The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) technique is a unique and gentle approach to health care designed to restore balance to the nervous system and the human structure. Less than 250 chiropractors worldwide have the specialized training and education to provide NUCCA care. NUCCA practitioners focus on correcting the small misalignment of the upper neck, which often cause significant health issues. A misalignment of the atlas vertebra can block the communication between your brain and the rest of your body resulting in pain, stress, tension and overall physical and emotional manifestations.
The hallmark, so to speak, of NUCCA is precision and accuracy. The NUCCA practitioner applies a gentle force to the atlas vertebra, without the need to twist or "crack" the neck. This gentle correction is designed to restore proper head and neck alignment to allow brain balance centers to reposition the pelvis, spine and body. With the atlas misalignment corrected, optimum balance is restored to the entire spinal column and the function of the Central Nervous System is improved. A properly functioning nervous system leads to optimal health.
Many patients under regular NUCCA Chiropractic care have noticed improvement with the following:
- Better sense of overall well-being and quality of life
- Greater sense of ease
- Increased respiratory function, cardiac rate normalization, circulatory improvement
- Improved overall balance and center of gravity causing better posture
- More energy and restful sleep
- Better body-weight distribution
