The NUCCA correction requires NO FORCEFUL TWISTING, POPPING, OR CRACKING, and is safe for all ages. It is an amazingly comfortable and surprisingly gentle approach to the true physical balance that all chiropractic procedures should strive for, but it is only available through properly trained NUCCA chiropractic physicians. As an organization NUCCA was founded in 1966 by Dr. Ralph Gregory.
NUCCA is an extremely gentle and safe form of chiropractic care, with a focus on permanent results. The NUCCA procedure was designed to correct the entire spine back to a balanced, unstressed position. This repositioning reactivates the transmission of healing messages from the brain to the affected part of the body (via the nervous system) so the body's natural self-healing process can begin.
As soon as the NUCCA Correction is made and body imbalance is restored, IMMEDIATELY, muscles begin to relax, blood and oxygen circulation is increased, healing messages are transmitted from the brain to the affected area and the body's self healing process begins.
Compared to other forceful manipulation treatments, like physical therapy, osteopathic or chiropractic procedures, these very gentle NUCCA corrections are extremely comfortable as you lay on your side as if taking a nap. The short, relaxing correction takes place at the top of your spine at the base of your skull.
