What is NUCCA?

This treatment involves an extremely specific adjustment of the first bone in the spine called the atlas. NUCCA stands for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. No twisting or popping of the neck occurs with this very gentle, yet profoundly effective adjustment. This technique is often helpful with headaches of various types, neck pain, back pain, numbness and tingling, and a number of other conditions that may be influenced from pressure at the top of the spinal cord, which contains the nerves that branch off further down the spine and go to mid and lower spine, organs, and tissues.
