THE NUCCA DIFFERENCE
Your body was brilliantly designed! NUCCA practitioners intervene only when that healthy design has been lost due to an overload of stress to the human structure. This overload of stress will cause a compromise in the position of the bone structures at the top of the neck creating an indirect neurological deficit to the muscles that control the spine and pelvis. This causes one side of the muscles next to the spine and pelvis to over contract creating body imbalance.
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. Less than 250 chiropractors worldwide have the specialized training and education to provide NUCCA care. NUCCA practitioners focus on correcting misalignment of a bone structure, called the Atlas, that connects the head and the upper neck. A shift of the Atlas sideways from a balanced relationship with the base of the skull is referred to as a misalignment. A misalignment of the Atlas can block the communication between your brain and the rest of your body resulting in pain, stress, tension and many other compromised physical and emotional manifestations.
Using basic physics, the NUCCA practitioner applies a gentle force to the Atlas. 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.
