Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are unwelcome visitors. Headache sufferers are typically very 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 foremost cause of disability. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offers some prevention tips and treatment relief suggestions especially for our Fort Wayne headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet nourishes the body and the mind. Researchers have discussed that migraine triggers come in many different forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet effectively helps handle migraine. Additionally, and more specifically, women with chronic migraine had a lower diet quality than that of women with episodic migraine. (2) A new 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is not telling that any of our patients begin a specific diet now! If a Fort Wayne headache sufferer wants to look into a new diet, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is here to discuss and determine which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.

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 qualities 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 including the routine drug therapy. More analysis needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation appears promising. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic surveys the nutrition of each individual Fort Wayne chiropractic patient and suggests supplementation when appropriate.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

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