Migraine: New NUCCA Research

Chronic Migraine: Significant Improvement with NUCCA

New research shows that patients suffering from chronic migraines find relief with a specialized form of chiropractic care. The technique utilized in the migraine study was NUCCA, a unique upper cervical technique that our doctors practice.

All Patients have been Diagnosed by a Neurologist

The patients in the study had never received any form of upper cervical chiropractic care before. Also, all patients will need to be diagnosed by a neurologist. On average, patients in the study experienced fewer headache days per month after only 2 months of NUCCA care. In addition, patients’ quality of life improved not only physically but emotionally. Migraines not only affect the patient, but the entire family.

NUCCA is a unique form of upper cervical chiropractic that restores body balance by using a very specific gentle touch on your neck behind your ear. NUCCA is extremely precise, and is unlike any other kind of spinal care or chiropractic you may have received in the past.

How You Can Get Help Too
