News and Health Information from Body in Harmony

Is Omaha, NE drug dependent?

Does America have a problem with drug dependence? And how can upper cervical chiropractic care help?

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

  • Approximately 50% of Americans are on at least one prescription drug.
  • 1 out of 6 are on at least three prescription drugs simultaneously.

In addition to these figures, consider:

  • There are about 700,000 emergency room visits per year caused by drug interactions from pharmaceuticals that were properly prescribed.
  • The rate of Americans addicted to prescribed pain killers is slowly rising every year, to the point that more Americans are dying from prescription pain killer overdoses, than overdoses from heroine and cocaine.
  • America is only 5% of the world population, but U.S. citizens consume about 50% of the world’s pharmaceutical drug supply.

Is this a problem? You bet it is. Every years tens of thousands of individuals follow the directions on the bottle of their latest prescription drug, only to land in the hospital. And sometimes, more than you might think, they don’t live to go home again.

And some of those people live right here in Omaha, Nebraska.

What does this information have to do with upper cervical chiropractic care?

It’s simple. Because upper cervical doctors don’t rely on drugs or surgery, your upper cervical chiropractor cannot add to this problem.

In fact, not adding another drug or another potential drug interaction is one really important reason that many people decide that it’s time to try upper cervical care.

They want to step away from the drug-dependence of their usual health care. They want to see if they can have less pain, better movement, and a more responsive body without the risk of putting another drug in their body.

As many upper cervical chiropractic users put it:

“At least I know that I’m not creating a new problem or a new symptom by choosing upper cervical chiropractic.”

NUCCA Healing Stories

Check out some of our patient testimonials below!

High blood pressure improves

Terry

Just wanted to let you know how my blood pressure went down from over 145-155/85-90 down to 120/70. I had a life insurance physical shortly thereafter and the results were so outstanding that I got the Preferred Best rating.

All that for a 68 year old who has had problems with hypertension for the last 5 years. You said we could give NUCCA a try and it sure worked well for me.

Help with jaw pains and migraines

Kris

I have had migraines and jaw pain for years and they are all gone after only a few visits. I am so grateful and can’t wait to see the results my husband gets.

Off of allergy medication

Brian

I was a sickly kid and have had bad allergies my whole life. I have not had to take allergy medicine since the first correction and am thrilled. It is so great to be able to breathe again and not take medicine that I know has harmful side-effects. It is easier to get through my whole day. Thanks.

No headaches now, with deeper sleep

Carrie

I used to have headaches, really bad ones, at least once a week.  I haven’t had one since I came to your office. I sleep deeper and just have a better sense of well-being. I am so glad I found out about you.

I wanted less anxiety – I got that, plus more than I bargained for

Sam

I feel great – no shoulder tightness. All I wanted was to have less anxiety and I got that…and more than I bargained for. My wife and daughter feel great after NUCCA too. Thank you, Marcy.

Better balance while dancing

Dani

I feel very square and my balance in dance class and when teaching is really improved. I told my husband and a friend that they just have to come to see you.

I was very skeptical – worth the trip

Dan

I was very skeptical about NUCCA, but tried it after a work injury. My shoulder was numb, painful and tingly before driving several hours to see Dr. Ziska. Well, the tingling and numbness are gone and I have pain much less often. It was worth the trip!

No more back pain after one visit

Cari

This is great! No more back pain just after one visit. I feel great as a result of NUCCA care.
