Relief after years of back pain

Dr. Ziska,

I have had lower back pain for 10+ years; I have tried just about everything short of seeing a medical doctor. Their answers always seem to be surgery and that is not an option.

I have paid 200+ dollars for shoes that helped for about 3 months but never really took the pain away, just made it less uncomfortable for a while. I have purchased things from infomercials, like the back to life and others. Always they helped relieve some pain for a short time, but they either made it worse or did nothing at all. After going to the chiropractor and being twisted, pulled and not being able to sit, stand, walk or lie down for 3 days because the muscles and that problem area were to sore. I gave up on really having any real relief. So I just lived with it. I must also say that I refuse to take medications unless I really need them. So no Advil, Tylenol, or any other Anti- inflammatory were ever used. The “Pain” was more of a constant tight uncomfortable feeling in the lower back that never went away. Rolling over in bed was a chore, and sitting through a movie was so uncomfortable. I was seriously not going to go to the movies anymore but I love them so. Standing for more than 10-15 minutes was not good, I was always shifting and adjusting trying to get a spot that was tolerable, and as a contractor doing all types of household repairs and remodeling, I am always lifting, crawling, bending and just plain brutalizing my back.

I have known Dr. Ziska for a few years because she is a friend of my wife’s. She told me while she was still in school that she could fix my back pain and when she was finished with school to come in and see her.

I was very skeptical because everything else has failed, so after a year of thinking about it I finally went to see her at one of her free screenings. Seeing how out of alignment I was, I took the leap and made an appointment to start the NUCCA process. At that time the muscles in my back where literally pulling on my groin to the point I was having a hard time driving anywhere past about 10minutes. (I go many different places, camping all summer long and the thought of not being able to drive to Branched Oak, about an hour drive I just can’t be that uncomfortable for that long.)

On the day of my first appointment I almost had to stop and take a driving break on the way to see Dr. Ziska. The groin pull was so bad (20 min drive from my house). After the 1st appointment was over, I got in my truck and headed for home, thinking, what the heck was THAT going to do for me.!! Then I realized 90 percent of the pain in my groin was gone, Coincidence!, but then the back muscles just kept releasing the tension and for the first time in a very long time, I rolled over in bed and NO shooting pain from my lower back . WOW! Still had a long way to go but at the point I knew it wasn’t coincidence. Now I have been to see her several times and each time it seems to be helping. By the way the groin pain is still gone from the very first visit. My back has not been in any real pain since the first adjustment. As I said I brutalize my back daily. Even my son notice I was able to get up off the floor without so much trouble. I still have a ways to go but I can sit through a movie now, go to a Broadway show and not fidget in the seats the whole time. I tell anyone I hear speaking of pain to go see Dr. Ziska.

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DR. Ziska

NUCCA Healing Stories

Check out some of our patient testimonials below!

High blood pressure improves


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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