RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Minster chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as sufferers with neck pain accompanied
by headache or radicular arm pain say that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are recommended. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors revealed that approximately
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over 65 years of age. Of these adults, 45.5% experienced
neck pain. 31.3% experienced consequent
headache. Minster headache and neck pain
are issues for Minster older folks!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain assimilates
simply with other healthcare providers’ case. (2) The safe, gentle Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain via 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center uses this
treatment protocol every day for neck and arm pain relief!

Michael Johnson as he shared a patient whose neck pain and accompanying headache
were relieved with his chiropractic treatment plan utilizing
the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
Minster CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a global issue
estimated to affect 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well produce
or aggravate neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They write that fixing vitamin D deficiency is vital
in treating these conditions since it’s not too
costly and delivers good results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies done about
vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a link
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link being
that between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines,
may lessen the incidence of headache by taking vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D
level, and up it as necessary!
