NUCCA is Advanced Spinal Correction

Sheppard Spine And Sports Clinic provides an advanced spinal correction known as the N.U.C.C.A. technique. This is a measured spinal technique that does not involve "twisting" or "cracking" of the neck. This procedure is comfortable for adults, youth and children. Utilizing true plane spinography x-rays we are able to measure the exact degree of your atlas misalignment. The proper atlas correction is the single most important component of your neurological and spinal function.

Dr. Kenny Sheppard is known among his peers and patients alike as one of San Diego's premier NUCCA Upper Cervical Chiropractors. He has been practicing NUCCA chiropractic for 31 years. He is one of the few Doctors trained in NUCCA procedures and protocols.
