Brain-Body Connection – NUCCA Chiropractic

The Brain-Body Connection NUCCA Chiropractic The Brain-Body Connection is a term that I first used at the Yardley Institute in Kent, Washington. This term describes a crucial area of our body that controls a tremendous amount of our health.  You could have an issue in this area, not know it, and it could be causing some or all of your health conditions. Yes, that's a bold statement. I promise if you have been through what I've been through, and have seen what I've seen with my patients, you would believe it. As NUCCA Chiropractors and Upper Cervical Chiropractors in general we adjust the upper neck. Put your finger right below your ear and behind your jaw, that's the upper neck. Because of accidents and falls in our lives, we often injure the upper neck. Think about how many car accidents you've had. Think about that fall when you were a kid. Think about that stupid thing you did as a teenager.  Any past injury to your upper neck, if left uncorrected, causes dysfunction of your body. Whether you can feel it immediately or not. Over time, your body gets more and more unhealthy, until one day you have a symptom. If your symptoms and health conditions are caused by a past injury to your upper neck, and you never get it corrected. You will deal with those problems negatively affecting everything in your life, for the rest of your life.

What Treatments Are Available for Migraines in Edmonds WA?

Four pharmaceutical companies are trying to launch the first drug that will be able to prevent people suffering from migraines in an attempt to cash in on what's thought to be a market worth $4-$8 billion. But does a miracle drug really exist and are there any other treatments that can alleviate pain? It's believed that nearly half the global population (46%) suffer from headaches in some form and that in the US, 10% of people are affected by the condition (1,2). Migraines can have a debilitating effect on patients and tend to affect women twice as often as men. The condition can alter mood and concentration and has caused problems both at work and in social areas of life. Most people rely on general prescription drugs and over-the-counter relief such as Ibuprofen. Others try to modify their lifestyle choices, perhaps following a different diet, getting more sleep, or doing more exercise.

However, preliminary results have been somewhat disappointing showing the drug to be less than 50% effective and in some cases only 20% effective. As such, many migraine sufferers are still keen to look for more natural and successful treatments. Thankfully, there are also doctors who want to help. Here at Progressive Chiropractic, we treat many patients with migraines in a gentle and natural way. Using the NUCCA technique, we focus on the atlas bone (C1 vertebra) which is the first cervical vertebra of the spine. When [...]

Meniere’s Disease – What’s the Best Treatment?

US clinicians have launched a new trial to help those who suffer from Meniere’s Disease - a disorder that affects the inner ear and can cause nausea together with a loss of hearing and balance. The condition is caused by problems with the fluid in the inner ear and the vestibulocochlear nerve, meaning the brain finds it difficult to determine where the body is spatially. Currently, there are no FDA-approved medications for the disorder, which is thought to affect more than 600,000 people in the US. However, doctors can prescribe steroidal injections to help relieve pain, but the relief only lasts for around 10-15 minutes and requires an invasive injection into the ear. The new trial will instead rely on injecting a gel into the ear that slowly releases a steroid over the course of three months. To learn more about the connection between head and neck injuries and vertigo download our complimentary e-book by clicking the image below: However, due to the invasive nature of steroid injections, which can have limited effects, many patients favor a more natural treatment approach. At Progressive Chiropractic, we treat patients without surgery and help them live a normal life. Our method treats the upper neck, offering help to suffers of the disorder through NUCCA spinal care, which focuses on the atlas (C1) vertebrae at the top of the neck. Research has shown a correlation between the atlas bone, the inner ear, and the vestibulocochlear nerve. A study of 139 Meniere’s patients who received upper cervical chiropractic revealed a dramatic relief of symptoms. All the patients had previously suffered a neck injury - ranging in seriousness from a minor fall to major car accident. On average, the disability level [...]

Menopausal Migraines in Edmonds, WA

The transition through menopause typically involves hot flashes, insomnia, and night sweats. What many don't know is that chronic migraines can also appear with the onset of menopause. Chronic migraines (10 or more migraine episodes per month) are common in women who are approaching menopause. It is often seen in women between 42-47, approximately 5 years before the onset of menopause. (1) It is thought that these migraines are due to hormonal fluctuation, leading to dilation of blood vessels in the brain; however, the cause of these irregular hormones is currently unknown. Current management of these migraines is through an estrogen patch or birth control pills. While these can be potentially effective in the short term, they do not examine a possible root cause of these hormonal migraines. To learn more about the connection between head and neck injuries and migraines download our complimentary e-book by clicking the image below: Migraines and Your Spine Your spine helps to protect your spinal cord. Your spinal cord carries signals to and from your brain. When the top bone in your neck (atlas) is misaligned, this can create pressure within your spinal cord. This can distort messages going to and from your brain, potentially leading to facial pain, muscle spasm, and other migraine symptoms. I am trained in NUCCA, a specific chiropractic procedure aimed at detecting and reducing atlas misalignments. NUCCA involves a gentle chiropractic adjustment with no twisting, popping, or cracking. Through realigning the spine, the pressure in the spinal cord is reduced. This can potentially lead to a reduction of migraine systems. Verderame et al. reported a case of a 75-year-old woman with chronic migraine headaches since she was a teenager. She initially utilized pain medication [...]

Migraines: Your Safe Alternative to Medication

Did you know that 1 in 8 people experiences migraines? That makes safe and effective treatment an important topic. They have a high cost to the sufferer, and not just in terms of discomfort. Relationships may also suffer as well as the ability to work. Common treatment approaches deal with mitigating symptoms rather than providing an actual cure. Unfortunately, some of those treatments are actually perpetuating the issue. What Is a Rebound Headache? Also called a medication overuse headache, rebound headaches are caused by the very pain relievers used to treat them. This can occur when pain medication needs to be taken 3 or more times per week. The cause of your migraines could be linked to a slip, fall, accident or injury in your past.  Is there something like that in your past that is significant enough that you still remember it today?  That may very well have caused the suffering you're experiencing today.  To learn more about the connection between mild and severe head and neck injuries and migraines, download our complimentary e-book by clicking the image below: Breaking Cycle of Migraines Are you looking for a natural alternative to get rid of your migraines? One that won’t cause more head pain as a side effect? At Progressive Chiropractic, we use the NUCCA technique to attack migraines at their source… the neck. Surprisingly to many, migraines are often caused by a misalignment of the upper neck bone in relation to the head. This is because the top bone (Atlas) is situated at the base of the skull where the brain comes out of the head and goes into the neck near the brainstem. Even a slight misalignment can place pressure on the brainstem and [...]

Natural Vertigo Treatment in Edmonds, Washington

Is it Dizziness or Vertigo? This is a good question to answer before seeking treatment. As many as 6% of doctor’s visits are the result of dizziness. This a very common condition and affects 2 in 5  people after the age of 40. It becomes even more common as we get into our later years. Dizziness can range from a brief episode to a chronic condition. Symptoms of dizziness include: Lightheadedness Loss of balance How Is Vertigo Different? Vertigo is a false feeling that the room is spinning (or perhaps that the individual is spinning). Additional symptoms include: Nausea and vomiting Balance issues Nystagmus Vestibular system problems are often to blame for both vertigo and dizziness, further blurring the lines between the conditions. The vestibular system includes the inner ear as well as nerves that connect the ear to the brainstem and cerebellum to receive and translate signals. To learn more about the connection between head and neck injuries and vertigo download our complimentary e-book by clicking the image below: How Your Neck Is Involved The atlas and axis vertebrae at the top of the neck protect the brainstem. A misalignment here can result in symptoms like dizziness or vertigo. Such misalignments can occur in an accident or injury, even if the injury does not seem that severe. One study involved 60 patients who were experiencing vertigo. In the study, nearly the entire group saw either complete relief or at least great improvement in their symptoms. At Progressive Chiropractic, we use the NUCCA method to realign upper cervical misalignments and provide natural treatment of vertigo for our patients. References: Tucci DL.
