Sitka neck pain and headache may gain value from vitamin D deficiency adjustment.


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!
