Dr. Tapia experienced NUCCA Spinal Care as a patient before she graduated from chiropractic school. She quickly became an advocate for this specialty chiropractic technique, witnessing patient after patient get relief. She learned several upper cervical techniques but came back to NUCCA as it was a lifesaver for her own personal health.
At Intouch Chiropractic, We Never Stop Training
Dr. Tapia’s chiropractic education continues to be vastly different from most chiropractors. She doesn’t rely solely on her chiropractic schooling for her clinical skills. She saw her chiropractic diploma simply as a basic foundation. In no time, she wrapped up her graduation requirements so that she could spend time in the real world, in real clinics, with real patients, learning advanced care protocols. She didn’t rely on what was solely required to graduate, but on what she knew she would need to help her patients get well. Over the years, she has continually expanded and honed her skills with ongoing continuing education that surpasses the national standard.
You could say that Dr. Tapia was lucky to be exposed to NUCCA as part of an elective course, but she ran with it after that. She spent countless hours in NUCCA offices on her own dime, wanting to learn every detail so she could deliver clinical results herself. Right away she knew that these skills were not going to be taught, nor was she going to learn them in a chiropractic college setting. She quickly learned that this light touch adjustment required specificity, and this specificity required a lot more training.
