Headaches , Neck Pain , Car Accident  Whiplash, Concussion ? 

 ‘NUCCA’  is a  highly specialized upper cervical technique leading the way in understanding how the upper neck can impact spinal alignment, posture, chronic pain, migraines & headaches, fluid dynamics of the brain, concussion, facial pain, neurodegenerative disease, TMJ and more. 

Some of the many conditions patients report to have been helped with NUCCA care:


Headaches / Migraines 
Trigeminal neuralgia 
Meniere's disease
Tinnitus Vertigo
Brain Fog 
Body Imbalance 

NECK Whiplash,  Neck pain, Stiffness, Muscle spasm, Disc Herniation, Joint Ligament Injuries   Upper Extremity Numbness Tingling Pins and Needles 

BACK PAIN: Pelvic malalignment Syndrome, Herniated Disc, Arthritis, Sciatica, Gait Abnormalities,  Lower Extremities: Hip, knee, ankle, foot pain

High Blood Pressure
Neurodegenerative disorders 


NUCCA recognizes the critical relationship between the upper cervical spine (neck) and the central nervous system and brain stem function. When the top vertebrae of the spine (called the Atlas) is misaligned, it can result in stress, tension and pressure on the entire nervous system. This can impact all functions of the body, from breathing, to digestion, to circulation. When left untreated, it can result in varying health conditions and chronic pain. Through a precise but incredibly gentle technique, we ensure the Atlas is aligned, the spine is straight and balanced, and the head is centered over the neck – thus restoring balance in your body and ensuring efficient communication to the nervous system. This can alleviate stress, pain, and discomfort, allowing the body to heal and function properly.

Many patients who have tried a number of medical and alternative approaches without success find that NUCCA care provides the relief they have been seeking.


Postural assessment : 

Prior to beginning care and at each regular visit, your posture is evaluated and leg lengths are measured. These are signs that you have a misalignment.

Visualize the misalignment

Following postural assessment, precision x-rays are taken to confirm the misalignment, rule out other more serious conditions, and formulate a plan tailored to your body.

Correct the misalignment

Using precise positioning and a gentle, constant pressure, we are able to reposition your spine into a more ideal position.

Confirm the correction

Post adjustment x-rays provide information about how your body responded to the adjustment and whether any fine-tuning is needed.

Maintain the correction

This may be surprising, but the goal of care is to not need an adjustment. This means your body is holding the corrected position and operating efficiently.

When you have tried everything else ....we can help !
