HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Headaches are not uncommon! Many
Eugene headache sufferers attain headache relief with
Eugene chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new
chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic because of headache. Headache
patients make up a sizeable portion
of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic.
Chiropractors often diagnose and co-manage
with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for
cervicogenic headache is written to be quite successful.
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)

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines
It has been offered
that the inflammation and a reduced 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 recent study reports 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) Eugene migraine
sufferers may want to consider enhancing their
Vitamin D status alongside their Eugene
chiropractic care plan.
