NUCCA is an upper cervical chiropractic procedure that corrects the position of the top vertebrae of the spine, the C1 atlas. The atlas is a 2 oz. doughnut-shaped vertebra at the top of the spine. Trillions of nerve fibers from the brainstem travel though the small opening in the atlas and flow down into the spinal column. These nerve fibers supply every cell in our body with the vital connection to our brain. Since the atlas closely protects the brainstem, if the atlas has moved out of position even a fraction of a degree, many different diseases and conditions may occur.
The NUCCA upper cervical specialty is a gentle and safe form of chiropractic care, with a focus on permanent results. The NUCCA procedure is designed to correct the entire spine back to a balanced, unstressed position. During the correction, the patient does not experience any twisting or turning of the head, neck, or back. Instead, only a slight pressure is felt below the tip of the ear. This repositioning reactivates the transmission of healing messages from the brain to the affected part of the body (via the nervous system) so the body’s natural self-healing process can begin.
As soon as the NUCCA upper cervical correction is made and body balance is restored, the muscles IMMEDIATELY begin to relax and blood flow and oxygen circulation is increased. Healing messages are transmitted from the brain to the affected area.
We have had great success with those suffering from allergies, sinus infection, asthma, arthritis, back pain, sciatic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, migraines, neck pain, and chronic pain. These are just a few of the many conditions that have responded well to the NUCCA upper cervical chiropractic correction.
