Frequently Asked Questions

What is NUCCA Chiropractic?


NUCCA Chiropractic is a gentle, precise, and effective procedure to correct spinal misalignments. NUCCA focuses on the top two bones of the neck and their relationship to the skull. NUCCA Chiropractic returns the head and neck alignment to a more optimal position restoring the center of gravity to the spine.This allows the rest of the spine to return to balance and stabilize for better longer lasting results. For additional information please visit our NUCCA page.




What is Spinal Care?


Spinal Care is passive (NUCCA) care and active (exercises, ergonomics) care to best support the health and longevity of your spine. The spine is involved in every movement you make so Spinal Care is essential to living a full life without suffering.




What is the difference between NUCCA and tradtional Chiropractic methods?


Traditional Chiropractic focuses on general mobility of the spinal joints. Just because a joint has "popped" or "cracked" does not mean it has been restored to its proper alignment. It only means the joint is now more mobile; for better or worse. NUCCA focuses on balance and stability by restoring the optimal head and neck alignment restoring balance to the entire spine. NUCCA through a precise and specific procedure has reproducible and predictable results. Many people experience results with NUCCA that are better and longer lasting compared to tradtional Chiropractic methods.




What does a NUCCA correction feel like?


A light pressure by your ear. The pressure similar to that getting your pulse taken.




Do I need imaging?


In short to see is to know, to not see is to guess. We do not guess when it comes to our patient's health. Furthermore the effectiveness of the NUCCA procedure is a direct result of the detail imaging taken. The imaging produces a 3-D representation of the exact misalignment of your head and neck. That combined with a customized anaylsis specific to your anatomy produces phenomenal results.




How often do I need to get adjusted?


When it comes to spinal care we value stability over mobility. Our goal is to adjust you the least amount of times possible. We know we are on the right track when you come in the office to get checked and you do not need an adjustment. Many of our patients tell us they have recieved the longest lasting results with NUCCA spinal care in our office.
