NUCCA Regional Workshop – The Gregory Standard

We’re excited to announce a NUCCA Regional Workshop with Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, Jr. Join him to recreate Dr. Ralph Gregory’s “way of being” for adjusting, skill development, biomechanics, as well as his lifelong commitment to researching, learning, training and the maximal reduction of the Atlas Subluxation complex.

The Gregory Standard is not just a post measure on an x-ray. It is a place to come from in one’s personal development and commitment toward the delivery of patient care which targets the maximal reduction of the C-1 subluxation complex. It can be said that it is a stand one takes for their own ongoing growth, values, contribution and self-expression in the NUCCA work. 

The intention of this three-day course:

  • To have a breakthrough in your ability to more effectively correct the atlas subluxation complex.
  • To develop an effective 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. 

Space for this workshop is limited to 16 doctors, so get registered today!

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.

We do not have any current session scheduled, but please reach out to with topic ideas! 


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.
