How the NUCCA Chiropractic Technique is Performed:
NUCCA stands for the “National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.” If it is found that your body and posture are out of proper alignment, the NUCCA Chiropractic procedure can begin to help you start back down the road of recovery. Based on the precise x-rays taken of your body, the Chiropractor is able to assess how to return the body back to the proper position. The good news is this procedure is pain free! In fact, when the NUCCA technique is being performed, most patients are unaware that anything is even happening. The NUCCA Chiropractic adjustment is performed by the doctor using the palm of their hand rested against the upper cervical/neck area of the patient. During the NUCCA chiropractic adjustment the patient is lying down on their side. The pressure applied to the patient is no more than the amount of pressure felt when the pulse is being taken in the wrist! fun!
How Quickly Does the NUCCA Treatment Work?
When the NUCCA Chiropractic procedure is performed correctly, there should be an immediate change in the body balance of the individual. This is a sign to the doctor that things are moving in the right direction. As a result, the patient’s body is given the best chance to start truly healing. But, it does not stop there. NUCCA is unique in that there is no guess work. After the first adjustment, and ONLY for the next 1-2 visits, a follow-up x-ray is used to ensure that the NUCCA adjustments were successful. The doctor will run a detailed analysis to make sure that the subluxation is removed. There is never any guesswork with NUCCA! The Chiropractor will always know your progress every step of the way as you move towards better health with this unique cervical chiropractic technique.
