The Headache Problem

Many people not only suffer with headaches on a regular basis, but they also struggle with understanding what causes them in the first place. For most people, the NUCCA approach to structural correction in the upper neck is the answer they wish they had come across long ago.

People are tired of taking medication over and over again to get some relief from the headache pain, only to get another headache just a couple days later and have to repeat the same routine. Medication as we all know does not correct the cause of the headache. It just masks the pain you feel, sometimes better than others. For many, medication loses its effectiveness over time, resulting in taking higher and higher doses of the medication. This is dangerous for the long term. Unfortunately, masking the pain just allows for ongoing suffering.

What if there was actually a solution to most types of headaches?

The NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) technique gently and precisely corrects the alignment¬†of the top bone (the atlas vertebra)¬†of the spine. The location of the atlas is where the head and neck join together. This 2-ounce bone surrounds a key part of the central nervous system, the point at which the brain ends and the spinal cord begins. Displacement of the atlas vertebra results in improper nerve communication between the brain and the rest of the body. Mechanical strain at this location is thought to be a very common cause of many types of headaches, especially those called “cervicogenic (from the neck) headaches.”

NUCCA Chiropractors focus on precise correction and stabilization of the structural shift of the atlas. This realignment technique restores the nerve communication over the central nervous system, which allows the body to regain function naturally and heal as it is designed.
