More about Dr. Flory

“I was a patient long before I was a doctor. In junior high school, I was hit by a car as a pedestrian. I had no emergent conditions threatening my life, but as a result my life changed dramatically.

“I began to have headaches just a few months after the accident, though neither I, nor my parents, attributed them to being hit. The headaches progressively got worse over the years. I tried general Chiropractic, medication, rest, etc., but nothing was solving the problem and the pain continued to intensify and be more frequent.”

“I was always a hard worker and a good student, so when the headaches became so bad that I began missing classes in college, I knew something had to be done. I decided I wasn’t going to live the rest of my life in a dark room hoping the pain would go away.”

“I heard about a doctor 6 hours away that did this really gentle procedure called NUCCA and that it helped with migraine headaches. No one knew about it, but I had to try something that I hadn’t already done. I went to see the NUCCA doctor, and he explained that because of a small misalignment to the top bone in my neck (the Atlas) I had pressure to my brainstem. He said the accident had allowed my Atlas to become misaligned and that he knew he could help.”

“Well, it helped! And because NUCCA helped me so much, I have devoted myself to taking care of others in the same way I was cared for. My promise to my patients is to give the best quality care.”
