NUCCA stands for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. This is a chiropractic technique that works through the correction of small misalignments of the cervical spine. This correction seeks to restore balance to the entire spinal column allowing the nervous system to better communicate with the rest of the body.

All healing in the body is self-healing and helping the nervous system to reach optimum function by removing nervous interference caused by misalignment supports the body’s ability to heal itself.

Although the adjustment is performed on the neck, the entire spinal column can be affected. The upper cervical spine influences the central nervous system and the brain stem, two of the most important control centers in relation to posture.
