These are times of great change. Everyone feels it. We’re all becoming more conscious of how important it is to join together to create a healthier, peaceful world.
At the Upper Cervical Research Foundation, we believe thriving good health and a powerful sense of well-being are essential to creating an adaptive, responsible, and peaceful society. Therefore, we’re committed to changing lives by making a significant difference in human health.
Our focus is the link between the upper cervical spine and optimal well-being. Research shows that problems in the cervical spine can cause progressively degenerative structural, neurological, physiological and pathological symptoms. Yet, when a small but measurable spinal misalignment known as the Atlas Subluxation Complex (ASC)* is detected and corrected, a return toward good health and normal activity can be realized.
The influence of the ASC correction is uniquely profound which is why UCRF doctors and scientists study the upper cervical spine and the role it plays in illness, health and wellness. Our diverse project teams are carefully selected to document and publish findings and testable studies associated with the Atlas Subluxation Complex and its vast range of impact.
We’re devoted to the evolution of healthcare and the well-being of the human experience. And if we’re going to promote change that truly makes a difference, we need many partners. Please consider joining our membership and lend your hand to change. It’s a remarkable work in progress.
*The Upper Cervical Research Foundation, formerly the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research Association (NUCCRA), was established in 1971 as the research branch of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA).
** The Atlas Subluxation Complex includes the measurable misalignment of the head, atlas and cervical spine, the contracted spinal musculature, postural distortion and short leg phenomena. The Atlas Subluxation Complex Syndrome includes the ASC and its effects on the central and peripheral nervous system and the relationship to the symptoms and conditions directly related and those associated with this progressive degenerative condition.
