Welcome to the 11th annual UCRF Small Steps to Success Campaign.

This annual campaign is an important part of the Upper Cervical Research Foundation (UCRF). Every year we raise awareness and resources to support our ongoing research. To see the benefits of this investment and the significant effort put forward by the organization since 1971, please visit the UCmonograph.org website.(Please review the UCRF Impact Report on the home page)

Why not get involved this year and join this important opportunity for you, your practice and the future of the NUCCA organization?

Our annual research fundraiser known as “Small Steps to Success” runs from November 1st through November 30, 2019We rely on donations! Not only does your support help further NUCCA research, it brings awareness to your patients about the valuable work we do and how we contribute something precious to the healthcare system.

Thanks to the generous donations of our past supporters, we have been able to complete several important research projects to date.

The Phase Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (PCMRI) Migraine study was a multidisciplinary project that created ongoing partnerships between NUCCA, University of Calgary Neurology and Elliot-Fong-Wallace (EFW) Radiology.  Advanced MRI data analysis of the Migraine study was completed allowing for additional exploration of observed hemodynamic and hydrodynamic flow pattern changes.  A series of manuscripts are being prepared for submission to a various radiology journals.

These and other study findings have opened the door for NUCCA to be presented to a wider audience including the International Society of Neurovascular Disease (ISNVD), the International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS), and the American Chiropractic Colleges Research Agenda Conference (ACC-RAC), to mention a few.

A common link is seen between migraines, concussion, neurodegenerative disorders such as MS. There is MRI evidence of altered venous drainage and changes in intracranial compliance following head and neck trauma.  More research is needed to further understand the pathophysiologic mechanisms of the ASC and how this influences altered blood/cerebrospinal fluid flow in the head and neck region following trauma.

We do rely on donations! Not only does your support help further NUCCA research, it brings a natural way to improve quality of life for the millions of people suffering from migraines, concussion, MS and many other health challenges.
