NUCCA and Fibromyalgia
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) is striving to help more people learn about the benefits of upper cervical chiropractic. While the practice has been in place for over 4 decades, helping people to better their health and balance their body naturally, many still are unaware of NUCCA and the valuable service that NUCCA Doctors provide around the world. What is upper cervical chiropractic, and what do NUCCA and fibromyalgia have to do with each other? Read on to learn about NUCCA, fibromyalgia’s worst enemy, so you can decide if it is the right option for you.
The upper cervical spine, or upper neck, consists of the C1 and C2 vertebrae. These are the top two vertebrae in the spine, and they are positioned just as the base of the brain stem. Because of the sensitive location of these two vertebrae, the alignment (or misalignment) of these two vertebrae can greatly impact overall health. The upper neck impacts how both the brain stem and the central nervous system operate. The list of things that are controlled by this part of the body is lengthy. Just a few things are as follows:
- Hormone regulation
- Cognitive thinking
This is just a short list of bodily processes that are affected by the upper neck. Anything from a car accident, domestic violence, a fall, a sports injury or any other trauma to your head and neck could have caused the misalignment, and symptoms may not have shown themselves immediately, making it difficult to trace the cause back to the neck injury. In some cases the misalignment may have been due to a difficult delivery at birth.
It’s no wonder then that many fibromyalgia sufferers can provide testimonials as to how upper cervical chiropractic has benefited their condition. Besides just real life examples, however, there is also research that backs up the connection between NUCCA and fibromyalgia relief. One study involving 23 patients showed that symptoms were reduced by more than 90 percent after receiving upper cervical chiropractic care.
NUCCA provides a natural way to relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Unlike medication that may temporarily mitigate symptoms while causing numerous side effects, upper cervical chiropractic has no unwanted side effects. Your first visit involves a patient history, a physical exam, and possibly some x-rays to determine the best plan of action. Adjustments are non-invasive.
