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

Groton chiropractic care at Hutter Chiropractic Office may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not uncommon! Many Groton headache sufferers get headache relief with Groton chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Hutter Chiropractic Office because of headache. Headache patients make up a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Hutter Chiropractic Office. Chiropractors often diagnose and co-manage 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 in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Hutter Chiropractic Office shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has been proposed 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A new study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Groton migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their Groton chiropractic care plan.
