A gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebrae in the neck is designed to restore balance to the spine. The NUCCA doctor focuses on the relationship of the head to the neck. The atlas must be in line with the head, as well as the vertebrae below. Spinal injuries, including the birth process, can misalign these structures resulting in postural imbalance, pelvic distortion, and leg length disparity.
NUCCA is very effective in reducing postural distortion. A balanced spine has an opportunity to heal. Research studies have shown that when body balance is restored, the body enters a healing cycle that alleviates pain and symptoms. The upper cervical correction is designed to reposition the weight of the head (10-14 lbs) over the center of the neck to restore the body balance. Recovery continues as long as the correction holds and optimal spinal balance is maintained.
