What is NUCCA Chiropractic?

NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) is an acronym for the association it represents.

NUCCA is a sophisticated system of analyzing and aligning the neck by hand to open nerve channels, improve nerve function, and restore health. Once pressure is removed, the spine naturally comes into a balanced unstressed position.

NUCCA is a form of chiropractic care focused on correcting a small misalignment of the neck. The C1 vertebra or atlas is the ONLY BONE ADJUSTED by NUCCA Chiropractors.

This subtle, gentle, correction ultimately restores optimal balance to the entire spine. The NUCCA procedure essentially helps to “get your head on straight”!

NUCCA Chiropractors are Highly Trained

The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) is an organization representing a relatively small (about 300 worldwide) group of chiropractors choosing to focus all efforts on correcting the Atlas Subluxation Complex (ASC).

NUCCA is one of the most precise adjustments, also making it one of the most challenging to master.

NUCCA Chiropractic is Balance

A balanced spine has an opportunity to heal. The atlas misalignment creates muscle imbalance, setting the stage for injury and damage to tissues and joints. Spinal imbalances lead to stress and strain on tissues.

Our goal at Friends & Family Spinal Care is to restore body balance by removing the interference to the nerve system allowing the body to heal itself.

NUCCA Chiropractic is Different

NUCCA is different in that we strive to restore health through as few spinal corrections as possible. Our goal is spinal balance and long-term results.

We are not interested only in short-term pain relief. The NUCCA Chiropractors at Friends & Family Spinal Care are committed to achieving optimal wellness for you and your family.
