There are many types of headaches which may occur due to different causes. However, all kinds of headaches have one feature in common; pain in the head. Research studies show that there is a direct relationship between tension and cervical related headaches.
The initial step in treating headaches is determining the type of headache. Some headaches may be a symptom of some underlying disease or illness, which is not apparent.

NUCCA spinal correction approach proves quite useful for treating headaches through upper cervical correction.

Types and Symptoms of Headaches

Headaches are of many types and determining its type helps with better and more effective treatment. Chronic headaches occur for 15 or more days, daily. Its sub-types include the following:

  • Hemicrania continua, a headache in one side of the head that may feel similar to migraine
  • Primary exertional headaches due to exercising
  • Chronic paroxysmal hemicranias are sharp headaches on one side of the head that can also cause a congested nose or tearing
  • Primary stabbing headaches can happen several times during the day and may last for a few seconds

Other common types of headaches include:

  • Cluster headaches that are one-sided and cause intense pain in the head. A patient may experience these headaches on and off through the course of a week or a few months.
  • Headaches associated with tension occur due to stressful situations
  • Migraine headaches cause moderate to severe pulsating pain, accompanied by nausea and vomiting or enhanced sensitivity to the light or sounds. These headaches occur on only one side of the head and last for about 4 to 72 hours without any treatment.


The sciatic pain typically originates in the lower back and travels down in one or both legs. The frequency or intensity of pain may fluctuate, or it may remain constant. The compression of the sciatic nerve causes painful symptoms, including

  • The concentration of pain in one side of the lower back
  • Constant pain in just one side of the lower back
  • Sharp and shooting pain along the path of the sciatic nerve
  • Pain that becomes worse while sitting
  • Difficulty in making leg or foot movement
  • Radiating pain that moves down the leg, foot, and toes
  • Numbness, tingling or burning in legs
  • Difficulty in standing and breathing
  • Symptoms of a panic attack

The sciatic pain intensity may vary from becoming infrequent and disturbing to constant and debilitating. Symptoms of sciatic pain are generally dependent on the pinched nerves position.

Our Treatment

NUCCA spinal correction gently works to correct the top bone (atlas) alignment of the spinal vertebrae. The atlas is located at the joining of the neck and head. This small bone structure surrounds the vital components of the CNS (central nervous system), the point where your brain ends meet the spinal cord. The atlas vertebrae displacement affects the communication of nerves between the brain and the body. Many types of headaches are caused due to the mechanical pressures and strains on this precise location.

At Precision Spinal Care, our NUCCA specialist focus on performing exact NUCCA correction which helps in stabilizing the structural shifting of the atlas. Through this precise realignment procedure, the nerve communication is restored which enables the normal body function and begin the process of natural healing.

We offer a customized treatment plan for patients suffering from headaches. Our expert first identifies the cause of headaches and determines the course of treatment.
