside their New Roads chiropractic care plan.
