At The Vital Posture™ Clinic, we focus specifically on the upper cervical (upper neck) region of the spine using the chiropractic technique referred to as NUCCA (“NU-ka”). NUCCA utilizes the principles of mathematics, physics, biomechanics, and kinesiology to balance the head on the neck therefore relieving stress throughout other areas of the body.
The technique is very precise; our doctors take detailed x-rays to determine the specific adjusting angle for your misalignment as well as follow-up x-rays to ensure optimal correction was achieved.
The human body is very complex; nerve/neurological pathways need to be clear of interference in order for all of your systems to work properly. Nerve interference can cause muscle and joint stress, headaches, and digestive issues just to name a few. We remove the interference and help you live a life with less pain in a more balanced postural position.
Posture is key to your relationship with gravity. Using a spinal adjustment that feels like having your pulse taken, the NUCCA procedure rebalances posture quickly and effectively. Posture is vital to your health, and we’re committed to helping make your body a better place to live!
Poor posture can lead to increased wear and tear on soft tissue structures such as muscles and ligaments and is one of the leading causes of chronic back problems. A sedentary lifestyle, poor workstation ergonomics, being overweight, and inadequate footwear can also contribute to back problems. Flexibility, core stability, and aerobic/muscular conditioning are other examples of factors that affect your body balance and need to be properly attended to in order to optimize your body balance.
The average patient in a NUCCA office sees a greater than 50% reduction in postural distortion within 2-3 days of the initial visit, and the procedure itself is as gentle as having your pulse taken. Posture is not only important to how you feel, but it also projects a healthy image to the rest of the world. Not only will you feel better, but you will also look better!
