San Diego’s Best NUCCA Chiropractors

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.

San Diego Spinal Decompression Doctors

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive alternative that has FDA clearance for the treatment of low back pain and sciatica due to disc herniations, degenerative disc disease and posterior facet syndrome.

Our San Diego chiropractors provide relief for chronic neck and back pain, disc bulges, disc herniations, pinched nerves, degenerative disc and joint disease, spinal stenosis and sciatica. This state-of-the-art technology is gentle and non-surgical. Most of our patients take the time during their session to fully relax and even take a short nap.

The doctors are knowledgeable, personable and extremely helpful in determining the correct procedures for each patient. My neck pain and numbness are all but gone after the treatments. The office staff is terrific and I’d suggest this office, and the NUCCA process, to anyone who hasn’t found relief elsewhere.

I used to go to chiropractors and get my neck and back crack and supposedly "adjusted"for years. I will never do that again. I had no idea the kind of damage it was doing to my body. A girlfriend of mine told me about NUCCA And I found Intouch Chiropractic. They have helped me so much with neck pain, shoulder pain. I couldn't move my left arm in a circle and I had pain. In 3 months my shoulder pain is gone and I can move it around pluse my neck pain is 80% better. I still have some work to do but I can't tell you the amount of stress has disappeared due to fixing the problems and not masking it. I'm very grateful for Intouch Chiropractic.💜 Definitely going to keep going.

Finding Dr Young and NUCCA has been life changing for me. NUCCA is incredible in and of itself, but it is Dr Young and his team that really make it extraordinary. They are professional, kind, and compassionate people. They really take the time to get to know you and work alongside you to help you reach your health goals. Dr Young is highly skilled and he and his front office staff are truly just great human beings. I would give them 100 stars if I could!

This is my second time reviewing Intouch chiropractic. They were extremely helpful in everyway and the treatment made a world of difference! Unfortunately, I relocated in the middle of my treatments. Without hesitation, Jocelyn, not only gave me a prorated refund but sent a handwritten thank you card. You will not find better customer service! I would highly recommend Intouch Chiropractic to even my closest friends and family.

Great upper cervical chiropractic clinic. They are all very friendly and professional. Dr. Young and Dr. Tapia are both experts in their fields and I have made good progress in their care. The x-rays that they take are very clear and they take more than just one or two - more like 8-10 maybe more. It was nice to see what has been causing me so much pain. I highly recommend them.

Intouch is my go-to place for chiropractic. They are caring, professional, and highly skilled. There is no neck cracking, just precise X-rays and a light adjustment that you barely feel - but definitely notice the change afterwards. What more could you ask for? This goes beyond pain - I just feel better overall afterwards. I have been to many chiropractic offices in the past. While each offers their own benefit, I have to say Intouch is probably my top choice.

The power of NUCCA still amazes me - my frequent migraines have subsided and in general, my body seems to be functioning at a higher level. I feel like I have a new lease on life! Do yourself and your body a favor by trying this pain-free method of adjustment, there is truly nothing to lose and so much to gain!

I've dealt with chronic neck pain for over 2 years. Intouch diagnosed my issue using x-rays and I had my first treatment the first day I walked in. It's only been about 1 month now and can feel encouraging improvement. Intouch has helped increase my quality of life. Don't hesitate to call and set an appointment. When you walk in you will be met by Sharon and Jocelyn, who make you feel like you're out with a couple of friends. Dr. Tapia and Dr. Young help you understand where your pain is coming from and are with you every step of the way. If you're reading this, call. Soon you'll be giving you're 5 star review as well.

I’ve been to many chiropractic care for my lower back sciatica problems and no one seemed to help except doctor young. If only i knew of this place before hand, i would’ve felt better a long time ago. I injured my back a year ago causing me to have my L5 disc bulging hitting my sciatic nerve. I’ve had 2 flare ups within that year so i felt fragile. Couldn’t do certain workouts or activities which made me feel helpless. I’m very active and love to do outdoors activities such as running, jump roping and other types of workouts. After the first adjustment, i can already feel the difference. I slept better at night, my posture is better and I’m getting my strength back overall. I’m so thankful that Dr. Young provides workouts for you to strengthen your lower back. He also does progress reports which helps you see your progress. That’s what i loved coz he wants to see you progress and get better. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!

I've been coming here for neck pain, back pain, and shoulder pain after a regular chiropractor hurt me even more. These doctors don't crunch your bones like regular chiropractors do. The doctors at Intouch Chiropractic align your neck with the rest of your body to alleviate all your pains. I've felt better focus, less headaches and better digestion as well as less titinus and of course my other pains I mentioned earlier have receded significantly. But make sure you also supplement your body with the the right Vitamins and minerals that your body needs in order to help your body heal more efficiently. In my case I was iron and vitamin D deficient, as well as other minerals, and once I started supplying my body with the right supplements along with Intouch Chiropractic care, my body started healing much faster. So do some bloodwork to see your deficiencies and go to Intouch Chiropractic and I promise you won't regret it.

Tried everything else out there and decided to try them after I met Dr Tapia. Long story short they are a big part of my life and I am migraine free!!!!! Wouldn’t be where I’m at today in my career with out them. Joselyn is always so happy! Puts a smile on my face every time I come in. thank you all very much!

I have been suffering from neck pain due to pinch nerve for a few years and recently the pain have become worse and I finally decided to seek chiropractic help. I was able to get an appointment with Dr Young right on the same day when I called the front desk, Joselyn, who has been very helpful in coordinating my appointment and the following visits based on my working schedules. I was very impressed by Dr young ability to identify the cause of the pain and address all my questions and concerns. He took an x-ray on the same day and have the results and complete treatments plans ready the next day. Then Dr. Tapia started performing NUCCA adjustment to help with my alignment and also put me on neck decompression machine to alleviate the pinch nerve while promote healing to the surrounding tissues. Dr Tapia cares a lot for her patients. She is very attentive to details while performing adjustment, always encouraging and provide great comfort to the patients here. It has been only a month since I started my treatment here and I have noticed major improvement on my neck. The tingling sensations of my hands are gone and the range of movement of my neck has improved. I am confident that under the professional care of Dr Tapia, Dr. Young and Joselyn I will be fully recovered from my chronic neck pain. They genuinely care for their patients, believe in what they do, and great at their profession. These makes Intouch Chiropractic a great place for chiropractic treatment!

I came across Intouch Chiropractic through an ad on Facebook. In which I'm so glad I did! I have a really serious back Injury and severe scoliosis. So, I've been to my fair share of Chiropractors. This is honestly THE BEST chiropractic office I've ever experienced. Dr Tapia and Dr young are incredible! As well as their front desk assistant. They are all so friendly and welcoming. Dr Tapia has been treating me, and I've never had such caring chiropractor! Before she started treating me she carefully took the time to study all my x-rays, mri's etc. U like a ton of other chiropractors, they just don't seem to care as much. I will forever be a client. They truly make you feel like family! I highly recommend them to everyone!

Dr. Tapia was so caring and really took time to listen to me. Nucca treatments are very gentle, completely different than any other chiropractic treatments. I have noticed a big improvement in just 2 weeks. I’ve been to many different chiropractors over the years and I would recommend everyone try this chiropractic care even if other chiropractors have not been successful in alleviating your pain.

I was always really nervous about chiropractic care. Scared of maybe injuring my back and even more.The quality of the care at this place, set my mind at ease. This place is amazing! They really cater to the needs of every individual patient. After a few weeks my back feels stronger and I feel an all around shift in the way my body feels walking around.

For over 25 years I have suffered with chronic daily headaches, migraines and neck pain. I have tried numerous treatments such as acupunture, traditional chiropractors and medication with no results. With Dr. Tapia and Dr. Young's knowledge and expertise I no longer have daily headaches! My neck pain as a result of 3 previous accidents is gone. Both Dr. Tapia and Dr. Young are extremely caring, personable and go the extra steps to ensure their patients' well-being. I'm very grateful for the healing I have experienced which has allowed me to enjoy a more active lifestyle.In addition, the office staff is very friendly and welcoming.

Intouch Chiropractic is a wonderful practice. I have had experience with chiropractors before and Intouch has a drastically different approach to chiropractic adjustments than any other chiropractor I've been to before. Intouch chiropractic is especially beneficial in my case where the rough adjustments of traditional chiropractics could cause more harm then good. I highly recommend them especially if you have any sort of disability that would make traditional chiropractics hazardous.

She likes to get to the bottom and roots of your health problems. I was suffering from dizziness, symptoms, balance problems and she was able to correct most of them including migraines. It’s amazing how she was able to find diagnosis that typical doctors overlook. The staff is amazing, Joselyn is great at customer service, she’s very efficient and dedicated to her job making sure that patients are well take care of. I fully recommend this place.

Their personal skills and knowledge is incredible. The facility itself is immaculate and spacious. Both admin girls at the front desk are very welcoming and accommodating. The energy and vibe from all who work there is infectious. I would highly recommend this practice, which covers a broad range of services.

I had been dealing with lower back and hip flexor pain for 10 years. I had been through many physical therapy treatment plans, followed different workout plans, and did every stretch and program that was recommended. Each of which I did consistently for months, not just a couple days. I had zero relief. Dr. Young introduced me to Nucca chiropractic care; after my first visit the pain had subsided dramatically. Within 1 week of adjustments, not only did I feel great with no pain, but I was able to lift heavier, train harder, and recover better without any negative side effects as had been happening for years. I cycle an average of 10 hours per week; my power balance had been 53/47 for years. After less than 1 month of seeing Dr Young my power balance is now consistently at 51/49; if you cycle you know that’s a significant difference. I also feel significantly better on the bike, even on back to back days over 4-5 hours per day. I can’t express the gratitude that I have for Dr Young. Go see Dr Young; his care has been a blessing to me, and I’m confident you’ll feel the same. Thank you Dr Young!
