NUCCA vs. General Chiropractic Manipulation
So a common question that people ask is what is the difference between NUCCA and general chiropractic manipulation?
The NUCCA Correction is very precise and very gentle without any of the popping, cracking, or twisting of the spine involved with general chiropractic manipulation. NUCCA spinal care is focused on providing a patient with fast relief, maximum recovery and long lasting results.
The NUCCA Doctor will take extremely precise x-rays of the head and neck to determine the severity and type of the spinal misalignment. The Doctor will then analyze the x-rays and determine a specific upper cervical correction formula that will work to bring your spine back into alignment. After the first upper cervical correction the Doctor will take two post x-rays to determine the response of the body to the initial correction. After the initial evaluation the doctor will be able to estimate the number of corrections needed and the length of time necessary for the spine to be stabilized.
Wouldn’t You Rather Have a GPS?
Here’s an example, if you asked me for directions to my house and I said go down to the corner turn right then go a little while and turn left and then go some more and it should be down there somewhere on the right! What are the chances that you are going to make it to my house? Not very good…what if instead I said go out and get in my car…I have a GPS already set to direct you from my office to my house…now what are the chances of getting to my house? Much higher!!! That is just like specific NUCCA care vs. general chiropractic manipulation…the precision and specificity with which we work allows us to get more predictable results in the correction of the spine. It is spinal engineering…physics, mathematics and biomechanics applied to the spine.
