San Jose Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are never welcome. Headache sufferers are usually quite open to 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 as a leading cause of disability. (1) Chiropractic Solutions has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas especially for our San Jose headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet nourishes the body and the mind. Researchers have discussed that migraine triggers come in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet successfully helps control migraine. Further, and more specifically, women with chronic migraine consumed a poorer quality diet than that of women who experienced episodic migraine. (2) A new study got even more specific with the kind of diet helpful to migraine patients, specifically those who are overweight. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be preventive of episodic migraines. Effectiveness was noted within one month of the diet change. (3) Chiropractic Solutions is not telling that any of our patients try a certain type of diet now! If a San Jose headache sufferer chooses to explore a new diet, Chiropractic Solutions is here to chat 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 documented 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 decreased the frequency of migraine in addition to routine drug therapy. More analysis needs to be completed, but vitamin D supplementation appears promising. (1) Chiropractic Solutions surveys the nutrition of each individual San Jose chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when applicable.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all sorts – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are everyday complaints brought to the San Jose chiropractor. Research stated 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)
