According to Dr. Portela, the NUCCA chiropractic technique is extremely precise and gentle, unlike any other type of care. The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association or NUCCA is an organization of doctors who have developed through science, a highly advanced procedure for chiropractic patients. Very gentle contact done by the hands is delivered to the first bone of the neck or C-spine, also known as the atlas bone. Although the focus is on the top bone of the neck, the NUCCA chiropractic technique is designed to restore balance to the whole spine, effecting all of the body’s systems. It works well for those who suffer from neck or lower back pain and headaches, to name a few. It is so specific and temperate that there is very little contraindication. Many people do not know of this technique, and only around 300 doctors worldwide offer it. Dr. Portela is one of the few doctors in Florida that practices the NUCCA technique.
