Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. may reduce headache days each month. 

 
HEADACHES AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Headaches are not unusual! Many Auburn headache sufferers get headache relief with Auburn chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients come to a chiropractor’s office like Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. with a complaint of headache. Headache patients comprise a sizeable part of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.. Chiropractors many times identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is reported to be quite helpful. For the most benefit, a new study reported 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 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares a new report that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It has been proposed that the inflammation and a diminished 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 seemingly therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) reduces the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Auburn migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status alongside their Auburn chiropractic care plan.
