Augusta CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a global issue projected 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 important when treating these conditions since it is not expensive and delivers big 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 was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines, may lessen the incidence of headache by increasing vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D level, and up it as necessary!
