NUCCA and Headaches

NUCCA and Headaches

Existing research literature supports the idea that tension and cervicogenic headaches may originate in the upper cervical spine. As a result, a retrospective investigation to discover if NUCCA could help improve pain levels, posture, and quality of life for headache sufferers.
Let us look into the details of this study.


Study Methods
Of the original 239 study patients, 47 patients, average age 41.4 years, qualified for a retrospective analysis. Patients suffered headache symptoms for over 9.3 years on average. Patient evaluation followed NUCCA protocol, and included a supine leg check, followed by a posture evaluation. Radiographic assessment and analysis were used to determine the exact nature of the misalignment (Atlas Subluxation Complex or ASC) and a means to correct it.

NUCCA Assessment
NUUCA assessments significantly improved during study period. Post-correction apparent leg length inequality was reduced to almost zero in all subjects. Pelvic tilt was significantly reduced. Following the NUCCA protocol, 80% or better correction of Atlas laterality occurred. Several patients required only one NUCCA correction.

Study Conclusions

The NUCCA assessments used in the Atlas correction procedure improved significantly. Patients reported noteworthy improvement in pain symptoms with improved quality of life after NUCCA care.
