Easley Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

September 17, 2019

Headaches and migraines are unwelcome visitors. Headache sufferers are typically quite open to tips on how to avoid them. Migraine (a primary headache) sufferers over the age of 50 find themselves members of a global community with migraine being a foremost cause of disability. (1) Young Chiropractic offers some prevention tips and treatment relief suggestions especially for our Easley headache and migraine sufferers.


A healthy diet feeds the body and the mind. Researchers have discussed that migraine triggers come in many different forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet successfully helps control migraine. Further, and more expressly, women with chronic migraine consumed a lower diet quality than that of women with episodic migraine. (2) Another study got even more specific with the kind of diet beneficial to migraine patients, particularly overweight folks. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was revealed to be episodic-migraine preventative. Usefulness was noted within one month of the diet modification. (3) Young Chiropractic is not recommending that any of our patients try a particular diet now! If a Easley headache sufferer wants to try a new diet, Young Chiropractic is here to talk and determine which diet (if any special one) is proper.


The same goes for vitamin D supplementation. Vitamin D deficiency has been documented in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities of vitamin D have opened its supplementation to considered inclusion in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day decreased the frequency of migraine in addition to routine drug therapy. More study needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation appears encouraging. (1) Young Chiropractic explores the nutrition of each individual Easley chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when applicable.


Headaches of all types – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are common complaints brought to the Easley chiropractor. Research stated that complementary and integrative medicine - nutrition, movement (yoga), manual therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage, biofeedback, meditation, and mind-body strategies – was helpful. In particular, spinal manipulation, chiropractic care, some supplements, diet change and hydrotherapy are reported helpful for migraine headache. (4)
