SUFFERING: Pain and suffering is a big motivator for people to seek medical attention. In most conditions pain is usually the last symptom to occur in any ailment or disease. For example, take heart disease or dental decay. These diseases can be present for months or years until a person starts feeling any pain. The same goes with spinal injury or misalignment, which is why it is important to seek a NUCCA doctor right away, especially when the pain is present.
STABILIZING: Holding the NUCCA correction builds the foundation for your body to begin the process of healing. Stability starts at different times for different people, and knowing this, our doctors are there to make recommendations catering to each personals individual needs.

REHABILITATION: Once your body Stabilizes, you will be evaluated to see if you are ready for rehabilitating exercises and stretches.

HEALING: Healing takes Time. If we don't give our body enough time to heal, it is more prone to injury. To fully allow our bodies to heal during recovery, keep in mind the following periods of healing. Muscles take 4-6 weeks to heal fully, Ligaments take 6-8 weeks to heal fully, and Nerves take 3-4 months to heal fully. Our doctors will monitor your spine during this process to make sure your body heals properly.
OPTIMAL HEALTH: When you achieve optimal health, it is important to have seasonal checkups to maintain the healthy balanced lifestyle and healthy spine you have achieved. How long your misalignment has been around for and how much degeneration has occurred over that time determines what your personal optimum is. Knowing this, our NUCCA doctors will give you a realistic view of what you can achieve.
