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

Headaches and migraines are never welcome. Headache sufferers are typically very open to tips on how to prevent them. Over 50 years of age, sufferers of migraine, a primary headache, find themselves members of a global community with migraine as a leading cause of disability. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our Murfreesboro headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet feeds the body and the mind. Researchers have described that migraine triggers come in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet successfully helps manage migraine. Additionally, and more specifically, women with chronic migraine consumed a poorer quality diet than that of women who had episodic migraine. (2) Another study got even more specific with the kind of diet helpful to migraine patients, particularly those who are overweight. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be episodic-migraine preventative. Effectiveness was noted within one month of the diet change. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic is not urging that any of our patients try a specific diet now! If a Murfreesboro headache sufferer wishes to look into a new diet, Most Chiropractic Clinic is here to chat and decide which diet (if any special one) is proper.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

The same goes for vitamin D supplementation. 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 decreased the frequency of migraine in addition to routine drug therapy. More study needs to be completed, but vitamin D supplementation seems encouraging. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic explores the nutrition of each individual Murfreesboro chiropractic patient and suggests supplementation when appropriate.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all sorts – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are everyday complaints brought to the Murfreesboro 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 beneficial. More specifically, spinal manipulation, chiropractic care, some supplements, diet change and hydrotherapy are reported helpful for migraine headache. (4)
