Headache patients comprise a large portion of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC. Chiropractors often diagnose and participate in interdisciplinary care of headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite helpful. For the most benefit, a new study reported that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also resulted in 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC shares a new report that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been proposed 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) reduces the odds of having a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) La Grande migraine sufferers may try to enhance their Vitamin D status alongside their La Grande chiropractic care plan.
