Many patients who have tried a number of medical and alternative approaches without total success find that the NUCCA procedure is the missing link to provide the relief they have been seeking.
What is Nucca ?
‘NUCCA’ is a SAFE GENTLE EFFECTIVE and highly SPECIALIZED image guided procedure leading the way in correcting head neck misalignment. The restoration principal states there is a normal alignment to the human frame. The Nucca procedure restores the normal alignment of the body back to the vertical axis:
WHAT MAKES NUCCA UNIQUE: the specific atlas correction
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.
Although we don't treat the patients symptoms or disease, some of the many secondary conditions patients report to have been helped with NUCCA care are :
NECK PAIN 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, Sciatica, Gait Abnormalities, Leg length Inequality
Fibromyalgia, Dysautonomia, High
/Low Blood Pressure, Neurodegenerative disorders
HOW IT WORKS
Prior to beginning care your posture is evaluated and leg lengths are measured.
These can be indicators that you have a upper cervical atlas misalignment.
Following postural assessment, any necessary diagnostic imaging may be performed to rule out any red flags or serious conditions.
Correct the misalignment
Using precise positioning and a gentle, constant pressure, we are able to reposition your spine into a more ideal position.
Post measurements provide information about how your body responded to the adjustment
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 !
