The NUCCA technique utilizes a series of diagnostic exams to confirm if a misalignment is present. Among these, the taking of pre (before) and post (after) x-rays are of the greatest importance. On your first visit to our office a set of 3 films will be taken and later analyzed. After your adjustment, these films will be repeated, and analyzed in the same fashion mentioned before. These x-rays will then be compared and will give our doctors visual and scientific evidence that the correction was made.
