NUCCA Chiropractor St George Utah

How NUCCA Works

When the Spine is Misaligned

  • Muscles of the body become unbalanced, leading to unequal pulling on spinal vertebrae and causing spinal stress
  • There is a twist in the pelvis and hips, creating the appearance of a “short leg”
  • Unequal weight is carried on each half of the body, leading to joint aches and pains, and the body breaks down faster on one side that the other
  • Finally blood flow to important areas like the spinal cord and brain stem are affected. This can negatively impact internal organs systems, creating multiple and often confusing symptoms.

After Upper Cervical Correction

  • Spinal Alignment is restored
  • The spine regains motion and flexibility
  • Tight and painful muscles relax
  • Hips, pelvis, and weight become balanced
  • Pain is relieved

NUCCA Chiropractic Visits

NUCCA Chiropractic 1st Visit.

Postural Assessment Stage:

Prior to beginning treatment or care, and at the beginning of each regular visit: Your posture is evaluated and weight distribution is measured. These are signs that you have a misalignment.

Following postural assessment, precision x-rays will be taken to confirm if you indeed have a misalignment. This also rules out other more serious conditions.  After the X-rays are taken, the Doctor will begin the Diagnosis on the condition and type of adjustment you will require for correction.

Following postural assessment, and x-ray diagnosis; We will now discuss a treatment plan tailored to your correction needs.
The Doctor will construct an individualized care plan and treatment time. The cost of the care plan once agreed upon will be divided into monthly payments covering the length of treatment.

Misalignment Correction Stage:

During your second visit, The doctor will perform the first treatment, or NUCCA Adjustment. Using precision positioning and a gentle, pressure, the doctor will adjust your upper cervical area, and reposition your spine into a more ideal position.

The Affects of the treatment will be discussed and addressed at this time.  As each individual, and type of misalignment correction will have different affects as the body corrects and heals.

Adjustment Confirmation X-Rays Stage:

On your second visit, and after the initial NUCCA Adjustment, Post adjustment x-rays will be taken to provide information about how your body responded to the adjustment. These post X-rays will also tell us whether any fine-tuning is needed in future adjustments.

Maintain Correction Stage:

Your next office will begin the follow up visits and corrections that will be agreed upon and outlined in your NUCCA Care Plan. As previously mentioned, the prescribed Care Plan will be determined by the individual needs of the patient and the cost will be divided into monthly payments over the treatment period. 

Our goal is to get you body to maintain a correction as long as possible. Over time, adjustments will hold for longer periods of time allowing our patients to be seen less and less with for future adjustments.

Once your NUCCA Care Plan has been completed, if your individual need requires further treatment to maintain spinal correction, one of our Annual Family Wellness Care Plans can be discussed with the doctor.

How is NUCCA Chiropractic Different

The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association or ‘NUCCA’ (pronounced ‘new-ka’) is an organization and highly specialized chiropractic technique leading the way in understanding how the upper neck can impact spinal alignment, posture, chronic pain, migraines & headaches.

NUCCA is a specific chiropractic technique that specializes in adjusting the upper cervical spine. 

The main differences of NUCCA, is that it is GENTLE, SPECIFIC , and longer LASTING than traditional chiropractic. With NUCCA we DON’T GUESS! We take x-rays that allows us to measure accurately a misalignment of the ATLAS down to the DEGREE. Alignment of atlas will allow the entire spine and body to correct itself. The Correction is not the typical crack and pop, but instead just a light pressure. You don’t have to push hard if you know EXACTLY wear and how to push. With a corrected misalignment, the body innately heals.
