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

Toronto chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not unusual! Many Toronto headache sufferers get headache relief with Toronto chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre with a complaint of headache. Headache patients make up a sizeable portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Chiropractors often identify and participate in interdisciplinary care of 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 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)

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre shares a new report 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 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 recent study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Toronto migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status in addition to their Toronto chiropractic care plan.
