NUCCA Chiropractic Care

What is NUCCA?

Dr. Portela adjusting patientThe NUCCA technique encompasses a gentle and specific correction with the goal to achieve and maintain your body in a balanced state at Balanced Spine Center.

Nerves in your spinal column are very sensitive to pressure and stress. When nerves are compromised, they cannot conduct their normal functions throughout the body. Compromised nerve function decreases overall human function.

A balanced spine gives the nervous system and other body parts the opportunity to heal and ultimately restore health. The NUCCA procedure focuses on detecting and correcting misalignments of the top bone of the neck also known as the ATLAS bone. Improper biomechanical relationship of the atlas can lead to musculoskeletal imbalance which promotes a vulnerable skeletal structure. This cascade of events leads to bodily imbalance, inducing damage to tissues and joints and other vital components of the human body.

Understanding Your Unique Misalignment

The process begins by looking at your health history including any past traumas, motor vehicle accidents, surgeries, and diagnostic tests, including x-rays. Spinal misalignments can often present themselves as conditions or symptoms. Some of these include but are not limited to:

  • Arm Pain
  • Asymmetry (Ex: long leg)
  • Blood Pressure
  • Cervical Myelopathy
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
