Welcome to National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association
We restore and optimize health by precisely aligning the head and neck to sustainably balance the body.
What is NUCCA?
NUCCA reduces pain and suffering and is the trusted source for structural solutions to unresolved health problems. We believe the alignment of the head and neck is important enough to deserve a dedicated doctor.
This website is devoted to the life-changing impact countless patients, doctors, and students are able to realize as a result of impeccable upper cervical care and the profound healing effects of the NUCCA process.
This process has been developed over 5 decades of clinical observations and research. The focus of NUCCA is on the biomechanics of the upper cervical spine (neck) and its influence on the central nervous system and brain stem function. Appropriate management of this relationship can help restore body balance supporting optimal spinal health.
