Does NUCCA Chiropractic Really Work?

NUCCA Chiropractic

Most of us today are taking a more proactive approach to our health. Instead of just blindly accepting a diagnosis and suggested treatments of conventional, more invasive medicine, more and more people are looking for more natural alternatives which brings us to NUCCA Chiropractic. If you knew there was an all-natural, side effect, pain free way to lower your blood pressure, relieve pain and even address depression and many other conditions, wouldn’t you want to find out more about it?

The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) centers its research on the connection between optimal health and the upper cervical spine. Research has shown that issues in the cervical spine can lead to a progressive degeneration of the body, causing physiological, structural, pathological and neurological symptoms. It was also found that if a spinal misalignment is detected, it can be corrected, returning the sufferer to good health and back to enjoying normal activities. A growing number of people consider NUCCA to be an insurance policy for a healthy life and properly functioning nervous system.

What’s Involved in the NUCCA Approach?

A NUCCA chiropractor takes exact three-dimensional x-rays of the upper neck vertebrae to determine alignment and then mathematically analyzes the x-rays to determine your unique misalignment pattern. Next the NUCCA Doctor uses a very gentle touch to correct the misalignment. The patient lies on their side on a special table designed to increase the amount of leverage generated by the correction. The NUCCA chiropractor places their hands gently behind the ear at a specific angle derived from the x-rays. The Doctor will then apply light, pain free pressure gently moving the upper neck back into it’s normal alignment position. After the initial correction there is no guess work into whether or not the correction was effective. The NUCCA chiropractor will take 2 post x-rays in order to ensure that the adjustment worked the way that it was supposed to.

Does NUCCA Really Work?

A recent study of NUCCA chiropractic involving patients with hypertension indicated that it can substantially lower blood pressure without taking prescription medications. A study led by Dr George Bakris with University of Chicago Medical Center studied 50 patients that suffered from hypertension. Half of the group received the real NUCCA adjustment while the other received a placebo NUCCA adjustment. After just one treatment, the participants who received the actual chiropractic treatment exhibited a drop in blood pressure of 17 points. Even more impressive, the numbers stayed down for 8 weeks.

Additional Benefits of NUCCA Chiropractic Care

While case reports may not be as convincing as clinical studies (like the one mentioned above), NUCCA has been noted to address a wide range of medical issues including back pain, neck pain, arthritis, migraines, ear infections, hypertension, Meniere’s disease (tinnitus) and seizures and there’s a good chance that additional benefits will be found in the future.

Are the Results of NUCCA Chiropractic Permanent?

Once an upper cervical spine misalignment has been established due to an accident or injury to the head neck or spine muscles, ligaments, tendons and other structures begin to break down when they are locked into a stressed position. Once the misalignment is corrected and the body has adequate time to heal the damaged tissues, some patients have remained in alignment for months or even years and enjoyed long term overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, life is full of stresses that can lead to a recurrence of a misalignment in which case additional care may be required. The goal of NUCCA chiropractic care is for you to stay in alignment as long as possible. It is not being adjusted that keeps you healthy, it is being in alignment, only then can the nervous system work as it was designed.

Bottom line, NUCCA chiropractic is a powerful, natural alternative for improving overall health and while it may not be the answer for all health issues, for the problems it can address, it has a proven, high success rate, is safe, non-invasive and painless.
