Upcoming NUCCA Regional Workshops

The Gregory Standard 

Join this regional workshop for a recreation of Dr Ralph Gregory’s standards for adjusting, skill development, Biomechanics, his lifelong commitment to researching, learning, training and the maximal reduction of the Atlas Subluxation complex.

The intention of this two-day course:

  • To have a breakthrough in your ability to more effectively correct the atlas subluxation complex.
  • To develop a stronger triceps pull, and a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of the subluxation while developing yourself on a path of mastery in the NUCCA work. 
  • Sports psychologist and athletes agree that performance is approximately 90% mental. This course will address the physical, psychological and ontological components designed to create a foundation of ongoing development as an outcome of one’s natural self-expression. 
  • To create a natural pathway to optimal performance toward the doctor’s own development, discovery and understanding of the ASC, its complexity and correction. 


Skill Level: To attend this workshop, you must be an active candidate in the certification process. If you haven’t been active and would like to attend this course, this is your time to get re-engaged in that process. Board Certified doctors are also welcomed to attend.


  • Attendees need to bring a pre and post x-ray that they have concerns about. 
  • There will also be pre course readings and an application form to be submitted prior to the workshop.

Settleback Sessions – from NUCCA’s Collegiality Committee

Our Settleback Sessions are designed to take the conversations that would normally happen in the hallways and hotel restaurants/bars at NUCCA conferences and make them digital. Our hope is to discuss all things Philosophy, Art, Science, and Business through a variety of speakers! Our desire is that you would leave each call inspired and encouraged both personally and professionally.

THE NEXT SESSION: June 7, 2022

We have another great Settleback Session lined up for Tuesday, June 7 at 5:00 pm PST / 7:00 pm CST for a discussion with Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter. She will be sharing the current happenings at Chiropractic Schools, how to increase attendance at NUCCA conferences, engaging the next generation of NUCCA and UC Chiropractors, and of course will be open to questions!

Date: Tuesday, June 7th at 5:00pm PST / 7:00pm CST

Location: Zoom (access details will be shared with registered attendees the day of the event).

NUCCA Regional Workshops

If you are interested in holding a NUCCA Regional Workshop near you, please click the button below to fill out the online request form. If you have any questions, please reach out to the NUCCA Office at 952-564-3056 or email

Please note: Workshops should take place during the summer or winter months to not interfere with conference attendance. (Summer: June, July, August / Winter: December, January, February)

In consultation with the Education Committee, Dr. Glen Cripe, Dr. Tym Flory, and Dr. Jeff Scholten met regularly in 2018 to conceptualize an enhancement to the methods by which NUCCA doctors are trained.

Regular conference attendance is still crucial, however, the development of kinesthetic, clinical, and research excellence requires the availability of more frequent mentorship opportunities. To this end, we will begin to test the desire of our membership for NUCCA Approved Regional Workshops over the next few years. The first beta version of these workshops occurred in February 2019 in Newport Beach, facilitated by Dr. Glen Cripe. More workshops will be offered regionally in the Winter of 2020. Tentative plans exist for Atlanta, Seattle, LA, Orange County and San Francisco.

If you are a NUCCA Credentialed Instructor, a Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (NUCCA), or have special post graduate expertise and have an interest in understanding more about how you can get involved and provide NUCCA Approved Regional Workshops, please contact Dr. Jeff Scholten, Dr. Tym Flory or NUCCA.
