What is NUCCA

NUCCA Chiropractic Care

NUCCA is the technique of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. NUCCA aims to improve body balance and spinal alignment.  We do this by examining and adjusting one of the most powerful areas of the spine, the upper cervical spine–the upper neck. This area of the body is very unique, as it is one of the most dynamic and influential segments of the body.

Restoring Head and Neck Alignment Allows the  Body to Reverse The Effects of Spinal Stress

The Body Response to Head and Neck Off Center

  • Muscles of the body become unbalanced, leading to unequal pulling on spinal vertebrae and spinal stress

  • There is a twist in the pelvis and hips, creating the appearance of a “short leg”

  • Unequal weight is carried on each half of the body, leading to joint aches and pains as the body breaks down faster on one side than the other

  • Finally blood flow to important areas like the spinal cord and brain stem are affected, negatively impacting internal organ systems, creating multiple and often confusing symptoms

With NUCCA Upper Cervical Care

  • Spinal alignment is restored

  • The spine regains motion and flexibility

  • Tight and painful muscles relax

  • Hips, pelvis, and weight become balanced

  • Pain is relieved

  • Stress is removed from inflamed joints

  • Spinal healing and recovery begin

By carefully restoring head and neck alignment, the body can begin to reverse the damaging effects of spinal stress.
