N.U.C.C.A is a unique form of Chiropractic that focuses only on the upper neck, yet has benefits for the entire body. It is a proven, scientific, gentle and highly effective procedure that restores spinal balance by using the atlas as a lever.
The ultimate goal is to re-align the head and neck to restore postural balance while reducing the stress on the nervous system so that the body can heal optimally.
When the spine is balanced, or aligned, there is no irritation to the brain stem or associated spinal structures, including spinal nerves. Without irritation to the nervous system, the body can function at its optimum level.
Any accident, injury or permanent incorrect posture at any age can misalign the spine and cause the head and neck to shift away from the vertical axis. This causes stress on the nervous system, contraction of muscles, postural distortion of the body, and if left uncorrected, may contribute to spinal degeneration.
Even though the focus is the upper neck, the effects of restoring optimal relationship between the head and neck influences the whole spine and all body systems. Problems that existed due to your body compensating for a misalignment of the spine are eliminated with an adjustment.
Complete evaluation includes: orthopedic exam, posture exam, NUCCA X-rays, medical history.
After analysis of results, you will receive a care plan with the recommended frequency and length of NUCCA care.
Get ready to feel better with your first NUCCA chiropractic adjustment!
