NUCCA

Dr. Desai has been trained for the NUCCA Technique and is currently pursuing the first level of certification. 

"The NUCCA procedure is unique because it frees the nervous system of interference by using a precise, non-invasive, gentle touch technique." -NUCCA.

NUCCA stands for National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.

It is a technique developed to reduce injury caused to the nervous system at the craniocervical junction -  where the base of the head meets the top of the neck or where the first two vertebrae of the neck begin.  The purpose of the technique is to reduce the Atlas Subluxation Complex.

 

Process of the technique:  

Step 1: A precise set of x-rays views are taken of the head and neck.

 

Step 2: Specific mathematical X-ray analysis are performed to determine the exact misalignment.  This eliminates any guess work. 

 

Step 3: A gentle, non-invasive spinal adjustment is performed. It is solely a neck adjustment.  

 

Step 4: Postural and leg length analysis are performed to determine if any changes occured. 

 

Step 5: A post x-ray is taken of the head and neck to analyze the precision of adjustment and mathematically calculate how much the misalignment was reduced.  

 

Step 6: Thereafter, no further x-rays are taken, posture and leg length analysis are used for assessment. 

 

The technique requires mundane training to gain perfections and reduce human error, this creates miraculous results in the healing of the patient.
