Dr. Ralph Gregory | The Founder of NUCCA
We owe our ability to practice NUCCA to Dr. Ralph R. Gregory. Without him, the NUCCA work would not exist. As a young kid, Dr. Gregory lost his left eye to a BB gun accident, and suffered from severe asthma until adulthood. Shortly after graduating from chiropractic college, Dr. Gregory lost his sight. He was told at Yale Medical School that he had a growth on the optic nerve, causing him to go blind. He chose to receive upper cervical adjustments, and after 6 months, he slowly began to recover his sight! After much convincing from his peers to teach his work, Dr. Gregory held his first seminar in 1966 at the Howard Johnson Motel in Monroe, MI. Dr. Gregory was set that his work not be labeled the Gregory Technique, or be reliant upon a charismatic leader. To date, the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association continues his work and research and is one of the most influential chiropractic associations in the world.
