HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
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)

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.
