For those of you who have not been in the office recently,
we are currently running our
Small Steps to Success Campaign
The Upper Cervical Research Foundation (UCRF
has been supporting NUCCA Research since 1971.
Your support of this campaign over the last 5 years has helped fund several research projects that are currently underway.
These projects are leading to some groundbreaking new
findings including the results of the chronic migraine
headache study we are now completing in Calgary.
In this study, we are utilizing a dynamic cardiac gated, phase contrast MRI technology that is revealing a physiological mechanism that occurs in the upper cervical spine
and cranio-cervical junction when the Atlas misalignment
is present. We are now finally able to explain more
clearly what we have observed in our NUCCA clinical practices for over 70 years. This patho-physiologic mechanism related to
the Atlas Subluxation Complex Syndrome is also pointing
us in new directions of further study.
As has been the case in other research efforts, as we
now gain a deeper understanding of these
physiological mechanisms, other questions arise
that need to be explored.
