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

Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many Largo headache sufferers get headache relief with Largo chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Hollstrom & Associates Inc with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Hollstrom & Associates Inc. Chiropractors many times 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 discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Hollstrom & Associates Inc shares a new report 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 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 reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Largo migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status alongside their Largo chiropractic care plan.
