This gentle, non-invasive technique was developed in 1966 to create a radical new way of healing that can help restore body balance and perfect health. The focus of the NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care) work is the relationship between the upper cervical spine (neck) and its influence on the central nervous system and brain stem function. It is this relationship that affects every aspect of human function from the feeling of sensations in your fingers to regulating hormones, controlling movement, and providing the ability to hear, see, think, and breathe.
NUCCA chiropractic care is a unique form of spinal health care today. Many other forms of chiropractic focus on addressing local joint function by administering a short, quick thrust to a localized area. NUCCA chiropractic care influences the entire spinal column's postural balance by restoring the proper alignment of the heavy head on top of the narrow neck by a very gentle, specific adjustment. NUCCA care improves structural and postural balance which improves postural stability and mobility. The benefit of NUCCA care is long term spinal balance which leads to improved overall health and well-being.
