Best practice recommendations based on best available
scientific evidence for West Des Moines chiropractic patients with
uncomplicated neck pain as well as those with neck pain with 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% had consequent
headache. West Des Moines headache and neck pain
are concerns for West Des Moines older folks!
Fortunately, chiropractic care for these older adults living with neck pain assimilates

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!
