The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) technique is a unique and gentle approach to health care designed to restore balance to the nervous system and the human structure. NUCCA practitioners focus on correcting the small misalignment of a bone structure, called the atlas vertebra, that connects the head and the upper neck.  A misalignment of the atlas vertebra can block the communication between your brain and the rest of your body resulting in pain, stress, tension and overall physical and emotional manifestations.  .

Using basic physics the NUCCA practitioner applies a gentle force to the atlas vertebra.  This gentle correction is designed to return the head back to its true center of gravity allowing the brain balance centers to reposition the pelvis, spine and body.  With the atlas misalignment corrected, optimum balance is restored to the entire spinal column and the function of the Central Nervous System is improved.  When the Central Nervous System is functioning more freely and your spine is balanced, your entire body lets go of stress, pain, and can express better overall balance and health.  Please visit the NUCCA website for all of the latest NUCCA information!
