Chiropractic Care

The chiropractic care that we provide is different in that NUCCA focuses on the upper neck but the adjustment realigns the entire spine. The procedure is very specific and gentle.

What Is NUCCA?

NUCCA is an acronym for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. This type of chiropractic care uses a precise and non-invasive adjusting technique. With this approach, we can restore and optimize your health by gently aligning your head and neck. You don’t have to fear being “cracked” or “popped” as the NUCCA procedure is very gentle, safe and painless.

You may wonder how a spine can get out of alignment. The spine can get misaligned from any accident, trauma or injuries or any type of instability in general. The adjustment is in the upper neck or the atlas bone but correcting it will realign your head, shoulders, hips and legs. While Dr. Dabrowny primarily uses NUCCA chiropractic, she does offer instrument-assisted adjusting with the ArthroStim®.

Once I go to a chiropractor will I always have to?

That’s a common misconception. We will want to see you stabilized and holding your adjustment as long as you can so you don’t have to come in as often.
Does an adjustment hurt?

No, a NUCCA adjustment is very gentle and specific.
Can chiropractic cure everything?

Chiropractic can’t cure anything but it will re-stabilize your spine and allow your central nervous system to work optimally, which is vital because your CNS controls everything!
Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

The birth process can be traumatic for many infants. Getting your baby checked as soon as possible after birth can help them get off to the healthiest start in life.
Can chiropractic help with colic and if so how?

Yes, it can. We take a look at the spine and see if there are any malalignments or misadjustments. If there are, we will correct those to allow the baby to be pain-free.
Do I need a referral from a physician to see Dr. Dabrowny?

No, you can give us a call and come in.
Does insurance cover chiropractic visits?

Insurance typically does cover chiropractic care. If your insurance takes care of out-of- network chiropractic, we will give you the receipt needed for the insurance company along with step-by-step instructions on how to submit it. They will pay you back whatever they deem necessary.
Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes, we work with podiatrists, physical therapists, neurologists and primary care physicians.
Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

No; that’s because our chiropractor needs time to evaluate your X-rays and your report. You will get adjusted on the second visit.
Will you suggest exercises and other things you can do?

Once your spine starts to heal we do recommend exercises.
Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Anyone who has had surgery on the spine can see a chiropractor as long as they’re able to lie on their side.
Even though you work on the neck will NUCCA help my low back?

NUCCA does help with sciatic aches and pains.
