RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN AND HEADACHE IN OLDER FOLKS
Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for Toronto chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain accompanied
by headache or radicular arm pain say that chiropractic
manipulation and multimodal care are advocated. (1) A recent
study of 288 chiropractors revealed that almost
a third of their chiropractic patients are older adults over 65 years of age. Of these adults, 45.5% experienced
neck pain. 31.3% experienced concomitant
headache. Toronto neck pain and headache
are issues for Toronto older folks!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain assimilates
simply with other healthcare providers’ case. (2) The safe, gentle Cox® Technic
System of Spinal Pain Management has shown beneficial relief
of neck and arm pain through 15 treatments over 10 weeks
Technic and adjunctive modalities. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses this
treatment protocol every day for neck and arm pain relief!

Toronto CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Consider Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a global concern
estimated to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well trigger
or worsen neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They state that correcting vitamin D deficiency is important
when treating these conditions since it’s not too
costly and delivers big results in terms
of quality of care and cost. (5) A
further review of studies done regarding
vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a link
between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines,
may reduce the incidence of headache by supplementing
with vitamin D. (6) Simple! Check your vitamin D
level, and increase it as necessary!
