NUCCA


Spinal health care using the NUCCA recommended procedures focus on correcting a small misalignment in the upper neck area.  Gentle, non-invasive adjustments help to improve conditions in patients who are experiencing upper neck area symptoms.

Your upper cervical spine (neck) area influences all areas of  your body.  Injury or chronic neck pain can create weakness, tingling in your extremities, imbalance, numbness, headaches, and more.

NUCCA treatments help restore balance and strength. The NUCCA technique has been practiced more than 40 years and can improve multiple areas of your bodies function.

NUCCA is a Chiropractic specialty in which we measure the exact misalignment of the spine. With this information we can determine how much pressure there is on the nervous system, especially the brainstem. The brain and the body (organs, muscles, joints, etc.) constantly communicate through the spinal cord. If there is pressure on the spinal cord in any area, it can prevent the body from functioning at 100%.

Before the NUCCA procedure can be performed the doctor will sit down with the patient to find out what their needs are (a consultation is always free). If they think that NUCCA can help, a thorough examination and x-rays (if necessary) will be done. A complete report of your findings will be given on the next day. The doctor will explain what and why it is wrong, whether your spine can be fixed or just patched, how long it will take to get well and the fees.

First adjustment

Three-dimensional x-rays are taken of the spine to determine the amount of misalignment within millimeters and degrees. With this information the doctor can determine how to correct the problem. After the x-rays are analyzed, the NUCCA procedure is performed. The procedure is a gentle pressure applied near the level of the earlobe in a specific direction to move the spinal structures back into their proper position.

Over all, the NUCCA difference can be summed up in 5 major distinctions as compared to traditional Chiropractic:

• Non-force adjustment to the neck with no cracking or popping
• Precision x-rays to measure before and after corrections
• Total body posture and balance improvement
• Greater stability to the spine
• Hold adjustments longer with fewer visits

Bio-Cranial Therapy was developed in 1988 by Dr. Robert Boyd and is based on the research conducted at the International Bio Cranial Academy located in the United Kingdom.

Chiropractic therapy has always been responsible for bringing the body back into alignment – make sense? If the body is aligned, and we do not get reinjured, why do we need to continue having treatments?

There has been a missing link – the cranial bones – 22 to be exact. When the cranium and the spine are not in sync, the body’s other processes get out of sync – hence the cyclical need for chiropractic alignment. Why do we need to keep going for more treatments? This part of chiropractic has always been a bit mysterious and doctors of chiropractic medicine have been at a loss as to what to say when the problem has to continually be re-adjusted.

For the first time in the history of chiropractic therapy, a new treatment methodology tying the cranial bones to the spinal alignment is available – Bio-Cranial Therapy. There are 22 movable bones in the head and their alignment to the spine is a lot more critical than anyone guessed. Then figuring out the best way to align and adjust was worked out to provide the best possible wellness treatment- bio-cranial alignment.

“When a client comes for treatment at San Diego Chiropractic Health Center, I examine for the following areas: neurological weakness, interference and resistance. These three factors drive muscle and nervous system function. Most people have a weak side and when someone is in pain, e.g. their hip, back, neck, and so forth; I know it is because the body is straining to be aligned – the pressure to tip to one side puts major strain on the nervous system and the muscles have to work overtime to try and keep balanced and maintain and upright position. This strain is what induces pain. The treatment starts with aligning the back, spine, hips and other large adjustments and then we complete the process with the cranial alignment to the bio systems of the body” says Dr. Dan Spinato.

Why does Bio-Cranial therapy work? 80% of our nervous system (bio) is controlled from above the neck. That is why Bio Cranial Therapy is so effective. It releases the old traumas from the head (cranium).

Interviewing some of Dr. Dan Spinato’s clients with only a finite series of 11 Bio-Cranial treatments we learned that the clients were amazed. Experience with chiropractic therapy typically is seen as ongoing…

Laurie said “With a fused ankle, one leg shorter than the other by a half inch, chiropractic was to be a life-long therapy on a weekly basis but after 11 bio-cranial treatments she was amazed at the prognosis of actual improved physical wellness, back pain completely gone and even after 6 weeks, no bio-cranial adjustments necessary!”

XYZ said “I was heading for very risky neck vertebrae surgery and asked to try the bio-cranial therapy before this last resort. 11 treatments of Bio-Cranial therapy and the client could cancel the surgery!”
