Chiropractor in Bellingham, WA

Dr. Todd Smith, D.C. is the owner and chiropractor of Bellingham Spinal Care and specializes in NUCCA chiropractic care. NUCCA is a gentle, highly precise method of correcting the spine and does not involve twisting, cracking, or popping of the spinal joints.

NUCCA stands for National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) www.nucca.com. The NUCCA method of chiropractic is a specialty within the practice of chiropractor. By utilizing precision X-rays, physics, and biomechanical properties of the spine NUCCA chiropractor/doctors make controlled, gentle, and predictable corrections to the patient’s spine. Results are instantly measurable and verified by pre and post-adjustment measurements. The focus of our work is on the skull and cervical spine and their influence on the central nervous system. The brain and spinal cord are responsible for all body functions, the ability to stay healthy and adapt to the environment. It is for these reasons proper alignment of the head and neck should be checked and corrected in order to balance your head over your spine to allow for proper nerve/brain function.

With only a few hundred chiropractors in the world practicing the NUCCA method of chiropractic, we see patients coming to our clinic from as far away as Alaska, Montana, and Arizona. NUCCA chiropractic care is a safe, drug-free, natural treatment for many health conditions and their associated symptoms, including back and neck pain, headaches (migraines), chronic pain syndromes, fibromyalgia, and more. At Bellingham Spinal Care you’ll receive precision care using a gentle and friendly approach from our chiropractor.
