The NUCCA Educational Process

The NUCCA educational process supports the impeccable training of doctors and students in effort to provide the most advanced chiropractic spinal care possible. The NUCCA training focuses on acquiring skills to identify and understand the precise distinctions required to measure and reduce the Atlas Subluxation Complex (ASC) in a repeatable and predictable manner. The NUCCA procedure corrects and manages the subtle demands of the Atlas Subluxation Complex and the influences this misalignment of the first neck vertebrae has on the neurology of the upper cervical region of the brainstem.

In order to accurately evaluate and correct the upper cervical misalignment, NUCCA work requires accurate pre and post treatment x–rays. Therefore, an essential requirement of the NUCCA education is learning how to ensure that x–ray diagnostics are uniform and correct in both the positioning of the patient as well as exposures and evaluation. Equally strong emphasis is placed on the analyses and bio–mechanical interpretation and evaluation of repeatable pre and post treatment x–rays. This information is then easily transferable from practitioner to practitioner with maximal corrections and consistently high standards of practice.

Today the NUCCA procedure is offered at growing number of accredited chiropractic colleges and through the NUCCA organization's semi–annual educational conferences which are attended by both chiropractic students and doctors from all over the world. Updates on research conducted by the Upper Cervical Research Foundation are also offered at these seminars along with a certification program designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of NUCCA practitioners. Traditionally, the NUCCA faculty provided all of the educational programming on a volunteer basis. All expenses associated with teaching were paid for personally. We are now allocating a portion of our donated funds to help support the educational process of this work through the following programs:

* Scholarships for students studying NUCCA procedure at chiropractic colleges

* Bursaries for graduate doctors seeking further education and/or NUCCA certification

* Financial support for doctors teaching at NUCCA conferences

Your generous support of NUCCA educational programming is greatly appreciated.
