HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Pensacola headache sufferers attain headache relief with Pensacola chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a sizeable part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. Chiropractors many times 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 effective. For the most benefit, a new study found 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 produced three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center shares a new report that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been proposed 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Pensacola migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Pensacola chiropractic care plan.
