EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC
EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT MEDICINE
NUCCA is a specialty field of chiropractic. In the United States there are fewer than 80 Chiropractors specializing in the NUCCA spinal correction.
The NUCCA doctor performs a safe and painless spinal correction (without twisting or popping) where the head and neck meet-the atlas vertebra. The atlas vertebra is the most freely moveable vertebra in the spine since it is the only one which is not held in place by bony locks. The atlas vertebra is the first vertebra which comes into contact with the brain stem/spinal cord (the body’s communications center). Any kind of stress, tension or pressure on the brain stem can block or impede the flow of the vital messages to the body-just as putting a clamp on a water hose impeded the flow of water.
Chiropractic and medicine agree that every single body function, regardless how large or small, is controlled by electrical and chemical messages that travel back and forth from the brain to all parts of the body at the rate of thousands of messages per second.
The NUCCA spiral correction is engineered to release stress, tension and pressure from around the brain stem, allowing reactivation of the normal flow of messages from the brain to the affected part of the body. Immediately after a correction, muscles begin to relax, blood and oxygen circulation is increased, and the self-healing process begins.
In order to ascertain the individuals misalignment and to determine the necessary adjusting procedure, precision X-rays are taken and analyzed by the doctor. After the patient has been adjusted, another set of X-rays are taken to verify that satisfactory progress has been made.
Once a NUCCA spinal correction has been made and verified by post X-rays additional corrections are not necessary as long as the body remains in alignment and retains the correction.
