Disc pain in the neck
I have two deteriorating discs in my neck and for years the pain was very difficult to tolerate. I just wanted to remove my head every night and avoid the discomfort I experienced. I don’t want to sound like a commercial, but the difference Dr. Read has made in my life is profound. I can go for several weeks and sometimes months without hurting. I can sleep! No matter what I tried in the past, I never got relief in the way I have with my treatments from Dr. Read. If you think you have untreatable pain, please consider what the NUCCA method can do for you.Elizabeth
Neck pain and avoiding knee surgery
I was continually having issues with my neck from an old whiplash (car accident). My friend told me about Dr. Read. She has relieved my stiff neck greatly by the N.U.C.C.A method, but an added bonus was that I did NOT have to have my torn meniscus surgery after a series of treatments by Dr. Read. My knee healed. I wish I would have know about her before I had the surgery on my other knee! I especially like the gentle way she adjusts you-no cracking!Pamela
No headaches, sleeping better, with more energy
I saw Barbara Kruse Read about 6 weeks ago, and my headaches are GONE! (Seriously! I was skeptical, but it really worked). Plus, I’m sleeping better at night and have more energy. My hips and knees feel better, and my circulation is much better also. I never knew my hands were cold before, but I can tell they are MUCH warmer now. NUCCA treatment is really great and different than other Chiropractic care. There’s no poppy or forcing things back into place. Just a gentle adjustment.Amy
