HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Headaches are not uncommon! Many
McHenry headache sufferers get headache relief with
McHenry chiropractic care. One in 5 new
chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic because of headache. Headache
patients comprise a sizeable portion
of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.
Chiropractors often identify and co-manage
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 found that 18 SMT
visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most
effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by 50%.
Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in 3 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 reduced 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 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% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) McHenry migraine
sufferers may try to enhance their
Vitamin D status alongside their McHenry
chiropractic care plan.
