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)

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines
It’s been proposed
that the inflammation and a reduced 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.
