Will NUCCA chiropractic benefit me?

NUCCA, the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association, is an advanced chiropractic technique that benefits anyone who has suffered at least one spinal injury. 

Some can definitively say they have had several injuries, while others have experienced injuries unknowingly. 

Common injuries include: Concussion, whiplash, car accidents, falling, sports growing up, and repetitive motion or birth trauma. 

When the spine (especially the head and the neck) is injured, the craniocervical junction (CCJ) will commonly misalign and compromise the nerve flow from the brain to the rest of the body. 

The only way to definitively know whether you have an upper cervical CCJ misalignment is to have a NUCCA doctor perform a thorough assessment for you.

What problem does NUCCA solve?

NUCCA doctors work to restore your CCJ misalignment using a precise, gentle, non-invasive spinal adjusting technique, which helps to normalize . . .

Step 3 of NUCCA Care

Dr. Burt will then know if you are a candidate for NUCCA chiropractic, and will proceed to take specific, upper cervical x-rays.

NUCCA’s unique x-ray series is measured down to 1/10th of a degree using advanced spinal software, showing Dr. Burt exactly how to correct your specific upper cervical CCJ misalignment.

Immediately following your adjustment, a series of x-rays are taken again and compared to your first step, ensuring Dr. Burt knows the appropriate method when adjusting you in the future.

NUCCA does not take x-rays every visit.

When will I see results?

Although every case is different, some feel immediate relief while others require more time.

You may know how long you’ve had symptoms, but you may NOT know how long your injury has been there. 

A general rule is for every 1 year you’ve been misaligned, it takes about 1 month to recover.

So, if you were injured 5 years ago, it will take around 5 months to recover. 

Healing is a process that takes time and is unique to you.

Dr. Burt will provide better insight into what your recovery process looks like.
