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

Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many Carrolltown headache sufferers get headache relief with Carrolltown chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation because of headache. Headache patients comprise a sizeable portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. Chiropractors often diagnose and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite successful. For the most benefit, a new study discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 offered that the inflammation and a reduced 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Carrolltown migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status in addition to their Carrolltown chiropractic care plan.
