Rockford Chiropractor - Spinal Care for Injuries

People ask me how we would take care of their children injured on the field. You know, the soccer game where he rolled on an ankle or landed on the knee. It hurts, there's a limp. Someone might even have said, "you have a sprained ligament."
But here is where you have to see the big picture. The ligament may require ice, rest, wrapping...and it may improve. But if the spine is out of balance due to trauma, the joints will not interface correctly EVER, and instead of long-term healing, you get long-term breakdown. Instead of a child going from strength to strength, you get your child suddenly looking old, broken, and looking forward to not playing sports at the end of the season.
Is that what we want?
The 1st Step is to correct the imbalanced spine with the NUCCA procedure. This has the unbelievable potential to correct the position of every joint in the body. If some joints are slow to respond, there are other chiropractic procedures we use to bring them back into right relations.
Then we get what we really want...healthy, happy, active children!

Rockford Chiropractor: NUCCA Practitioner

Here are a few things that draw me to the specificity of the NUCCA procedure; any condition you can think of has the potential to vanish once the communication between the brain and body has been restored. Look at this fine website by a doctor in San Diego. It shows some images that express one element of the insult caused by the "atlas subluxation complex." I am talking about compression of the spinal cord. This compression causes two events that have been documented in the research - anoxic conditions in the cord and mechanical disruption of the nerve fibers under pressure. In either case, nerve fibers fail to carry signals from or to the brain.
Not good!
(another thing that I like about the NUCCA procedure is that the adjustment is so subtle, the patient cannot feel it)
So, enjoy Chiropractic in Rockford's center for the NUCCA procedure!

The Problem with Skeptics Regarding the NUCCA Procedure

I understand that there are those who have questions about the NUCCA procedure (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). Some people actually investigate the procedure - we call them scientists. Some people don't investigate and make up their minds without the help of knowledge - we call them skeptics of the worst kind.
The worst kind because they fail to actually investigate all the factors relevant in the NUCCA work. Factors such as x-ray reliability, analysis reliability, adjusting skills, the value of testing, the value of looking for indicators within a person's nerve system that show the presence of the atlas subluxation complex...
Lucky for many, many people, they don't listen to this type of skeptic, and simply go for what makes sense.
What makes sense is that you need your head to be in communication with your body for anything to work right. The NUCCA procedure does this. Then people heal from conditions as diverse as congestive heart failure, liver disease, fallen arches, TMJ syndrome...and on and on. And it is simply due to the fact that normal physiology has been restored within the nerve system which controls and coordinates all the other systems of the body. Good science!

NUCCA Procedure in Rockford

Since 2001, I have been actively studying and practicing the NUCCA procedure (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). As a violinist, I am accustomed to spending many years working on skills and understand the value of effort applied over time. My patients understand this too!
Instead of thinking that their bodies are like cars - a burned out engine you can replace and then you are back on the road, but your body requires the right treatments applied over time for full healing to occur.
How does this work? I am including a link to a NUCCA site that helps explain the corrective procedure that helps so many people, some with miraculous results.
So, now you can think of Rockford, IL, as a center, not only for precise machine work, but also for precise upper cervical chiropractic work!
