Easley chiropractic care at Young Chiropractic may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not uncommon! Many Easley headache sufferers attain headache relief with Easley chiropractic care. One in 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Young Chiropractic with a complaint of headache. Headache patients comprise a significant portion of the chiropractic practice, and that’s true for Young Chiropractic. Chiropractors often identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite successful. For the most benefit, a new study discovered that 18 SMT visits compared with 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, lowering cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in three more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Young Chiropractic 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 said 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 reportedly therapeutic. (3) A new 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) Easley migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their Easley chiropractic care plan.
