Headache patients comprise a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for New Hampshire Spine and Sport. Chiropractors many times identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite successful. For the most benefit, a new study found 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 brought about three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

New Hampshire Spine and Sport shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A new study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) lessens the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Southern New Hampshire migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status in addition to their Southern New Hampshire chiropractic care plan.
