A NUCCA chiropractor uses a set of procedures particularly meant for re-aligning the upper neck and the head. They use a precise adjustment approach to restore your health and gain a proper body balance, thus, correcting your posture.

While traditional chiropractic treatments may involve twisting, popping, or cracking of the spine, a NUCCA chiropractor uses precise and gentle adjustment techniques, aimed at the holistic treatment of patients, providing them with fast relief, maximum recovery, and long-lasting effects.

NUCCA adjustments are extremely effective and can release you from several chronic disorders or pain cases. While nothing comes with a 100% guarantee, NUCCA adjustments have been known to provide long-lasting effects as they restore your body’s health and allow it to recover naturally

It depends. While an adjustment can last for months to years, absolute healing occurs eventually. NUCCA chiropractic treatments allow your body to heal naturally, bringing back its proper balance.

NUCCA uses generations of clinical research to correct the Atlas Subluxation Complex. It uses precise and objective x-rays of the head and neck, plus mathematical measurement analysis to establish an accurate pattern of the patient’s misalignment before beginning treatment on the patient.

Here’s how NUCCA accomplishes its goal of correcting your posture and other misalignments:


    Mathematical measurement analysis of the injured/affected area

  • Precise and objective X-rays of the head and neck
  • An accurate establishment of the misaligned pattern that differs from person to person


  • A study of the misalignment of the patient
  • Use the correlation between posture and upper cervical misalignment to let the posture decide the alignment
  • The doctors take x-rays to determine the best solution to your misalignment and then take follow-up x-rays to ensure an accurate and successful adjustment.
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS): This autoimmune, chronic, and progressive disease affects the central nervous system (CNS) including the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. This condition allows the body’s immune system to attack the myelin surrounding and protecting the nerve fibers and causes inflammation. NUCCA adjustments can attend to patients suffering from this condition as well.
  • Fibromyalgia: This chronic disorder causes widespread pain and tenderness in the soft tissues and muscles and also, fatigue and sleep disturbances, along with cognitive difficulties. NUCCA practitioners have come across patients dealing with this condition and treated them with NUCCA adjustments.
  • Trigeminal neuralgia: This chronic pain condition affects the trigeminal nerve responsible for transmitting sensory information from the face to the brain. If this nerve is damaged or inflamed, it can be severely painful to the face. Treatment for this condition may involve medication like anticonvulsants or antidepressants, even surgical procedures to relieve pressure on the nerve, such as microvascular decompression or radio-frequency ablation. NUCCA adjustments are reported to be able to manage this condition.
  • Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS): Occurred post a traumatic brain injury, PCS is
    characterized by symptoms that can last for weeks, months, or even years. NUCCA
    adjustments can help such patients bring their daily life back into routine by making appropriate adjustments in the body.
