What is the procedure?
We use a precise, gentle contact on the very first bone of the spine also known as the atlas to correct your misalignment. NUCCA care works by taking four specific and repeatable x-rays of the upper cervical spine and then analyzing these x-rays with specific calculations in order to determine the best angle for an adjustment. Our goal is to align the neural canal (the neck) with the foramen magnum (base of the skull). The brainstem is found in this area and that is why a good correction has such a profound impact on the patient’s overall health.
What is the goal of NUCCA?
The goal of the NUCCA procedure is to allow your spine to maintain its correction for the rest of your life with as few adjustments as possible. Our vision is to provide world-class chiropractic care to restore and maintain your spine and nervous system, by correcting the cause of current and potential health problems. Our patients will be able to reap the benefits of living a happy, healthy life.

What is a subluxation?
A subluxation is a misalignment of spinal bones that cause nerve interference. This type of interference can cause immediate pain or degeneration in the long run. The nervous system plays a major role in controlling the function of organs and systems; therefore a subluxation that is left uncorrected can lead to a wide variety of health problems.
