Headaches are not uncommon! Many Lynchburg headache sufferers attain headache relief with Lynchburg chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Palmer Chiropractic Center with a complaint of headache. Headache patients account for a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Palmer Chiropractic Center. Chiropractors often diagnose and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite helpful. 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 resulted in three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Palmer Chiropractic 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 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 recent study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Lynchburg migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Lynchburg chiropractic care plan.
