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

Tarrytown chiropractic care at Tarrytown Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many Tarrytown headache sufferers get headache relief with Tarrytown chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Tarrytown Chiropractic with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a large portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Tarrytown Chiropractic. Chiropractors often identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite successful. 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 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

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

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been offered 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Tarrytown migraine sufferers may try to enhance their Vitamin D status in addition to their Tarrytown chiropractic care plan.
