Dr. Joe Breuwet is Hawaii’s top chiropractor Specializing in Upper Cervical Care – a method of making an “Atlas correction”.
The Atlas is the topmost vertebra, and — along with the Axis — forms the joint connecting the skull and spine.
Correction to the Atlas relieves pressure off the brain stem, enabling the body’s nervous system to restore natural alignment and body function.
“This gentle, non-invasive technique was developed more than forty years ago to create a radical new way of healing that can help restore body balance and perfect health. The focus of the NUCCA work is the relationship between the upper cervical spine (neck) and its influence on the central nervous system and brain stem function. It is this relationship that affects every aspect of human function from the feeling sensations in your fingers to regulating hormones, controlling movement, and providing the ability to hear, see, think, and breathe.”

What is the NUCCA?
NUCCA stands for the “National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association,” and the technique is a pain-free procedure that involves no more pressure from the doctor than taking your pulse. NUCCA is an extremely unique form and system that differs greatly from traditional chiropractic care. The NUCCA procedure also involves no guesswork: x-rays before and after the adjustment ensure that your adjustment has worked and the subluxation, or misalignment, has been corrected.
