What is NUCCA?

The NUCCA Adjustment

NUCCA, which stands for ‘National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association’, is a radically different approach to healthcare. It focuses on making a very specific and gentle adjustment of the Atlas vertebrae, bringing it back to it’s proper position, and restoring balance to your body.

The atlas vertebrae is the top bone in the cervical area of the neck, which supports your head and brain. The atlas is very unique in that it 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, but as a consequence provides less stability. Also, this is a critical area of neurological function due to its close proximity to the brain stem, which controls the healing communication from the body to the brain.

Like a fingerprint, everyone’s misalignment is unique to them, and is adjusted accordingly. A specific, laser aligned, low dose x-ray series is used to determine your exact misalignment pattern, which gives the doctor the necessary information needed to correct your misalignment.

The doctor analyzes your films using precise calculations developed by the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association to determine the specific reduction pathway and corrective force needed to gently bring your head, neck and atlas back into alignment. These highly sophisticated calculations allow us to correct this complex and delicate region of the spine with very little force, and no “cracking,” “twisting”, or “popping”. This resulting alignment relieves the stress on posture nerves that feed your brain stem, the communicator between your brain and all the functions of your body, thus allowing the body to heal itself. The NUCCA correction has been called a whole body adjustment, because people with health problems in the lower parts of the body also respond well to the NUCCA correction.
