FROM OUR YELP REVIEWS

The NUCCA Procedure is a Gentle Correction. A gentle touch and controlled contact on the first vertebrae in the neck is designed to restore balance to the spine. Even though the primary focus is the neck, the effects of the correction influence the whole spine and all body systems.
Since it was discovered in 1895, Chiropractic has focused on finding the CAUSE of poor health and disease instead of simply masking the symptoms. Assisting patients in regaining their health without the use of harmful drugs or surgery.
The Balanced Atlas emphasizes the importance of improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. Given the option, most people would prefer to be healthy and avoid illness if possible, and chiropractic care can help those people achieve their health and wellness goals. For those patients who may already be in pain, chiropractic care offers a unique way to provide pain relief for many types of pain and conditions, including back pain, neck pain and more!
Pain relief and pain prevention are two of the reasons that chiropractic services have become so popular, both here in San Francisco and around the world.

Providing our community with excellent care!
Many patients notice improvements in their health which are unrelated to the initial symptoms for which they sought Chiropractic care. However, solving the initial symptom, can lead to the following improvements, some of these are:
- Improvement in respiration, cardiac rate control, circulatory improvement.
- Better functioning of the digestive tract, better elimination
- Improved spinal balance through correction of the pelvic alignment
- Realignment of the gravity center of the body, causing better posture
- Correction of spastic contracture in skeletal (body framework) muscles, thereby resolving back pain
- Equalization of leg lengths providing better body-weight distribution and protecting spinal discs
- Improved positions of internal organs.
The NUCCA is a unique approach to your healthcare
While there are more than 60,000 Chiropractors in the United States (over 10,000 in California alone), less than .008% (about 500 in the world) have the specialized training and education to provide NUCCA care. People travel long distances for NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) care, and they consistently say that the reason they go to such lengths for this unique approach to care is simple; Dr. Harrison is one of the best.
