Headaches and Back Aches Relief

“Whether it’s a headache, backache or my feet hurting from wearing the wrong shoes, Dr. Young takes great care of me and my 4 year old son. He always makes me feel so much better! After suffering from ulcerative colitis for many years, I am finally getting relief! My son, who was diagnosed with autism loves going to see Dr. Young too and has even become potty trained. What a relief! Thank you for the best chiropractic care a patient could ask for.”

NUCCA Spinal Care Can Provide Relief

NUCCA is an upper cervical chiropractic technique that does not require any popping, cracking or twisting of your neck or spine. Patients love that it is a low force technique that can provide headaches and back aches relief. The upper neck is adjusted only when needed, with the ultimate goal of not needing an adjustment at all. We call this “holding” your adjustment. Many of our patients come in, get checked, and walk out without needing an adjustment. Our ultimate goal is for your body to get stronger over time, and need less intervention from our doctors.

When atlas, the first bone in the neck, is misaligned it can put mechanical pressure on spinal nerves and blood vessels. An atlas misalignment can cause muscle spasms and inflammation to the head, neck, and back. This can make a patient more likely to suffer from chronic headaches and neck and back aches. Also, poor posture, text neck, poor ergonomics and even dehydration can all contribute to the frequency of headaches.

Gentle Adjustments. Powerful Results.
