NUCCA is a very accurate and non-invasive process we use to reduce problems in the nervous system of our patients who have head, neck and other pain. After x-rays we then use mathematical measurements to precisely find where the unique misalignment pattern is for each patient.

When we understand where the misalignment is it allows us to use posture rather than further x-rays to guide alignments. Also, because of the use of NUCCA and specific x-ray measurements there is often less need for repeated visits to our office for our patients saving them time and money.


To get started with the NUCCA process we will determine our patient's needs in a consultation. We learn about our patient's injury or symptoms, take their measurements, and discuss with them if NUCCA is a good method for their pain. NUCCA requires using endorsed measuring tools to evaluate our patient's standing posture. We will also give our patients a physical exam where we can measure the length of both legs to see if they are aligned. After this process, the doctor will determine if their spine is out of balance or misaligned.

The NUUCA spinal corrective procedure is based on measured and tested procedures which have been developed over the past 80 years and continue to be very successful. Some of the areas they have been documented to work well in are migraine headaches, brain function, dizziness, allergies, chronic sinus infections, Fibromyalgia, TMJ, injuries, sciatica and more. Patients reported much fewer days spent in pain with sometimes as few as one NUCCA treatment!

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
