I came across this form of Chiropractic care called NUCCA for neck/atlas sublaxations and was wondering if there is anyone out there who has tried this form of treatment. It sounds very convincing but I have never talked to anyone who has received this type of care. They say that you should only have it done by a board certified doc. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. It's too bad this type of care is not covered for patients who have significant spinal issues. I'm seriously getting to my end in trying to find solutions to all my headaches. I am willing to do anything at this point rather than more spinal fusion but that may be the only option but it's not an option that I want.

First, has a surgeon told you more fusion would help with headaches? How?

Second, chiro + neck can be deadly...
