Headaches are not uncommon! Many Paramus headache sufferers get headache relief with Paramus chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center because of headache. Headache patients make up a sizeable portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. 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 helpful. For the most benefit, a new study reported that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by 50%. Compared with slight massage, SMT also created three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation 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 offered that the inflammation and a diminished 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A new study writes that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Paramus migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status in addition to their Paramus chiropractic care plan.
