Chiropractic Care

There are many styles and types of chiropractic, just like in traditional medicine. Our specialty is NUCCA chiropractic, which is very different from traditional chiropractic.

Dr. Felix holding spineWhat Is NUCCA?

At Atlas Spine & Wellness Care, we believe in achieving more by doing less—fewer adjustments and less force. Our goal is not to find vertebrae or joints that aren’t moving. We analyze, locate and correct the misalignment of the spine that’s causing dysfunction in the body, based on the ideal biomechanics of the spine and the proper alignment of its vertebrae.

With extremely specific X-rays of the head, neck, and lower back, our doctors are able to measure your spinal misalignment down to a fraction of a degree. The analysis of those X-rays tells us what happened to the spine, what traumas the person experienced, how it affected their spine, and how the spine has had to compensate through the years.

Following specific calculations unique to NUCCA, a manual correction, unique to your situation, is performed, restoring normal alignment to the spine. We seek to bring the head and neck back to vertical.

Dr. Felix Checking Leg LengthThe NUCCA adjustment is extremely gentle and painless. There’s no twisting, cracking or popping. Imaging is repeated after the adjustment to determine if the correction was sufficient and if alignment has been restored. In some cases, a second correction may be necessary to ensure your spine is stable and aligned.

Your spine may be misaligned if:

  • Your head naturally sits tilted
  • One shoulder is higher than the other
  • One hip is higher than the other

Weakness of the deep lower back muscles is a common cause of low back pain from conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome and degenerative joint disease.

The MedX Lumbar Extension machine addresses this weakness by isolating the area, and helping strengthen the muscles, which stabilize the lower back, reinforcing the area and decreasing pain. Following a program designed for your needs, it can provide resistance over a full range of isolated lumbar motion, or over a selected limited range.

Extensive reviews confirm that MedX’s proprietary technology can materially decrease chronic spine-related pain issues, restore spinal function, reduce or eliminate the need for ongoing care, and improve patients’ quality of life.
