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

Sandy Springs chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many Sandy Springs headache sufferers get headache relief with Sandy Springs chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Cross Chiropractic Center with a complaint of headache. Headache patients comprise a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Cross Chiropractic Center. Chiropractors many times diagnose 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 reported that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Cross Chiropractic Center shares a new report that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has been offered that the inflammation and a reduced 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 reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Sandy Springs migraine sufferers may try to enhance their Vitamin D status in addition to their Sandy Springs chiropractic care plan.
