RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Sitka chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain with headache or radicular arm pain say that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are advocated. (1) A new
study of 288 chiropractors revealed that nearly
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over the
age of 65. Of these adults, 45.5% had
neck pain. 31.3% had accompanying
headache. Sitka neck pain and headache
are issues for Sitka older folks!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain integrates
simply with care by other
healthcare providers. (2) The gentle, safe Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain through 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses this
treatment protocol daily for neck and arm pain relief!

Sitka CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Consider Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide concern
estimated to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers describe that vitamin D deficiency may well cause
or aggravate neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They write that correcting vitamin D deficiency is vital
in treating these conditions since it is not too
costly and delivers good results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies done about
vitamin D and headache showed that there is a connection
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the clearest link being
that between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, especially those with migraines,
may reduce the frequency of headache by taking vitamin D. (6) Simple! Check your vitamin D
level, and increase it as necessary!
