Most of the time, we take care of our health only when pains and problems are already at a very advanced stage and no longer bearable (only relieving symptoms).

It even may happen that a particular person is so ill and his/her body is so exhausted that it cannot regenerate. In such a case the correction is useless. For this reason, the Atlas correction shall be seen as a preventative measure and it is wise for it to be checked and corrected in children, even if they do not yet appear as having any problems.

Utilizing a very precise system of analysis developed by the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA), which is based on physics and math, a NUCCA chiropractor is able to calculate the precise reduction pathway and corrective force necessary to gently bring your head, neck and atlas back into alignment. These highly sophisticated calculations allow us to correct this complex and delicate region of the spine with very little force and no “twisting” or “popping” of the neck.

NUCCA Correction

Every patient has a specific atlas misalignment.

The doctor will make specific measurements and direct you to lay down on the table.

The correction feels like a tickle under your ear as you lie on your side as it is very gentle.

As the correction in the upper neck is achieved the entire body is brought back into balance as stress on posture nerves feeding the brain stem is relieved. 

This is why people with problems even in the lower part of their body respond well to the NUCCA correction.

Most practice members notice some relief right after the correction is made, while some notice changes later.

After the correction is completed, the doctor will recheck your posture and take post images to confirm that accurate correction is made.
