Study Finds that NUCCA can lower blood pressure – posted on WebMD

Many times patients come to me with headaches, and back pain and after we get their atlas off of their spinal cord tell me that their blood pressure, breathing, digestion are all better. Our brains tell all of the body parts what to do and can have a profound effect on our overall health. Now, through the research documented by Dr. Marshall Dickholtz Sr., we have documented evidence on the power of the NUCCA adjustment.

From the WebMD article:

This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination,” study leader George Bakris, MD, tells WebMD. “And it seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects and no problems,” adds Bakris, director of the University of Chicago hypertension center.


“When the statistician brought me the data, I actually didn’t believe
it. It was way too good to be true,” Bakris says. “The statistician
said, ‘I don’t even believe it.’ But we checked for everything, and there it

Congratulations and thank you go to Dr. Dickholtz Sr., who was at the founding of the NUCCA organization. He has been instrumental in increasing the quality of the x-rays that we use while diminishing the radiation. The research is being published in the upcoming issue of Journal of Human Hypertension.

If you are having headaches/neck pain, back or shoulder problems, and are suffering from high blood pressure, give your local NUCCA doctor a call.
