Helping my wife with her migraines was one of the biggest reasons why I started to learn and practice the NUCCA technique.
Migraine Relief with NUCCA Chiropractic Care
When I first met her, she was having 2-3 migraines per week.
When she was getting adjusted with traditional techniques she saw some improvements but was still having 1-2 per week. When I found out about NUCCA, I had her get adjusted and she immediately started to notice changes. She wasn’t having the migraines at all. She went a couple months without having a single one. As she continued to get care she would only get a migraine when she either didn’t drink enough water or get a good meal for the day.
Part of this has to do with the the anatomy of the Atlas area that NUCCA focuses on. Not only is this area where the brain turns into spinal cord, but the the vertebral artery, the primary artery to the brain, is also here. With a slight rotation of the Atlas relative to the skull and lower neck that vertebral artery can have reduced blood flow. Research is showing that this might result in headaches among other health complications.
