Natural Solutions for Chronic or Daily Migraines
Migraine headaches are the world’s most common neurological disorder. Almost 20% of people will experience a migraine at some point in your life. If you’re lucky, you may experience a migraine once or twice and never have one again. However, most migraine sufferers will experience 1 or 2 migraines per month making them a chronic migraine sufferer.
Roughly 4 million people will experience chronic daily migraine headaches where you can have over 15 migraine headaches per month!
Migraine is not just a headache. It is a serious neurological disorder. Not only will you experience severe head pain, but it’s common for migraine sufferers to have vertigo, nausea, digestive disorders, and visual disturbances. A history of migraine headache is also an increased risk factor for stroke and Parkinson’s Disease.
Although migraines are extremely common and disabling, it remains an illness that is extremely underfunded, and the drugs available for many people are not enough.
Migraine Headaches and the Atlas
Migraine is a complex illness that has been a challenge to cure because it affects so many people in different ways. In recent years, research has found that many migraine cases can be associated with the neck.
The top part of the neck where it meets the head is a very neurologically sensitive area that can affect pain and circulation to the head. When the head and neck shift, it can compromise the blood vessels and nerves that pass through the head and create an environment for migraine headaches to exist. While some doctors are using surgery to correct underlying neck issues, there are numerous conservative options available to help you get your quality of life back.
The NUCCA procedure allows for a very precise correction of the neck without any popping, twisting or cracking of the spine. It also allows for the doctor to identify if the underlying neck problem has been corrected. Most patients with chronic daily migraines will see a difference in their migraine symptoms within weeks of their first correction.

Dr. Chung came highly recommended and I had my first appointment on Monday 9/28/15 due to having headaches and migraines non stop for 2 weeks then became vertigo. Dr. Chung did an adjustment on me and I have been headache, migraine and vertigo free for the past 4 days… It’s an amazing feeling to be pain free… Thank you Dr. Chung you’re awesome!
I’ve been suffering from chronic headaches and back/neck pain for years. After trying several different things – physical therapy, steroid injections, regular chiropractic, acupuncture – you name it, and I’ve most likely tried it at some point, I finally discovered NUCCA Chiropractic. Without any hesitation, I can honestly say that it’s the only thing that’s ever worked – I now only get headaches every once in a while and I haven’t felt this good in years.
Dr Chung and his staff make you feel so comfortable and you know (unlike most “regular” chiropractors) that he sincerely wants you to feel better – his goal is your health, not to clear your pocket book. I would recommend him to anyone!!! Trust me on this one. Your health depends on it!
I have suffered with headaches virtually every day of my life since I was about 8 years old. Some days I could barely function…other days were tolerable. I tried everything from drugs…to bio-feedback…to chiropractic care…to changes in diet…to botox injections…to hypnosis and visualization. Whenever my stress level went up, so did the amount of pain in my head and neck and shoulders. When the weather was bad or windy…my headaches seemed to increase. When I was excited or anxious or happy or sad…my head hurt!
About 2 months ago, I began seeing Jonathan Chung. With no popping, twisting or cracking…I am almost headache free. My head doesn’t feel heavy anymore!!! Truly, this seems like a miracle. I’ve never felt like this before.
