The Birthplace of NUCCA!

We are the longest continuous practice using the NUCCA technique beginning with founder, Dr. Ralph Gregory

About Us

The Birthplace Practice of NUCCA

The office of Dr. Keith Denton and Dr. Teresa Palmer is the former office of Dr. Ralph Gregory, the founder of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA - 1966) and the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research Association (NUCCRA - 1971). This is the original NUCCA practice and is the longest continuing provider of NUCCA care.

The NUCCA Advantage

The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) has developed a highly advanced procedure that is an extremely precise and gentle technique unlike any other kind of care. NUCCA chiropractic addresses mechanical spinal injuries (trauma) primarily in the neck and head region. These injuries cause neurological, postural, and spinal imbalances. The tool of the NUCCA doctor is the upper cervical adjustment. The purpose of the adjustment is to mechanically return the head and neck to its normal position

Chiropractors Who Care

Both Dr. Denton and Dr. Palmer started private practice with the founder of NUCCA and NUCCRA, Dr. Ralph Gregory and have been extensively involved with NUCCA and NUCCRA (the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research Association.) Dr. Keith Denton and Dr. Teresa Palmer are Board Certified by NUCCA and practice in strict accordance with the standards of Dr. R. Gregory and NUCCA standards of practice.  Dr. Palmer was the first female board certified NUCCA instructor (1985).  Dr. Denton is the longest actively practicing board certified NUCCA instructor (1985).

Precise, Gentle, Objective Chiropractic Care

  • Low-force spinal correction – Only gentle adjustments
  • Objective measurements - Pre and post measurements so you can see the difference
  • Corrections that last - No need to be adjusted over and over again. 
  • Transparency – Honest and up front answers about your care, your results, and your dollars.

Whole Body Adjustment

The NUCCA procedure gently restores the skull, spine and hips back to their proper position.  Correcting the spine can alleviate stress, pain, and discomfort allowing the body to heal and function properly. This takes pressure off the nerves and allows the body to return to its natural, healthy state. Children, athletes, supermoms and the elderly benefit from our gentle upper cervical chiropractic care. This is a whole body adjustment performed by our NUCCA doctors .
