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

Eugene chiropractic care at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic may reduce headache days each month. 

 
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 headache patients 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)

Rethwill Chiropractic 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 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 try to improve their Vitamin D status alongside their Eugene chiropractic care plan.
