Sandy Springs Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are unwelcome visitors. Headache sufferers are usually very ready for tips on how to prevent them. Over 50 years of age, sufferers of migraine, a primary headache, find themselves members of a global community with migraine as a foremost cause of disability. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our Sandy Springs headache and migraine sufferers.


A healthy diet nourishes the body and the mind. Researchers have noticed that migraine triggers appear in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet effectively helps manage migraine. Additionally, and more expressly, women with chronic migraine consumed a lower diet quality than that of women who experienced episodic migraine. (2) A new study got even more specific with the type of diet beneficial to migraine patients, particularly those who are overweight. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be episodic-migraine preventative. Usefulness was observed within one month of the diet change. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center is not recommending that any of our patients begin a certain type of diet now! If a Sandy Springs headache sufferer wishes to explore a new diet, Cross Chiropractic Center is here to chat and decide which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.


In much the same way, vitamin D supplementation is presented. Vitamin D deficiency has been documented in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities of vitamin D have opened its supplementation to considered inclusion in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day reduced the frequency of migraine including the routine drug therapy. More analysis needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation seems promising. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center studies the nutrition of each individual Sandy Springs chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when applicable.


Headaches of all varieties – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are everyday complaints brought to the Sandy Springs chiropractor. Research reported that complementary and integrative medicine - nutrition, movement (yoga), manual therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage, biofeedback, meditation, and mind-body strategies – was helpful. In particular, spinal manipulation, chiropractic care, some supplements, diet change and hydrotherapy are reported beneficial for migraine headache. (4)
