West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Look at Vitamin D for Headache and Neck Pain

Vitamin D deficiency is a global issue estimated to impact 30% to 50% of the population. (4) Researchers report that vitamin D deficiency may well cause or worsen neck pain, back pain, and muscle spasm. They state that fixing vitamin D deficiency is important when treating these conditions since it is not too costly and offers big results in terms of quality of care and cost. (5) A further review of studies performed about vitamin D and headache showed that there is a connection between vitamin D levels and headaches (the clearest link was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers indicate that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines, may reduce the incidence of headache by taking vitamin D. (6) Simple! Check your vitamin D level, and up it if necessary!
