 What is NUCCA


What is NUCCA

NUCCA is an acronym which stands for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. NUCCA is a specialized chiropractic procedure that focuses on the correction of spinal mis-alignment without surgery or drugs. Doctor Reed utilizes a hand adjusting procedure to gently correct spinal mis-alignments.

The NUCCA procedure practiced by Doctor Reed places importance on the correction of the mis-alignment of the entire spine, skull & pelvis. In so doing, leg-length in-equalities are corrected.

There are six primary issues of concern, regarding spinal mis-alignments to Doctor Reed and his patients.

Pre x-rays determine the precise mis-alignment of the spine, skull & pelvis.

Corrections are all made by hand from the top bone of the spine (the atlas). This corrects the entire spine (neck, mid-back, lower back and hips).

For the adjustment, patients lie on the table on their side without turning their head, neck or back.

During the correction, patients feel a light pressure on the side of the neck, below the ear.

Post x-rays immediately following the initial correction ensure its accuracy.

A fifteen minute rest after the adjustment encourages the spine to stabilize in it’s new (corrected) position.

The NUCCA procedure restores the skull, spine and hips to their proper position. This takes the pressure off the nerves and allows the body to return to a neutral, balanced position. From this position, the malfunctioning body systems begin to recover and heal.

Some of you will have no symptoms at all that you can point to. Remember…..your symptoms are only the tip of the iceberg! It was the unseen that sank the Titanic.

Have your neck and brain stem checked for possible distortion. To quote Dr.Johanna Hoeller of Seattle, Washington, “Just when you thought you had tried everything, have you checked to see if your head is on straight?”
