HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Baton Rouge headache sufferers get headache relief with Baton Rouge chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Spine & Sports Rehab Center because of headache. Headache patients make up a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Spine & Sports Rehab Center. Chiropractors many times diagnose and participate in interdisciplinary care of 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, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also brought about three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 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 said to be therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Baton Rouge migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Baton Rouge chiropractic care plan.
