What Does A NUCCA Doctor Adjust?

Do you have neck or back pain? Have you been to the chiropractor and found relief for a short time, but then your pain came back? You may need a NUCCA doctor. The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) is one of the leading associations for doctors who specialize in adjusting the spine. Dr. Jean-Pierre’s passion for the NUCCA care protocol led him to develop a deep understanding and empathy with those who suffer from migraines, beating his battle 20 years ago as well as experiencing first-hand how it can heal them naturally. He is now committed to helping others learn about these techniques so they may find relief too!

NUCCA chiropractic doctors adjust the spine to relieve pressure on the nerves

The NUCCA doctor sees a wide variety of patients. Whether they are suffering from migraines, epilepsy, digestive problems, or any other health condition, the NUCCA doctor focuses on correcting spinal misalignment. By adjusting the upper cervical spine (i.e., neck) and removing pressure from the nerves located in the upper cervical area, many patients find relief from their spinal correction. 

As a result of this adjustment, the chiropractic patient often reports improved blood flow and oxygenation to the brain, body balance, and spinal stability, resulting in improved health overall. Your entire body is ruled by your brain and your spine – and when they’re working correctly, you’ll work better too!

Unfortunately, many people suffer from spinal misalignment. This is often the result of normal wear and tear on the spine or an injury that occurred years ago. As we live life daily, it’s not uncommon for our spines to develop a “slight” misalignment. However, with the right information at hand, you can help your doctor correct the problem so you can enjoy a pain-free life!

How does NUCCA adjustment can help with chronic pain

Millions of people suffer chronic pain each year – whether it is back pain, neck pain, migraines, digestive problems, or other conditions. Unfortunately for many patients, they turn to more conventional approaches like drugs and surgery. Many of these treatments simply mask the symptoms rather than deal with the root cause. A NUCCA chiropractic doctor can help you begin a healing process so you can achieve a pain-free life.

NUCCA chiropractic care helps the central nervous system (CNS) function better, which results in reduced or eliminated chronic pain. Some patients find relief within minutes of their first treatment. Others find it takes longer to see the benefits. When your spine is out of alignment, it can cause damage to your CNS and result in abnormal function. After spinal correction, this function may revert to normal, and your body will be able to function optimally with improved health.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms for more than two weeks without relief, consider seeing a NUCCA doctor today! 

Upper cervical adjustment can help treat the following symptoms:

  • Chronic pain
  • Migraine headaches 
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blurred vision 
  • Vertigo or dizziness 
  • Hay fever, asthma, chronic sinusitis

NUCCA Chiropractic can help you feel better regardless of your circumstances because the central nervous system affects all human functions and body balance. When it is inhibited, varying conditions or problems may result but when clear optimal health is restored.

Possible health problems and how NUCCA solves them

Spinal balance not only affects your spinal column but also the cranial nerves that affect your eyes, ears, sinuses, and so much more. Here are some conditions that can be treated with a spinal correction through NUCCA chiropractic techniques:


The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is responsible for coordinating the function of all organs, glands, and blood vessels. The normal communication between brain cells that control this complex network can be disrupted in some people who develop asthma or allergies along it because they are so closely linked!

Therefore, it’s so important to regularly realign your cervical spine. If you have an ANS that has become irritated because of misalignment, the immune response can be exaggerated, and respiration might also change- usually for asthma sufferers this will happen often!

Sleep Disturbances 

Getting the best sleep possible is not only essential for your mental health, but it impacts how well you perform during the day. A lack of rest can cause a multitude of problems with concentration and memory as well as irritability mood swings or even more serious medical conditions such as diabetes which causes high blood pressure- all because we’re spending less time than usual in bed! The Chiropractor has solutions that will help correct any issues so call today before these 5 stages happen over again throughout another exhausting night.

Parkinson`s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a complex condition that researchers are still investigating the causes of. However, recent studies have shown an association between head trauma and Parkinson’s symptoms developing months or years later. After sustaining whiplash-like injuries to your cervical spine (the area between neck bones), you may experience compression against major nerve centers in your brain which can lead to the onset of tremors, rigidity movement impairments, etc., all leading up towards getting diagnosed with this terrible illness!

NUCCA treatments can help Parkinson’s disease by correcting the spinal misalignments caused by trauma and removing compression on nearby nerves. After nerve irritation has been removed, proper communication between your brain and spine is restored so you feel better quickly!


You feel exhausted, but you don’t want to give in. It’s hard when the fatigue becomes physical or emotional stress and thinking that it will just go away can interfere with taking care of your needs like sleep when causes are determined by who they are (person), what medications they’re on, lack of activity because an individual has a sedentary lifestyle habit… there is hope for change! The first step towards living life fully starts here–take action now so we’ll have energy again soon enough.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 

The standard medical approach to treating CTS may include a splint to immobilize the wrist, diuretics (water pills), anti-inflammatory drugs, or corticosteroid shots. As last resort surgery may be performed but recovery can take months or years and even if the pain is eliminated symptoms will return over time.

In the NUCCA approach, it is important not only to treat symptoms but also to determine the cause of a problem. In this case, we should examine our neck and spine before looking at wrists because nerves are coming out from the mid-neck region which branches into arms hands & fingers; pressure on anyone will result in CTS!

After the adjustments have been made, follow-up imaging studies and nervous system scans are taken to confirm a successful spinal correction. Once achieved successfully these patients find relief!

Seizures and Epilepsy

Trauma is the most common form of epilepsy and can be caused by misaligning one’s atlas (or C-1) vertebrae. This compression impacts brain stem neurons which fire more rapidly into seizures that may lead to this disorder in some cases. 

After trauma and compression of the brain stem, NUCCA can help to remove nerve irritation. This in turn restores proper communication between your brain and spinal cord; resulting in many cases for patients suffering from epilepsy who see great improvements when their nervous system gets fixed!

Have you been experiencing chronic pain that hasn’t gone away, despite your best efforts? If so, it’s time to consider a NUCCA doctor. You see, most people don’t realize the cause of their pain is nerve pressure and they’re not even aware some doctors can help! A NUCCA adjustment relieves this pressure on nerves by gently manipulating the spine and joints to restore proper alignment.
