What to Expect
We guarantee postural measured changes after your first correction
Established in 1966 The NUCCA procedure is a highly specialized, precise, non-invasive, gentle adjustment correction at the level where the Brain Stem meets the Spinal cord.
NUCCA can help you feel better regardless of your circumstances because your central nervous system affects all human function, therefore when it is inhibited, varying conditions or problems may result, but when it’s clear, optimal health and well-being can be realized.
The focus of the NUCCA work is on a small misalignment of the bone structure that connects the head and neck, a condition called the Atlas Subluxation Complex. This misalignment can block the communication between your brain and body causing pain, stress, tension, and overall physical and emotional dysfunction.
Some of the many symptoms that can be relieved by correction of the Atlas Subluxation Complex include but are not limited to:
What You Need to Know
What to Expect
We begin with a consultation and examination to hear about your situation, make some measurements, and discuss the potential of NUCCA treatment. The supine leg check, which shows leg length inequality, is the basic standard to determine if you have an upper cervical misalignment. We use an Anatometer, a NUCCA-endorsed measuring tool that evaluates standing posture. Any other health problems, injuries, motor vehicle accidents, surgeries, along with other treatment programs which include diagnostic tests and x-rays, are also evaluated and assessed. After this initial process, the doctor will begin the steps necessary to determine if your spinal column is significantly misaligned or out of balance.
