I have been to many chiropractors, physical therapists and masseuses but NUCCA and Dr. Meakim’s intuitive and experience based healing have aligned and remodeled my hips, spine, clavicle, ribs, scapula and head position.

The NUCCA Chiropractic spinal treatment is a gentle and safe form of chiropractic. It focuses on aligning the atlas for long-lasting results.

There are 5 major differences as compared to traditional Chiropractic:

  • Force is much lighter
  • Comfort Level is higher
  • Proof of Correction is higher
  • Stability is higher
  • Accuracy is higher

And for you this means:

  • You feel better faster
  • You hold your alignment longer
  • You reach optimal health sooner

Over 40 years ago, the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) developed a highly advanced procedure that is an extremely precise and very gentle technique. It is unlike any other kind of spinal care you may have experienced with any other type of chiropractor.

When your spine is subjected to stress, it can become misaligned, causing Atlas Subluxation Complex Syndrome (ASC syndrome). With our current lifestyle, we are subject to many more stressors than previous generations and all of them can affect our spines. Using our NUCCA spinal treatment, we correct your misalignment, restoring your body to balance.

Research shows if your first vertebrae (atlas or C1) is not aligned, then any other cracking or popping will not solve the problem. A NUCCA chiropractic spinal treatment is a gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebrae in your neck. It is designed to restore balance to your spine. Even though our primary focus in treatment is your neck, the effect of our correction influences your whole spine and all your body systems. This is because the NUCCA procedure influences one of the highest control centers over body balance: the brain stem and central nervous system. The NUCCA chiropractic spinal treatment restores your skull, spine and hips to their proper position. This takes the pressure off your nerves and allows your body to return to a neutral, balanced position. From this position, any malfunctioning body systems you may have begin to recover and heal.
