Back Pain

I originally came to see a NUCCA doctor because I was in a car accident and had hurt my back. After 2 adjustments I realized that the chronic pain that I had been experiencing in my feet was almost gone. Since I walk all day this means a lot to me.



I was in a car accident over 2 years ago and have experienced terrible back pain and headaches since then. Iíve seen 2 different M.D.'s, 2 different Chiropractors, and a dentist for the TMJ that has developed since my accident.

It wasn't until I visited a NUCCA specialist that I experienced long term relief from the pain and headaches. The care that I've received has been wonderful and given me back my life. No longer do I wake up in the morning and say "Iíve just got to get used to the idea that Iíll be in pain the rest of my life." Iím healthier and happier then Iíve been in a long, long, time.


Chronic Pain, Trigeminal Neuralgia

I was in an auto accident over 10 years ago and have had multiple chronic pain issues ever since. When I came to the NUCCA doctorís office I was in severe Trigeminal Neuralgia pain and a friend had to drive me to the office.

This pain is almost completely gone after just one visit.

Even my energy level has increased! (I have the diagnosis of chronic fatigue).


Herniated Disc, Neck Pain and Breathing Difficulties

This is a good time to reflect on how far I have come since my first NUCCA adjustment in July of 2002. Almost 6 months elapsed between my adjustment in May and my adjustment last week, which is the longest I have ever been able to go between adjustments. To think that I started out at adjustments twice a week, during the first month, due to the extent of my neck injuries!

One of the most meaningful changes NUCCA has brought about for me is that I have more physical strength and endurance in my 50s, almost immediately following my first adjustment, than I did at age 18, after my first car accident. Even before my second car accident, in 1988, for years I could not work at a desk for extended periods, paint a room, or lift more than one thing over ten pounds without either my right arm becoming numb, or feeling stabbing pains near my shoulder blades, or both.

In later years, my neck would sometimes become so weak after activity, it felt more comfortable to walk around with my neck at a 45 degree angle. And how much can I do now? Well, looking to the latter half of this year for examples, I spread three tons of topsoil and over forty bags of mulch in my yard, painted over half of a four bedroom house, and have spent nearly every evening on my computer without even a twinge!

Another very meaningful change from NUCCA is the complete disappearance of some breathing spasms that had developed whenever I slept on my back or stomach, due to pressure on my upper spinal cord from herniated cervical discs. That is a huge relief not only physically, but also Psychologically. If I had ever needed surgery lying on my back or stomach, I would not have been a steady target under a surgeon's scalpel.

To top everything off, I have also noticed a consistent improvement in my posture, something no amount of prodding from my mother or ballet lessons were ever able to affect for the long term when I was growing up.

I can't say NUCCA has always been a smooth road, because in my case there was a lot to correct, and sometimes adjustments didn't feel like anything I had become used to.

I couidn't always move forward to a longer time interval between adjustments when I wanted to, and a few times even had to take a step back to a shorter time interval. However, this moment's reflection makes me realize how much healing you and NUCCA have channeled for me, something I didn't know would ever be possible, and that overall going through NUCCA treatment has been more than worth the extra time, efforts, patience, and expense. Even though necessarily ongoing, the NUCCA corrections to the herniations of three discs in my neck have been far more efficacious than the one-time surgical sacrifice of those discs would have been.

In addition, you are a caring and effective practitioner of the highest standards. If you ever don't feel appreciated, or when others don't seem to share your enthusiasm for NUCCA, there is a strong possibility it may only be because they don't want to any lose more time by reflecting on their conditions, and all they have missed out or suffered through prior to treatment.

Chronic Pain, Headaches

n 2004 I was involved in an car accident that left me with serious neck problems. The pain I was having in my neck was like pain I have never felt before. The pain would be so bad that it would cause me to have terrible headaches, so bad that I was unable to continue with daily activities like work & take care of my son.

The pain would radiate down my arm & cause my face & arm to go numb, the pain was so intense at times that it would literally make me sick. This was occurring several times a week, which was getting in the way of my everyday life. I couldn't do normal activities anymore; lift, push, pull, look from side to side. I couldn't even play with my son anymore without it causing me to have awful pain.

I was referred to go to a regular chiropractor, advised that this was all I needed & I should feel better. I was going to the chiropractor 3-4 times a week for months with only temporary relief. After the chiropractor wasn't working I was then referred to a physical therapist, where I was told that all I needed was to do some stretches & would feel better.

After months of going to the physical therapist with still no lasting relief I was then referred to a pain management Dr, who then put me on several different medicines & starting giving me injections in my neck. After a few months of that with no lasting relief he decided to combine all these things & that should do the trick.

So, I was seeing a physical therapist twice a week, taking muscle relaxers & a prescription anti-inflammatory daily, & getting painful injections in my neck once a week. Still no lasting relief.

After that, I saw a neurologist who still couldn't find the problem along with a few other Dr's. After that I tried massage therapy, still nothing that would last. I had several MRI's that all came back normal. No one could seem to find what was wrong with me, but here I am, with obviously something wrong because I am in so much pain. It was so bad that I was now taking Vicodin to help with the pain but even that didn't give me much relief.

After all that I gave up. I thought this was just something I was going to have to deal with for the rest of my life. Then, after 5 long years of suffering through this, someone referred me to a NUCCA specialist Dr. Friedman. I went in with not much hope that he was going to be different than anyone else who I had seen before. But he was different. He was the first Dr I had seen in 5 years that actually wanted to find the source of my problem instead of trying to just put me on medicine.

He explained to me in detail what was going on & what he was going to do to make me better. I have been going to Dr Friedman for almost a year now & although I am not completely pain free I am so much better than I have been in a long time & I am continuing to follow his treatment plan to feel even better. No more laying in bed 2-3 times a week because I'm in so much pain. I can play with my son again! I finally, after 5 years of agonizing pain, have my life back!
