Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are unwelcome visitors. Headache sufferers are typically quite ready for tips on how to prevent them. Migraine (a primary headache) sufferers over the age of 50 find themselves members of a global community with migraine being a leading cause of disability. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our Fernandina Beach headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet feeds the body and the mind. Researchers have noticed that migraine triggers come in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet successfully helps control migraine. Further, and more expressly, women with chronic migraine had a poorer quality diet than that of women with episodic migraine. (2) Another study was even more specific with the kind of diet beneficial to migraine patients, particularly those who are overweight. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be episodic-migraine preventative. Usefulness was observed within one month of the diet modification. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is not recommending that any of our patients try a certain type of diet now! If a Fernandina Beach headache sufferer chooses to look into a new diet, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is here to discuss and decide which diet (if any special one) is proper.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

In much the same way, vitamin D supplementation is presented. Vitamin D deficiency has been reported in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics 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 reduced the frequency of migraine in addition to routine drug therapy. More study needs to be completed, but vitamin D supplementation seems encouraging. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic surveys the nutrition of each individual Fernandina Beach chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when appropriate.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all types – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are common complaints brought to the Fernandina Beach 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 helpful for migraine headache. (4)
