Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
WHAT IS NUCCA?
This treatment provides patients with a gentler, specific correction in the upper neck. NUCCA is designed to help take pressure off the patient’s brain stem, allowing the nervous system to function correctly. An X-ray is taken to determine the specific angle of adjustment for your misalignment, and one is taken after to ensure the optimal correction was achieved.
NUCCA has helped patients with allergies, arthritis, asthma, back pain, athletic injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, depression, digestive problems, eye or ear infections, loss of sleep, headaches, fibromyalgia syndrome, and hip, knee, or leg pain. In addition, medical conditions NUCCA has helped include immune issues, infertility, lack of energy, muscle spasms, neuralgia, numbness and tingling, sciatica, scoliosis, whiplash, and restlessness
