Upper Cervical Care is a broad term for care that focuses on the upper neck. Upper cervical literally means upper neck. A vital part of your nervous system, the brainstem, resides in this delicate area.
NUCCA is a form of upper cervical care that gets to the root of the problem no matter where the symptoms are in your body. Dr. Jeanett Tapia and Dr. Devin Young are both part of a small group of specialized doctors that are active NUCCA members. The NUCCA work focuses on correcting a small misalignment of the bone structure that connects the head and neck. This misalignment can disrupt the communication between your brain and body causing pain, stress, tension, and physical or emotional dysfunction. A childhood fall, sports injury, birth trauma or car accident can be the cause of many common symptoms. NUCCA currently has less than 300 members and is an acronym that stands for National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.
