The NUCCA procedure is both an extremely precise and gentle procedure. A gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebra 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 body systems.

This is because NUCCA influences the brain stem and central nervous system. When the spine is subjected to stress it can become misaligned beginning at the atlas vertebra.

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.

When the spine becomes misaligned, it stresses the nerves and compromises their normal impulses and changes their function throughout the body.

NUCCA uses precise mathematical calculations, physics and biomechanics to correct the entire spine to a more balanced position, thereby improving the function of the muscles, blood flow and body systems.


Brain before adjustment

The image above shows the brain prior to an upper cervical chiropractic manipulation. The “holes” in the image indicate a lack of blood flow from the cervical spine.


Brain after adjustment

This image shows the brain after an upper cervical chiropractic manipulation. The smoother appearance of the images indicates improved blood flow to the brain. Improved blood flow allows all areas of the brain to get more nutrients and oxygen, thus improving brain function and reducing spine problems.
