Welcome to NUCCA Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Calgary Alberta

Welcome to the practice of Dr. Sloane Hunter, where we provide quality corrective spinal care since 2003.  If  you are seeking a gentle, effective and long-term solution to ongoing or unresolving issues in the body, we urge you to contact the office for an evaluation.  You may have heard the phrase “we don’t know what we don’t know about”, and can live an entire life oblivious of something that may benefit us or impact one’s life in some way, but once discovered we can be in disbelief that we ever lived our lives without it.  This is your call to action on discovering another piece to your health and function that is often overlooked.  Let this be your opportunity to discover a possible solution or vital piece to your “health puzzle” that may have never been brought to your awareness before. The vast majority of Dr. Hunter’s clients since 2003 have been directed to her practice via word of mouth.

Her mission has always been to improve the lives of each individual who comes to seek her help, one person, one spine at a time.  Though word of mouth is the best form of advertising, she is committed to expanding the consciousness of her community to grow in awareness of this little-known corrective procedure known as NUCCA.  Because the focus is at the highest level of the spine- the brainstem controlling posture and many other important automatic body functions, the potential for far-reaching healing is often under-estimated.  In addition to experiencing relief for the complaints one may be seeking care for, they will often report benefit or relief to other dysfunctions, originally believed to be unrelated prior to starting care!

Your are invited to call us and at very least, get your spine checked and measured for peace of mind.  You never know how a postural breakdown may be affecting your life until you look at it.

What is NUCCA

NUCCA is a little known yet highly effective corrective procedure that has been developed and refined for over fifty years by the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) and its research affiliate the Upper Cervical Research Foundation (UCRF). If you would like to learn more about current research being conducted in the field of NUCCA care, you can also visit The Upper Cervical Monograph for the latest articles about and advancing the NUCCA method.

The NUCCA chiropractic method is a gentle and safe form of chiropractic care, with a focus on long-lasting results. The procedure focuses on correcting the entire spine back to a balanced, unstressed position under gravity in order to reactivate the transmission of healing messages from the brain to the affected part of the body (via the nervous system) so the body’s natural self-healing process can begin.

NUCCA practitioners utilize the top vertebra of the spine to very specifically and gently realign the entire spine to a balanced position. It is not necessary to adjust the spine over and over again if it is truly corrected and stabilized. When corrected, the spine needs to be left alone in its normal position unless it is misaligned again.
