McHenry CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide issue
estimated to impact 30% to 50% of the population.
(4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well produce
or exacerbate neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm.
They write that correcting vitamin D deficiency is important
when treating these conditions since it is not expensive and delivers good 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 clearest link was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest
that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines,
may lessen the incidence of headache by supplementing
with vitamin D. (6) Simple! Test your vitamin D
level, and up it if necessary!
