There was a clinical study involving a 23-year-old woman with chronic migraines for ten years with accompanying neck pain and low back pain. She had previous medications that proved ineffective. Finally, she had upper cervical chiropractic care. As a result, she experienced a significant improvement in the severity and frequency of her migraines. Her quality of life improved.
NUCCA technique of upper cervical chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive, and effective alternative to taking medication. NUCCA chiropractors fix misalignments in the upper cervical spine, particularly concerning the C1 (atlas) and C2 (axis) vertebrae. If this occurs, wrong signals reach the brain, and disruption of proper vital fluids, blood, and cerebrospinal fluid happen. All of these lead to migraines and other health concerns.
NUCCA is very gentle and precise. Meaning the technique will not cause cracking, twisting, or popping of the neck or spine. Instead, the focus is on the upper cervical spine and addressing the issues. As a result, the misaligned bones move back to their original positions gently. Once precisely corrected, patients can start to feel better and improve their daily lives through the NUCCA technique.
