Welcome to The Balanced Atlas, Your San Francisco, CA NUCCA Chiropractor

We welcome you to The Balanced Atlas, your San Francisco NUCCA chiropractor. We apply a gentle touch to the uppermost vertebrae of your neck. This non-invasive treatment provides you restoration to not only your upper body, but it also will correct issues with the rest of your spine.

History of NUCCA Treatments and Your San Francisco Chiropractor

NUCCA treatment became popular after its discovery in 1966. Since 2007, Dr. Allen Harrison has continued this longstanding legacy. Dr. Harrison uses this therapeutic technique to pinpoint the cause of symptoms and poor health instead of just providing surface symptom relief. Dr. Harrison applies this treatment to patients seeking another option besides using potentially addictive drugs. It also provides patients with an alternative to surgery.

About Dr. Harrison’s Own NUCCA Healing Experience

Dr. Allen Harrison says that the reason he gets out of bed in the morning is to improve the health of as many families as possible. He also says that chiropractic care has an “immeasurable impact on the entire family and takes patients of all ages including infants. Dr. Harrison first became interested in working as a chiropractor when he was 12 years old and began receiving treatment for sports injuries from a specialist who also served celebrities.

Then, after becoming a car accident victim in college, he then discovered NUCCA therapy. After the first two days of NUCCA treatment, his sciatic nerve pain that he endured for months became less intense. Within a week, he no longer had the sharp pain that used to run down both of his legs.

Services Offered by The Balanced Atlas

The name of your San Francisco “Balanced Atlas” describes exactly the process of correcting problems originating from the first vertebra of your spine commonly referred to as the Atlas. This cervical vertebra is known as the control center for the rest of the spine. When the atlas is corrected, it provides proper balance to the rest of the back, shoulders, legs, and more.

In most cases, the patient doesn’t even realize the NUCCA procedure is happening while your San Francisco specialist administers it. We provide comprehensive therapy that starts with the first consultation to follow-up visits. The entire process often takes as little time as a few weeks to only about three months. Throughout this process, we also guide you in the path to total wellness care.
