After receiving NUCCA Chiropractic care, some patients have shared with us that they noticed a drop in their blood pressure. The misalignment in the upper neck can interfere with critical nerve messages that can cause blood vessels to constrict and therefore, increase blood pressure. Correcting the misalignment can allow the pressure to decrease. Here is a […]
The word “homeostasis” describes the body’s ability to maintain relatively stable internal conditions even though the outside world is constantly changing. Communication within the body is essential for homeostasis and is accomplished mainly by the nervous and endocrine systems.

The spinal column remains straight and balanced as long as the weight of the head is centered over the neck. When the weight of the head is shifted off center, due to an accident or injury, the body will compensate and move into an imbalanced position. In an effort to keep the head centered over the neck, the spine and pelvis will twist and lock into a stressed position.
This twisting, or imbalance, that is created will eventually show up in a few interesting ways.
Body Imbalance shows up with:
Upper cervical care is a radically different approach to health care.
To better understand how it works it is important to understand the body parts, how the nerve system operates and how the body communicates and functions.
Upper cervical doctors focus on the top 2 bones in the spine, the atlas and the axis or C1 and C2 respectively. The atlas is at the top of the spine and bears the weight of our 10 pounds heads… mine might be a bit heavier, my wife claims. If the atlas is shifted out of its proper position it can cause all sorts of problems to occur.

This study shows an improvement in […]
