The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association is an organization of Doctors of Chiropractic dedicated to patient care, education and research. Spinal health care using the NUCCA procedures focuses on detecting and correcting a small misalignment in the upper neck area. Gentle, non-invasive adjustments don’t require any turning, twisting or popping. Your upper cervical spine (neck) area influences all areas of your body. Injury or chronic misalignments can cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, low back pain, weakness and more. The NUCCA technique is currently offered by less than 1% of all the Doctors of Chiropractic. Before the NUCCA procedure can be performed, I will sit down with you and discuss your history and symptoms. If I determine that NUCCA can help, a thorough examination and x-rays will be done. A complete report of your findings and treatment options will be discussed. First adjustment Precision x-rays are taken of the spine before any treatment begins. The adjustment is performed with the patient lying on their side and the doctor applying a very light pressure behind the earlobe. A full demonstration can be seen on the video above. The NUCCA procedure can be summed up with 5 major distinctions as compared to traditional Chiropractic: Gentle adjustment to the neck with no turning, twisting or popping. Precision x-rays to measure before and after corrections. Total body posture and balance improvement Greater stability to the spine Hold adjustments longer with fewer visits
