HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Headaches are not uncommon! Many
Ashburn headache sufferers get headache relief with
Ashburn chiropractic care. One in 5 new
chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn with a complaint of headache. Headache
patients account for a large portion
of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn.
Chiropractors many times diagnose and co-manage
with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for
cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite successful.
For the most benefit, a new study reported 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 created 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines
It’s been offered
that the inflammation and a reduced immune system may have
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 reports that higher
levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases
the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as
opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Ashburn migraine
sufferers may want to consider enhancing their
Vitamin D status in addition to their Ashburn
chiropractic care plan.
