Conference Time! What do we do at NUCCA conferences? Why does it take so long to analyze films the first time? Why do NUCCA doctors take post-adjustment x-rays after the first adjustment?
We have discovered that the better the initial correction, the better patients are able to heal up. We calculate the percentage of correction, examine the adjusting vector and determine if everything did was it was supposed to do.
In this video, we see some rehashing of some cases that were very challenging. We see people practicing the adjusting stance. These are not rookies doing the practice. As with any high level performer, getting coaching is essential to developing the best skills.
When you are looking for a NUCCA doctor in your area, check and see if they go to the conferences. If not, keep looking!

I have not seen this before! Usually we have to do the Purification Program, a whole food supplement 21-day course, before a person loses chocolate cravings. But in this case, the incredible power of the central nerve system worked first on the abnormal chemistry that creates chocolate cravings!
Using the NUCCA procedure, the brain and spinal cord return to normal relations. This enables all the cells of the body to refresh and behave better. With time, we see healing ensue.
You can be sure that Kathy did not come into Rockford's 1st Step Chiropractic with the goal of eliminating chocolate cravings. I will never state that we can "cure chocolate cravings," but what IS true is that the body cannot heal anything if the spine remains out of balance.
So that's what we do - restore the balance of the spine.

Got the atlas subluxation complex cleared out and stabilized after a few weeks, and now look! We see a classic example of someone getting back on the normal development time line. Any time you see someone who cannot stand up straight, has lost health, you must ask if spinal balance is lost. This is correctable.
Why watch people suffer? It is a principle of our society to make things better for people. We can do that by correcting the imbalanced spine.

The patient had twisted her knee a few days before and it was swollen and painful as a result. The tibia was twisted under the femur. She had a brace on it to keep it stable. When I checked it, there was palpable swelling, heat and tenderness below the kneecap. She was out of adjustment due to the presence of the indicators that show up when there is spinal cord pressure at the brain stem.
I adjusted the atlas subluxation complex and re-checked the knee. The swelling had vanished, the heat and tenderness had vanished, and the twisting of the tibia was gone. Everything had straightened out!
Isn't that nice that the body was able to correct the knee problem right away, once the underlying cause of the failure-to-heal had been eliminated!
But can you see that it is all a matter of communication between the brain and the body? This was fixed before the joints had time to wear out.
Knee pain - it can get fixed with upper cervical care!

Here is a fun video out of the office of my colleague, Dr. Goffe, in Ohio. He uses the NUCCA procedure too (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association)
Notice that the hands are linked together (the better to create the adjusting force), the table is low (so the adjuster's body can get to the correct angle), and the tape measure is out to define the correct angle of the adjustment.
The only thing missing is a heady discussion of complex lever mechanisms, but did you really have that much trouble getting to sleep?
NUCCA, in Rockford, it helps.

Tension/Resolution, a tonal system that has logic and organization. This is much like the nerve system keeping the vertebrate mechanism in balance. When there is a peaceful balance in the muscles, you could say that there is tonal harmony. When there is tension you could say there is discordant assymmetry.
How can you restore balance in the tissues, in the muscles, in the "sound?"
Upper cervical chiropractic restores communication between the brain and the body. The nerve system controls and coordinates all the other systems in the body, and it relates us to the outside world. If you begin your piece in F#, you want to end it in F#, after wandering through other tonal centers. That gives the music balance and harmony.
Now all we have to do is get that same balance and harmony going in YOU!
Rockford Chiropractor, here to help you restore spinal balance and nerve system harmony.
