Montreal 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 as a leading cause of disability. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our Montreal headache and migraine sufferers.


A healthy diet feeds the body and the mind. Researchers have noticed that migraine triggers appear 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 had 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 overweight folks. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was revealed to be episodic-migraine preventative. Usefulness was noted within one month of the diet change. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is not suggesting that any of our patients try a certain type of diet now! If a Montreal headache sufferer chooses to try a new diet, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here to talk and decide which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.


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 features 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 including the routine drug therapy. More research needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation appears encouraging. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic studies the nutrition of each individual Montreal chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when applicable.


Headaches of all varieties – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are frequent complaints brought to the Montreal 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)
