No More Advil! 92% of Headache Sufferers Find Help with Upper Cervical!

Is That Advil Really Helping You?

While there are many different causes of headaches, there has never been a documented case where the underlying cause was Advil deficiency! Advil, aspirin, Tylenol and others are only masking your symptoms while the underlying cause continues to worsen. While we have seen amazing results in our own patients. There is also a growing body of research that shows that upper cervical specific chiropractic is very effective at helping people with a variety of different headaches.

Reports documenting successful treatment of patients with headaches using upper cervical chiropractic care are many. Including seeing positive results where the headaches were improved or eliminated in approximately 1000 headache patients from the Palmer research clinic.

Other Studies…

“Based on Literature Review of Several Headache Treatment Options, a Panel of 19 Multidisciplinary Experts Concluded That Spinal adjustments resulted in almost immediate improvement for cervicogenic headaches and had significantly fewer side effects and longer lasting relief of tension type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.” [McCrory DC, et al. “Evidence Report: Behavioral and Physical Treatments for Tension type and Cervicogenic Headache.” Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center, Durham, North Carolina, January 2001.]

1296 Less Headaches!!

In another study by Dr. Erin Elster, 101 chronic headache cases were examined. The 30 days prior to starting care in Dr. Elster’s office, the 101 patients had a total of 1407 headaches! Or, approximately 14 headaches per month per person. All 101 patients began upper cervical chiropractic care. The 30 days following the conclusion of their upper cervical chiropractic care program, the 101 patients had a total of 111 headaches (or approximately one headache per patient per month on average).

That is a 92% reduction in headache frequency! Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is extremely effective in correcting the underlying cause of a variety of different headaches.

NUCCA Chiropractic Care

What is NUCCA
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) is an organization of Doctors of Chiropractic dedicated to patient care, education and research.

Spinal health care using the NUCCA procedures focuses on detecting and correcting a small misalignment in the upper neck area. Gentle, non-invasive adjustments don’t require any turning, twisting or popping.

Your upper cervical spine (neck) area influences all areas of your body. Injury or chronic misalignments can cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, low back pain, weakness and more.

The NUCCA technique is currently offered by less than 1% of all the Doctors of Chiropractic.

Before the NUCCA procedure can be performed, I will sit down with you and discuss your history and symptoms. If I determine that NUCCA can help, a thorough examination and x-rays will be done. A complete report of your findings and treatment options will be discussed. 

First adjustment
Precision x-rays are taken of the spine before any treatment begins. The adjustment is performed with the patient lying on their side and the doctor applying a very light pressure behind the earlobe. A full demonstration can be seen on the video above.

The NUCCA procedure can be summed up with 5 major distinctions as compared to traditional Chiropractic:

  • Gentle adjustment to the neck with no turning, twisting or popping.
  • Precision x-rays to measure before and after corrections.
  • Total body posture and balance improvement
  • Greater stability to the spine
  • Hold adjustments longer with fewer visits
