NUCCA in New York NY

Chiropractic New York NY Woman with Neck Pain

NUCCA, or National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association, is an organization dedicated to teaching and practicing upper cervical specific chiropractic care, of which there are many techniques that date back to the beginnings of the Chiropractic profession. The upper cervical specific is concerned with adjusting and setting the Atlas (a.k.a. C1 vertebra), which is the first vertebra under the skull at the top of the neck where the brainstem is located. The brainstem is the physiologic control center, controlling, regulating, and organizing all the body's vital functions such as heart rate, respiration, digestion, immune control, reflex arcs, balance and coordination, sleep, healing functions, and much more. See how our New York NY NUCCA chiropractor can help you!

Your Atlas can become misaligned and compress the brainstem from a combination of injuries and repetitive postural stress. This misalignment and subsequent compression can contribute to conditions such as low back pain, TMJ (jaw) pain, fatigue, neck pain, anxiety, headaches, migraines, stenosis, disc compression, disc bulges, disc herniations, disc degeneration, scoliosis, insomnia, fatigue, sinus problems, allergies, tingling and numbness, radiculopathy, arthritis, knee pain, wrist pain, ankle pain, shoulder pain, and even nausea and vertigo are commonly seen with upper neck misalignments (a.k.a. Subluxations).

We live our lives in gravity and everything works from the top-down and inside-out. Misalignments/Subluxations structurally increase the weight of your head throwing it off balance and creating compensation patterns throughout the rest of your spine. The pressure on this area of the central nervous system can create a host of acute and chronic health problems, as well as create structural imbalances such as a tilted head, uneven shoulders, spinal curvatures, uneven hips, and a short leg. It is actually very rare for a patient to have a structurally short leg. It is most commonly due to the body being off balance from spinal misalignments in the upper neck. Once a patient in New York NY begins the correction process and gets adjusted the patient's legs will eventually balance out and symptoms steadily improve. Upper cervical specific adjustments are a gentle and unique form of care that can restore your head, spine, and hips to their naturally optimal alignment.

NUCCA Care in New York NY

Even though an upper cervical specific adjustment at Village Chiropractic NYC is focused on your neck, its effects on the entire spine and body and is extremely precise. It is unlike the more active Chiropractic adjusting techniques because there is no cracking, popping, or twisting of the spine. An upper cervical adjustment stimulates the healing process by using gentle and comfortable (light touch) adjustments on your neck behind your ear to re-align your spinal joints. We focus on the alignment of the Atlas bone which surrounds and protects the brainstem. Remember that Atlas misalignments/Subluxations interrupt the vital communication between your body and your brain, resulting in pain, tension, stress, reduced healing, and uncomfortable or debilitating symptoms. Repetitive postural stress, childhood falls, sports injuries, illnesses, birth traumas, or car accidents can cause upper cervical neck misalignments resulting in central nervous system dysfunction and many common acute and chronic health conditions.
