Migraine Headaches

Thirty-five years ago, I began to suffer from migraine headaches which would make my head throb with pain and make me sick to my stomach. I would need to miss work and spend the day in bed with a ice pack on my neck and a cold compress on my forehead. Noise and light made the pain of the migraine worse, so I would need complete quiet and total darkness while I rested. After the worst of the migraine was gone, I would still be so wiped out that I could not function in my normal routine so my whole family suffered through my migraines with me.

Wanting relief from the migraines, I tried every over-the-counter medication imaginable and nothing helped. I also tried going to a chiropractor, who focused on pain management, and had my neck and back "cracked." I tried five different chiropractors who each tried to manage my pain through their own special technique, whether it was electrical stimulus therapy, ultra-sound therapy, or tools like the activator. Nothing helped and I continued to suffer with my neck pain and migraines.

Then I heard about an upper cervical technique called NUCCA that focuses on spinal correction and retrains the spine to correct subluxations and restore the body to optimal health. After my first NUCCA adjustment, my neck was actually PAIN-FREE and I had grown so used to pain in my neck that I cried from amazement. Through following a NUCCA care plan, I have now been FREE from migraines for over 8 years !! Seeking care from a NUCCA doctor was the best decision of my life because it gave me my life back.

Migraine Headaches

I am 49 years old and in good health, annual check-ups throughout my life. I decided that the only health issue I had was headaches since my early teens. I wanted to attack this problem "Head on" and see if there was a possible cure other than OTC pain relievers daily.

I went to Mayo Clinic in search of cause and cure. I discussed with my primary Dr. and he diagnosed me with migraines and I was experiencing them daily. He put me on the exam table and noticed my legs were (not even?).

He immediately told me about the issues and suggested 3 specialists that could help me. One of the three was located in the southeast: Dr. Friedman. I was skeptical at first, but had reminded myself I would try anything to reduce my headaches. My first visit (exam) did indeed, show misalignment. Through Dr. Friedman's process along with more healthy living-water, exercise, vitamins, I noticed improvement after the first visit.

By my second visit I was incredibly headache FREE! This was the point that I put my skepticism aside and now enjoy living without constant headaches. My thanks to Mayo’s for suggesting this (therapy?) and my Thanks to Dr. Friedman for truly curing my constant migraines.

Migraine Headaches

I thought the rest of my life was going to be spent bed-ridden until I was led to NUCCA. I was 24 and had very bad migraine headaches daily for 2 years. I had numerous tests done including: M.R.I, cat scan, blood work, and a sinus X-ray and the results were all healthy.

I thought I was hopeless. I tried another chiropractor and after a few visits with no results, (it felt like they were just cracking my back and wasn't targeting my problem) I heard about NUCCA.

After the first visit without all the harsh popping and cracking, I noticed a change. After the 3rd I noticed a significant change and now I rarely have headaches and if I do they are normal and minor NOT migraines. It is wonderful.

Who knew a simple touch could be so effective?


Migraine Headaches

I would like to start by saying upper cervical adjustments have completely changed my overall health and attitude on life. I came to NUCCA over 6 months ago after suffering from migraines for the last 6 years. I would experience a migraine at least once a month during or a week before the onset of my menses.

To me, it was just a "given" that I would get one and I lived with that. Some months depending on the stresses in my life, I would experience more than one migraine. If something upset me or recently since I have been in school taking tests, I would get a migraine during mid-terns and finals as well as during my menses.

I began to realize I was having migraines more than I was free of them. I was in pain one day in Dr. Friedman's class and he noticed and suggested that I come to see him at his office. Since, I am also studying to be a chiropractor, it didn't take much convincing and I wanted to see if upper cervical adjustments could help me more than some of the other chiropractic techniques I have tried. It did help and I am convinced it is the only way to help my migraines.

I felt a big sense of relief from the first adjustment, as though someone lifted a heavy weight off of my neck and shoulders. My head usually radiates with pain during my migraines and to be able to say that I have not had a serious migraine for over 6 months is incredible. I experienced one minor migraine two months ago, after I got into a minor car accident, but since then, I have not had another.

The NUCCA correction has truly changed my world. I can happily say I do not get migraines before, during or after my menses anymore, nor have I had one from any stress in my life.


Migraine Headaches

I started to have severe headaches 4 to 5 years ago. My symptoms included sensitivity to light, throbbing pain at the base of my neck on my right side shooting forward to my temple and eyes, and nausea. Over the years I have seen a few neurologist.

I was diagnosed with anything from tension to sinus or migraine headaches. Each time I was given a new prescription for a drug to try and help prevent the headaches and for pain. I was instructed to take this drug everyday and whenever I had a headache. I always left the doctor's feeling defeated. I knew the drug would help the headache, but it didn't solve why I was getting these severe headaches.

I've never been a person who likes to take pills, especially everyday. I would take the pills for a few weeks each time as prescribed and then stop. My headaches started to come back and more frequent. After a few trips to the hospital and spending countless days and nights in my bed with every single light off in the house, I tried to accept that this was just going to be a part of my life. Constantly in pain and miserable.

After missing a few days of work due to a trip to the hospital for a migraine headache, a coworker told me about a new type of Chiropractor she had been seeing for her migraine headaches. She sent me an email the office had sent out in December 2007 offering a special price for new clients. I had been to Chiropractors in the past with no relief so I was skeptical.

She informed me that Dr. Friedman was a NUCCA specialist, and the only one certified in the state of Georgia. At this point, what did I have to lose visiting one more doctor besides spending more money!

During my first visit, I noticed right away, this doctor's office and staff were different from other offices. I was given a tour of the entire office and thoroughly explained what a NUUCA specialist is and does. I'd never heard of this chiropractic approach before, but for the first time it started to make sense "Why I might be having these severe migraines. Dr. Friedman took a set of X-rays before and after my adjustment. I've never had x-rays taken after an adjustment. This allowed him to see if the adjustment had worked or if he needed to work on me some more.

I continued to see Dr. Friedman 8 times after my initial visit over a two month period. I only had two bad migraines during that time as opposed to 2 to 3 a week. I stopped going after the first 8 appointments because I was having financial trouble. My migraines disappeared for a while but eventually came back because I never allowed Dr. Friedman to finish my treatment.

In June 01, 2009, I was having migraines 2 to 3 times a week again. I decided to give Dr. Friedman a call and make another appointment. I was so impressed that he called me back himself. He is the only doctor who has helped me determine why I am having these migraines and has helped me to prevent them without having to take a pill everyday to cope with the pain. He is working with me on my financial situation so I can finish my treatment. He is not only a great doctor but cares about each patient.


This treatment is restoring the health and function of thousands of people who were told nothing could be done. It is also preventing countless conditions for people who get under this care before they get into crisis.
