HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Manchester headache sufferers attain headache relief with Manchester chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. Chiropractors many times identify 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, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries shares a new paper that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been proposed 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Manchester migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Manchester chiropractic care plan.
