The NUCCA Treatment
NUCCA treatment is a gentler type of chiropractic care that emphasizes long-term success rather than immediate pain reduction. As it works to relieve the pressure on the brainstem and spinal cord, it gives balance back to the rest of the spine, alleviating pain and allowing the body to heal naturally.
The central nervous system (CNS) runs through the spine, transmitting neurological signals throughout the body. Subluxation, the misalignment of spinal vertebrae, can cause severe damage and distress to the CNS that can manifest in various conditions.
NUCCA treatment works to provide a global solution to back pain. When we find the cause of your pain and correct the misalignment between the head and the neck, the rest of the body will follow suit and correct itself. NUCCA treatment will take the pressure off of the CNS and the nerves, giving your body the ability to return the spine, pelvis and skull to their natural positions. The NUCCA approach corrects subluxation and provides relief for various health issues, from chronic pain to Multiple Sclerosis.
When you turn to Upper Cervical Chiropractic of New York, PC for NUCCA treatment in White Plains, our medical professionals will develop a plan to help you start living pain-free.
The NUCCA technique is performed by the doctors of Upper Cervical Chiropractic of New York, PC (UCC) in a scientific manner by using X-rays and other imaging equipment to objectively correct the Atlas vertebrae in the precise direction and amount necessary.
Imaging tools provide our team members with a blueprint to the spine misalignment specific to each patient so we can tailor their treatments.
We will collect imaging during your initial visit to see how exactly your spine and neck are being impacted. After your first adjustment, we will take imaging again and do so periodically throughout treatment to monitor progress.
Our imaging equipment is available in the office, so you don’t have to go back and forth scheduling visits at third-party medical facilities.
Your First Visit
On your first visit, you’ll be greeted by warm and friendly reception staff members. They’ll answer any questions and get you checked in. You will be asked to fill out a variety of new patient forms, which you can find online to complete before visiting us to save time.
You will then meet with one of our doctors to discuss your life, your pain and how it affects you. Following this consultation, your doctor will perform a comprehensive wellness exam and take X-rays to find the specific cause of your pain.
Your doctor will then schedule a follow-up within a couple of days to discuss solutions and steps to relieve your pain.
Subluxation is the misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine. These misalignments can happen over time due to genetics, chronic bad posture, or gradually from other injuries that force one side of the body to subtly overcompensate. It can also happen from acute injuries in sports, vehicle collisions, or accidents.
When subluxation occurs, a variety of symptoms can arise from the pressure put on the body and nervous system. Pinched nerves, numbness, and pain only scratch the surface of what Subluxation can do to the body.
The NUCCA technique can help resolve subluxation and the symptoms associated with it. Below is a non-exhaustive list of conditions we treat.
