NUCCA Chiropractic Procedure

NUCCA Chiropractic Procedure

The NUCCA procedure is very different than what would come to mind for most people when they think of chiropractic. The procedure starts with high-quality x-ray equipment that must be laser aligned to ensure accuracy and decrease distortion of images. The patient must be placed accurately for each image and then the practitioner must analyze the films accurately. The analysis will inform the practitioner how the misalignment occurred and provide a customized vector (individualized for each patient) to correct the misalignment. The practitioner will also take two post x-rays (again with accurate placement and analysis) to verify that a correction or suitable reduction to the misalignment has been made.

It is the misalignment of the upper cervical spine from the vertical axis as well as the head and pelvis that creates the neurological insult called the vertebral subluxation complex. In NUCCA terminology it is referred to the Atlas Subluxation Complex Syndrome which describes the spinal misalignment, the neurological insult and the variety of symptoms that may be present.

A possible explanation for the relief of the conditions is that upper cervical misalignments may alter neural function by causing longitudinal traction (think stretching) and transverse traction (think twisting) of the upper cervical spinal cord and lower brain stem. Even if this tractioning is not pathological, stretching of axons decreases their diameter which will decrease the transmission of nerve impulses. This will decrease the homeostasis of the person as a whole.

A correction or suitable reduction of the misalignment will reduce this tractioning and provide relief and improve the overall function of the person.
