Headaches have been declared the most common type of pain by the National Institute of Health. Some people deal with headaches on a daily basis, while others may experience them only once in a while. In the USA, approximately 12 people out of every 100 have migraines, and many more suffer from headaches. Every headache or migraine is as unique as the person suffering making these conditions extremely hard to care for, as what works for one person does not necessarily help the next person. Healthcare providers struggle with even making a proper diagnosis when their patients present with headache symptoms.
Headaches are the number 1 reason for missed days of work and school. When it comes to migraines, they are responsible for 113 lost days of work, $13 million in lost revenue from employers, and $50 million in healthcare costs every year. While headaches seem to be becoming more and more common in today’s fast-paced world, caring for them is becoming more and more difficult. However, one area of care sees great success.
Headaches Alleviated by Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
Using a particular method called NUCCA, I am able to help patients see relief from headaches and migraines. Many in case studies have seen their headaches lessen in degree and even go away completely. What is NUCCA?
NUCCA is a precise and gentle technique of adjusting the top bones in the neck. There is no popping or twisting the spine. The C1 and C2 bones are susceptible to misalignment because they have a great range of motion. A misalignment in this area hinders blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow. Communication to and from the brain and body may also be disrupted because the misalignment can place pressure on the brainstem. Once NUCCA is used to locate the specific misalignment and realign the bones, patients often report seeing fewer or even no more headaches.
