What is NUCCA?

NUCCA stands for ‘National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association’, and is an important approach to our healthcare.

The focus of NUCCA is to restore the alignment between the upper cervical spine (neck) and its influence on the central nervous system and brain stem function.

The atlas, being the top bone in the neck, supports and holds up the head. It is the only vertebrae in the entire spine that has no disc and no interlocking joints to hold it in place. This allows for a great deal of movement for your head and neck, however it also may result in decreased stability creating interference to the proper function of the body.

As we live our lives we inevitably will experience some form of accidents, injuries, traumas and yes even stress. These things can create a misalignment of the Atlas bone. The NUCCA procedure is unique because it re-aligns the atlas bone, freeing the nervous system of interference
Regardless of your circumstances, NUCCA can have a life changing impact and profound healing effects. It is a gentle, non-invasive technique developed to create a new way of healing that can help restore body balance and perfect health.

Everyone’s misalignment is unique to them and their life experiences and are adjusted accordingly. Before any adjustments are given, X-rays are taken at various angles using a very specific, low dose digital x-ray machine which allows the doctor to determine your exact misalignment pattern. These x-ray calculations are determined using very precise math, physics and biomechanics showing the correct angle to gently bring your head, neck and atlas back into alignment. There is no twisting, cracking or popping of the neck, instead there is light pressure behind the ear similar to that of a massage. The atlas bone is slowly moved back into its proper alignment.

The resulting alignment of the atlas bone takes pressure off the nerves around the brain stem, improves the flow of cerebral spinal fluid entering and exiting the head, and improves communication between your brain and body, allowing the body to heal itself.
