Have you ever been afraid to visit the chiropractor because you didn’t want your neck twisted? N.U.C.C.A. is for you.

If it becomes misaligned due to trauma or injury, the slightest side slip or rotation can cause a multitude of problems such as headaches, sciatica, back and neck pain, high blood pressure*, leg length differential, vision problems, and much more. Why? Because over three hundred trillion nerves pass through the brain stem and atlas on their way to the body. These nerves control and coordinate every bodily function and need to be free of interference for optimum health.
