NUCCA Spinal Care: Upper Cervical Care
San Diego chiropractors, Dr. Devin Young and Dr. Jeanett Tapia, specialize in the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association’s (NUCCA) protocols. NUCCA is a gentle, scientific and specific form of spinal care that does not require any cracking, popping, or twisting of your spine. Less than 300 providers practice NUCCA worldwide, and it is considered a specialty within the chiropractic profession. Our doctors use this unique approach to remove stress from your spine to help you with symptoms such as migraines, headaches, vertigo, TMJ problems, neck pain, back pain, sciatica and post-concussion syndrome. A NUCCA adjustment focuses on the first bone in your neck, also known as atlas or C1. This area of you spine is the most neurologically important part of your back. A controlled contact and a gentle touch to the first bone in the neck is made to restore balance to the spine. Although the primary focus of the correction is the neck, the adjustment influences the entire spine restoring body balance.
