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

Augusta chiropractic care at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many Augusta headache sufferers attain headache relief with Augusta chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic with a complaint of headache. Headache patients comprise a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic. Chiropractors often identify and co-manage 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 discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic shares a new study 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 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 seemingly 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) Augusta migraine sufferers may try to enhance their Vitamin D status in addition to their Augusta chiropractic care plan.
