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

Headaches and migraines are unwelcome visitors. Headache sufferers are usually very ready for 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic offers some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas especially for our Millville headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

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 ate a lower diet quality than that of women who experienced episodic migraine. (2) Another study was even more specific with the kind of diet helpful to migraine patients, specifically overweight folks. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was revealed to be episodic-migraine preventative. Effectiveness was observed within one month of the diet modification. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic is not urging that any of our patients try a particular diet now! If a Millville headache sufferer wishes to explore a new diet, Wilson Family Chiropractic is here to talk and decide which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

The same goes for vitamin D supplementation. Vitamin D deficiency has been found in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics of vitamin D have initiated a look at including it in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day reduced the frequency of migraine including the routine drug therapy. More study needs to be completed, but vitamin D supplementation appears promising. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic surveys the nutrition of each individual Millville chiropractic patient and suggests supplementation when applicable.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all types – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are common complaints brought to the Millville chiropractor. Research reported 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 beneficial for migraine headache. (4)
