What is NUCCA?

The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) has developed a highly advanced procedure that is both extremely precise and gentle technique, unlike any other kind of care. A gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebrae in the neck is designed to restore balance to the spine. Even though the primary focus is the neck, the effect of the correction influences the whole spine and all body systems.

This is because the NUCCA procedure influences one of the highest control centers over body balance, the brain stem and central nervous system.

The C-1 vertebra, also known as the Atlas, is a small ring-like bone located at the top of the spine and the base of the skull that surrounds the brain stem. When the spine is subjected to stress it can become misaligned beginning at the Atlas vertebrae. The spine will then compensate for the misalignment of the head and neck by the rest of the spine moving and twisting out of their normal positions.

The NUCCA procedure utilized at Discover Health Chiropractic places great importance on correcting the cause of body imbalance rather than just treating your symptoms. NUCCA care emphasizes spinal correction and stability for long term results.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Want a pain free way to heal. Try NUCCA Chiropractic with Dr. P. She has a gentle touch and caring words to help you heal. I believe in this process and have seen amazing results from this treatment. As a professional violinist and an avid DYI homeowner, Dr. P would always frown upon my aches and pains that I would self inflict. However, her magical hands helped me heal and though I have been released from my first treatment, I have continued to see her each month for maintenance. Her office team is amazing, and I drive an hour and 45 minutes to see her. It's worth it to feel no pain. ~ D. Rose"

  • "I have been a long time headache sufferer. I have been in a few motor vehicle accidents in the past that I didn't fully recover from. I was very responsive and improved quite quickly from Dr Planchich's very gentle adjustments. Now I go in for checks every 6-8 weeks to make sure I am holding my adjustment. It has helped a lot with my headaches. I am very active, but don't want to be in pain and definitely don't want to take medication."

  • "It is a shame that so many people suffer back and neck pain when there is such a simple, painless procedure to heal your body naturally. Last year I hurt my back and could barely move. Dr. Plancich adjusted my spine and within a short time I was completely pain free without surgery, drugs or side-effects. She has the magic touch. She is serious about her work and has an engaging personality. I recommend her to all my family and friends, and they all enjoy the benefits of her treatment."
