HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Headaches are not unusual! Many
West Des Moines headache sufferers get headache relief with
West Des Moines chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new
chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa with a complaint of headache. Headache
patients comprise a sizeable portion
of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Executive Chiropractic of Iowa.
Chiropractors often identify and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients
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 discovered that 18 SMT
visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most
effective, decreasing cervicogenic headache days by 50%.
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’s been said
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 said to be therapeutic.
(3) A new study writes that higher
levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases
the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) West Des Moines migraine
sufferers may want to consider improving their
Vitamin D status in addition to their West Des Moines
chiropractic care plan.
