There are a number of Chiropractors in Fort Wayne. However, you may have noticed that there are a number of different techniques that each of those Fort Wayne Chiropractors use as well. Some of those techniques may be gentle techniques, while others use a lot more force with twisting, snapping, cracking, and popping. At Atlas Chiropractic of Fort Wayne you'll find only the former and never the latter. We only adjust using the very gentle and precise technique known as NUCCA. Your adjustments will not sound like someone has broken into a box of rice crispies, or has found some bubble wrap to pop, or one of those little popping fidget toys. There should be very little to no sound at all resulting from your adjustment.
Gentle Chiropractors in Fort Wayne
NUCCA is an acronym that stands for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association and is extremely gentle by design. NUCCA relies on your body's positioning using a specialized NUCCA table and adjustable headpiece to allow the weight to be taken off of the atlas bone so that it can be gently shifted into a more neutral, or corrected, position.
When you visit a NUCCA chiropractor, such as Dr. Emily Staples, you'll first go through an onboarding and intake process. Unless you're transferring in from another NUCCA upper cervical chiropractor, you won't have undergone the analysis that is required to perform the NUCCA adjustment. Each person's adjustment is specific to their body and the angle that the atlas bone sits in their spine. As such, that requires that we use some imaging to make that determination. After the imaging, Dr. Emily is able to use formulas and calculations to determine the exact adjustment your atlas bone needs. In addition to imaging, Dr. Emily will take other measurements, scans, readings, and notes about different indicators that will provide verification that the adjustment is actually doing what it should be. We want to scientifically verify that your body is doing what it should and that interference of your nervous system is being removed or reduced.
NUCCA in Indiana
According to the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association - nucca.org - there are four NUCCA chiropractors in the entire state of Indiana as of the date of this writing. Only one of those is in Fort Wayne (that's us) and two of them are in Indianapolis. Since NUCCA has been around for quite some time and many midsize to large cities have a NUCCA chiropractor, we were astounded when we found out that not only did Fort Wayne not have a NUCCA chiropractor, but that it did not have any upper cervical chiropractors at all. In fact, there are no other upper cervical chiropractors of any type that we have been able to find in Allen County or any of the surrounding counties as well - Adams, Wells, Huntington, Whitley, Noble, or DeKalb. So here we are! While we've only been open a short time so far, we've already heard from some of you that you've been driving to neighboring states or that you moved here from somewhere that had a NUCCA chiropractor. Whether you're new to NUCCA or you're just now learning about this technique, we're glad you've found us! We'd love to become your chiropractors in Fort Wayne!
