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

Sitka chiropractic care at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not unusual! Many Sitka headache sufferers get headache relief with Sitka chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. 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 found that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka 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 offered that the inflammation and a diminished 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A new study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Sitka migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status alongside their Sitka chiropractic care plan.
