NUCCA: Health Care for the 21st Century

NUCCA is a little known yet highly effective corrective procedure that has been developed and refined for over forty years by the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) and its research affiliate the Upper Cervical Research Foundation (UCRF).

The NUCCA chiropractic method is a gentle and safe form of chiropractic care, with a focus on lasting results. The NUCCA procedure focuses on correcting the entire spine back to a balanced, unstressed position in order to reactivate 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.

What makes NUCCA different?

  • NUCCA is gentle and specific. Not only is the NUCCA spinal correction extremely precise, it uses the least force of any chiropractic technique. There is absolutely no popping, twisting, or cracking of the neck or back.
  • NUCCA is highly effective. Because of the precise nature of the NUCCA spinal correction, patients are able to hold their corrections for longer periods of time compared to traditional chiropractic methods. This allows for better recovery and lasting results with fewer office visits.
  • NUCCA is scientifically based. The NUCCA spinal correction is a scientifically-based, thoroughly researched and well-documented approach to health. NUCCA is the only procedure that uses:
    1. 3D composite x-rays to calculate how to best adjust and correct each patient’s individual misalignment.
    2. An Anatometer with bilateral weight scales to measure body distortion.
    3. Post-adjustment x-rays to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the correctio

What NUCCA Is Not

The NUCCA approach to spinal health is very different from other chiropractic methods. Most chiropractic adjustments put forces into the spine believing they will work without much objective evidence that a change has been made. If a spinal joint is popped or makes noise it does not mean that a bone is back into a normally aligned position.

As opposed to traditional chiropractors, who make forceful adjustments up and down the spine, NUCCA practitioners utilize the top vertebra of the spine to very specifically and gently realign the entire spine back to a balanced position. It is not necessary to adjust the spine over and over again if it is truly corrected and stabilized. When corrected, the spine needs to be left alone in its normal position unless it is misaligned again.
