Nucca Chiropractor

Is anyone familiar with the Nucca chiropractor theory of alignment of neck means better health? Ive got all sorts of neurological things going on and intense neck pain from herniated cervical discs and am basically losing my mind because surgery isnt really an option for me at this time. I also have MS, which means too many other things to worry about. Im reading alot about this Nucca Chiropractice.....has anyone had any experience?
thanks.
Nikki

hello MsNik. My experience shows is to NEVER ever go to any chiropractor. They are not for neck pain. They can damage your neck big time.
I went to one and he made my neck muscles worst. I forgive myself cause back then I wasn't in this forum and didn't know. so I warn you.

On a scale of 0-10 how would you say your pain is when 10 is the worst.

I would recommend for you, honestly, to go to the pain clinic. Over there they will prescribe you pain meds and even narcotics if needed. It's all better than going to any chiropractor.

You can also post here you MRI and other people here can analyze it.

all right?

All the best for you and hopefully get better

Re: Nucca Chiropractor

thanks for your thoughts. I would absolutely never resort to pain pills. Im a professional who works 50+ hours a week and is also finishing my docotorate level of graduate school; I have to be on the ball 24-7. I also happen to have Mulitple Sclerosis, which is tough enough to deal with. NUCCA is not chiropractic in the sense that you know it. Having already consulted with the NUCCA doctor, there is absolutely no manipulation involved. Thats why I asked if anyone here was familiar with it.

I have posted my MRI results, am completely aware of what they mean and have a follow up with an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in Cspine issues later today. im sure Ill be posting again with those results. But thank you just the same for your comments and taking the time to leave them.

Nikki
