Chronic Neck Pain Natural Relief

Do you suffer from nagging neck pain or a popping or clicking that won’t stop? Modern science and research is showing that a problem with your neck may have much bigger implications.

Modern technology has opened a window to look into many aspects of the human body we could not explore previously. Here are some of the recent breakthroughs regarding neck pain:1-3

  • Misalignment (subluxation) of the bones in the neck particularly at the C1 vertebra (Atlas) can cause abnormal blood flow
  • Subluxation affects the Central Nervous System, specifically the brain decreasing neurological function
  • This may cause the brain to fell pain more than what is actually happening in the body

Chronic Neck pain may only be perceived as something happening locally but having many other seeming unrelated effects throughout the entire body. That catch your neck that just won’t go away may actually be an indication of other conditions.

Chronic Neck Pain Specialist Dr Dan Spinato helps patients in San Diego to get natural relief. As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor specializing in the spine and the integrity of the nervous system, using advanced methods and procedures to locate the exact cause and subluxation of chronic neck pain. When the subluxation is located and measured a custom adjustment is given to each patient. The adjustment is given only when needed without any popping, twisting, or cracking of the neck.

Once the proper alignment of the spine is attained the body will be able to function normally and begin the healing process.4 References: 1. Damadian RV, Chu D.

NUCCA Chiropractic Care

What is NUCCA
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) is an organization of Doctors of Chiropractic dedicated to patient care, education and research.

Spinal health care using the NUCCA procedures focuses on detecting and correcting a small misalignment in the upper neck area. Gentle, non-invasive adjustments don’t require any turning, twisting or popping.

Your upper cervical spine (neck) area influences all areas of your body. Injury or chronic misalignments can cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, low back pain, weakness and more.

The NUCCA technique is currently offered by less than 1% of all the Doctors of Chiropractic.

Before the NUCCA procedure can be performed, I will sit down with you and discuss your history and symptoms. If I determine that NUCCA can help, a thorough examination and x-rays will be done. A complete report of your findings and treatment options will be discussed. 

First adjustment
Precision x-rays are taken of the spine before any treatment begins. The adjustment is performed with the patient lying on their side and the doctor applying a very light pressure behind the earlobe. A full demonstration can be seen on the video above.

The NUCCA procedure can be summed up with 5 major distinctions as compared to traditional Chiropractic:

  • Gentle adjustment to the neck with no turning, twisting or popping.
  • Precision x-rays to measure before and after corrections.
  • Total body posture and balance improvement
  • Greater stability to the spine
  • Hold adjustments longer with fewer visits
