I began to suffer from migraines when I was a full-time university student 4 years ago. I had always had sinus problems and been sensitive to weather changes (the “human barometer” was my nickname), but never had a problem with migraines before then. When the migraines began, I was in the habit of carrying about 30 lbs of books with me wherever I’d go and I now realize that I used to study with my head cocked to one side.

The migraines grew in intensity and frequency until I was having up to two each week. They would immobilize me for 24 hours at a time and made it impossible to remain a full-time student. I was skeptical of trying chiropractic treatment for them, as I had been under the care of a traditional chiropractor for a year before the migraines began and it gave me no relief. When I tried prescription medication, I found that they either did not work or the side effects were as bad as the migraine! I finally got to a point where I was ready to give N.U.C.C.A. a chance.

It took about 6-8 months before I could hold my alignment for more than 2-3 days at a time, but when I was aligned, my sinuses were clear and I would not have migraines. Over that 6-8 month period, the migraines grew fewer and further between. Now I have been under N.U.C.C.A. care for two and a half years and I have only had 5 or 6 migraines over the past two years. Had I continued on the path I was on before N.U.C.C.A. that 5 or 6 would have been in the hundreds!

I truly believe that it’s N.U.C.C.A. that has made all the difference in my headaches. I changed nothing else in my life at the time I started under care here, and whenever I have an adjustment (usually every 3 months or so), I feel my sinuses drain and tension in my head and neck decrease. Whenever I begin to get a headache now, I head straight in for an adjustment as that is my indicator that I’ve lost my alignment.

My fiancé has also had success with N.U.C.C.A. He initially sought treatment 4 years ago for chronic back and knee pain. He no longer has those problems, provided he is holding his alignment. As an added bonus, he has stopped snoring when he is in alignment! As soon as I notice him snoring at night now, we know he needs to go see Dr. Scholten.

I 100% recommend N.U.C.C.A. The procedure makes so much sense to me physiologically and my own personal experience has me completely convinced that it works.
