What Is the Difference Between NUCCA and General Chiropractic Manipulation?

On this blog we have been discussing the importance of correcting problems in your upper neck with a specialized procedure called NUCCA. At this point you may be wondering can any chiropractor do this type of procedure?

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.

The NUCCA Doctor takes extremely precise x-rays of the head and neck to determine the severity and type of the spinal misalignment instead of relying on guesswork.  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. It’s not about being adjusted, thousands of times. It’s about getting the spine back into a normal and balanced position and keeping it that way for as long as possible.

General chiropractic manipulation is a lot like vague directions. Sometimes you will get to your destination but many times you will miss the mark.

The specific NUCCA procedure is like having a preprogrammed GPS, in that circumstance, you’re much more likely to get the results that you were looking for.

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.

If you are ready to see if you could be helped by this scientifically proven procedure, then schedule a no obligation consultation with Dr. Sherwood.
