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

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


Headaches are not unusual! Many Minster headache sufferers attain headache relief with Minster chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Minster Chiropractic Center because of headache. Headache patients make up a large portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Minster Chiropractic Center. Chiropractors often 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 effective. For the most benefit, a new study found that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Minster 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 has 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 new study writes 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) Minster migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their Minster chiropractic care plan.
