Severna Park Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are never welcome. Headache sufferers are usually quite ready for tips on how to avoid them. Migraine (a primary headache) sufferers over the age of 50 find themselves part of a global community with migraine as a leading cause of disability. (1) Back And Neck Care Center offers some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our Severna Park headache and migraine sufferers.


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 handle migraine. Further, and more expressly, women with chronic migraine ate a lower diet quality than that of women who experienced episodic migraine. (2) A new study got even more specific with the type of diet helpful to migraine patients, particularly overweight folks. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be preventive of episodic migraines. Usefulness was noted within one month of the diet change. (3) Back And Neck Care Center is not telling that any of our patients start a certain type of diet now! If a Severna Park headache sufferer wishes to try a new diet, Back And Neck Care Center is here to discuss and determine which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.


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 qualities 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 in addition to routine drug therapy. More research needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation seems promising. (1) Back And Neck Care Center studies the nutrition of each individual Severna Park chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when applicable.


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