(1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite helpful. For the most benefit, a new study found 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 brought about 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines It has been proposed that the inflammation and a reduced 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 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% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Fort Wayne migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their Fort Wayne chiropractic care plan.
