Experience the NUCCA Difference
What is NUCCA?
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) has developed a highly advanced procedure that is both extremely precise and gentle technique, unlike any other kind of care. A gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebrae in the neck is designed to restore balance to the spine. Even though the primary focus is the neck, the effect of the correction influences the whole spine and all body systems.
This is because the NUCCA procedure influences one of the highest control centers over body balance, the brain stem and central nervous system.
The C-1 vertebra, also known as the Atlas, is a small ring-like bone located at the top of the spine and the base of the skull that surrounds the brain stem. When the spine is subjected to stress it can become misaligned beginning at the Atlas vertebrae. The spine will then compensate for the misalignment of the head and neck by the rest of the spine moving and twisting out of their normal positions.
The NUCCA procedure utilized at Discover Health Chiropractic places great importance on correcting the cause of body imbalance rather than just treating your symptoms. NUCCA care emphasizes spinal correction and stability for long term results.
