What is NUCCA and Why is it Different?
The region of the upper neck acts as a gateway for the brain to communicate with the body, and as such, requires a dedicated analysis to address problems in this area. Joint misalignments between the head and the neck can interrupt the flow of information between the brain and the body. This can have several effects, from postural distortion to blood pressure fluctuations and changes in other bodily functions.
NUCCA is a chiropractic technique that is dedicated to the analysis and correction of these types of misalignments. This gentle procedure, which feels like nothing more than slight pressure behind the ear, works to realign the head and neck, reducing stress on the nervous system and improving communication between the body and the brain. This allows muscle action to return to a normal balance and restore proper posture and joint function.
The NUCCA procedure incorporates principles of physics, biomechanics, and neurology. It involves an in-depth postural examination and a specialized set of x-rays images specifically of the upper neck. Using the data acquired, NUCCA doctors are able to calculate how to correct upper neck misalignments in a way that is customized to an individual’s unique anatomy.
By correcting upper neck misalignments, communication interference between the brain and the body is removed, allowing you to stand straighter, move better, and live a more functional life. To learn more about NUCCA visit www.vitalposture.com.
