After your consultation with the doctor, a complete and thorough NUCCA examination will follow. This will include postural measurements to identify asymmetries (imbalance) and will allow the doctors to determine if they can help you.
If it is determined that you would benefit from our form of care, a series of specific NUCCA x-rays will be taken. The doctor will then analyze these images to determine the specific nature of your upper cervical misalignment. With this information, they will be able to calculate the precise correction needed to realign your head and neck & restore postural alignment.
You will then receive a NUCCA adjustment by the doctor based on the specific calculations from your NUCCA x-rays. This adjustment is an accurate, ‘light touch’, specific method of care, which makes it extremely gentle, safe and effective. There is no twisting or rotating of the head and neck during the correction.
After your NUCCA correction, the doctor will determine the effectiveness of the treatment by measuring structural/postural changes made by the adjustment and taking post adjustment films. We expect you to see and feel the positive changes made after care. It is at this point the doctor will offer advice and recommendations on how to effectively ‘hold’ your alignment. This will be accomplished through potential diet, exercise & any other necessary lifestyle/activities of daily living modifications. In addition, our office works with a network of other healthcare professionals. We are always willing to work together with other healthcare care professionals to facilitate successful outcomes and healthy patients.
