Frequently Asked Questions with NUCCA

Q: Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic help me?

A: The majority of those considering Upper Cervical care are quite surprised at the number of health conditions Upper Cervical care has been proven to help. However, the best way our NUCCA doctors can identify if they can help you with your health concerns is to attend a complimentary consultation. At this time the doctors will speak with you face-to-face about your health problems or concerns and discuss just how Upper Cervical Chiropractic can help you with your health needs. Remember, this visit is a conversation, not a commitment.

Q: How long does NUCCA take to help?

A: Immediately after the first spinal correction is given, pressure begins to reduce from the nerves, muscles, and joints. This means the body’s natural healing cycle begins before you even leave the office. However, healing does take time. Depending on how long the body was misaligned, and how much damage has occurred inside the body, the healing process will take longer. For this same reason, children respond extremely fast to Upper Cervical Chiropractic care. Since their problems have not been there as long, they heal faster. Because sick children become sick adults, the doctors of Molland Spinal Care recommend infants and children are checked for spinal misalignment. This helps to save them from years of health problems as they grow into their adult life.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: Treatment with Molland Spinal Care will begin with a one-on-one consultation. It is recommended that those who attend bring their spouse or loved one. This helps for 2 important reasons: 1.) Spouses and loved ones often help in making financial decisions. 2.) They will learn more about the care you will be recieving and how to help you through your healing process. In this session, your Upper Cervical doctor will discuss with you associated fees of care and payment options, which keep care affordable and accessible to all. There are NO long term or up front care plan fees, as well as no hidden fees. Follow-up care is only given as needed.

Q: How do I begin my care?

A: Before we begin treatment, we want you fully informed on our process for getting you well and the care you will be receiving. With this in mind we ask that you and your spouse together attend a consultation with either Dr. Liz or Dr. Zach. This consultation includes an understanding of health and healing, clarity on why you have struggled to benefit from other treatments, why Upper Cervical care is so effective, and how you can take back you life with a balanced spine. You can schedule your consultation by clicking the “Make an Appointment” boxes or by calling (908) 601-5600.

Q: What does the adjustment feel like?

A: The NUCCA adjustment is completely painless. You will feel a gentle touch behind your ear, equivalent to checking a piece of fruit for ripeness. Though the adjust is gentle, it is delivered with extreme specificity, which is the reason for its effectiveness.

Q: What are common responses to the NUCCA adjustment.

A: Your initial response to the NUCCA adjustment will vary based upon your spinal misalignment and symptoms. This is based on how much pressure and damage had developed in the body and how long the spine had been misaligned. The majority of patients will feel changes the day of their first correction. Some patients experience instant relief as pressure is removed from compromised tissues. In general patients feel a reduction in symptoms and progressive relief, as they continue to hold their spinal balance.

Q: Why is NUCCA care different?

A: FIRST NUCCA is extremely gentle and safe. There is no twisting, popping, or cracking of the spine. The correction focuses on removing spinal and nerve pressure from the top of the spine, which is the control center for many essential functions in the body. Even though the primary focus is the neck, the effects of the correction influence the whole spine and all body systems.

The SECOND reason NUCCA is radically different, is that the NUCCA technique is designed with longer lasting effects. By balancing the spine and frame, patients under NUCCA care are adjusted far less.

The THIRD reason is that NUCCA care is calculated and specific. The spinal corrections are based on math and physics. This means there is no guesswork when it comes to your care.

FOURTH, patients under NUCCA care are seen far less than traditional chiropractic. This allows you to have more independence from your doctor, as you continue to get well.
