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

Malverne chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not unusual! Many Malverne headache sufferers get headache relief with Malverne chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Malverne Health & Wellness with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a sizeable part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Malverne Health & Wellness. Chiropractors often 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 discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Malverne Health & Wellness 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 said 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A new 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% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Malverne migraine sufferers may try to improve their Vitamin D status in addition to their Malverne chiropractic care plan.
