HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
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)

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.
