Why I Practice gentle upper cervical chiropractic

"I was introduced to NUCCA while in chiropractic school. I had been adjusted the traditional (or most common) way for years, but got only temporary relief. I was being adjusted by a chiropractor 3-4 times a week just to try manage my pain. While in chiropractic school, my low back had become worse than it had ever been - I began to wonder why I could never maintain my adjustments.

"During my studies, a speaker came to Life West to introduce the class to NUCCA. His presentation on the procedure was so compelling, I decided to become a patient. It was hard to believe how gentle the procedure was. I knew I had to learn this technique when I woke up the day after my first adjustment up with no low back pain for the first time in 10 years!”  I was so grateful to have found this gift. I knew I had to share it with others."

Since then my own healing journey has evolved and I continue to hone my skills so that I can deliver the most advanced and effective upper cervical care. This search led me to QSM3, which provided not only the most complete and stable care for me, but also helped solve some of my most difficult cases that didn't follow the same rules as everyone else. I no longer have "difficult cases," just some that might take a few more steps to solve.
