Avoiding Hip Surgery with NUCCA Chiropractic in San Diego: Alignment and Body Compensation

Did you know that most cases of hip pain don’t require surgery? In fact, many people can find relief from their hip pain without ever going under the knife. One of the best ways to avoid hip surgery is by taking advantage of NUCCA Chiropractic in San Diego.

At Nimbus Brain & Spine, we utilize the latest protocols (NUCCA) to alleviate many causes of pain at the root cause. We specialize in correcting alignment and body compensation issues that can lead to hip pain.


What is NUCCA Chiropractic?

Well, this is an entire blog in itself.

NUCCA is a gentle, specific approach to correcting upper neck misalignments; simply put, helping connect your brain to your body in a way that allows you to heal better.


How can NUCCA help my hip pain?

There are many ways in which hip pain is created; too many to list here! However, with NUCCA, we have looked at the body as a whole and found the root cause of many underlying health issues, such as hip pain.

What we have found with 90% of people who have a main complaint of hip pain is that the issue isn’t in the hip. YES, you read that right! This is because when your body is out of alignment, it starts to create compensations in the body, which lead to postural, neurological, and muscular imbalances. Specifically, when your spine has misalignments—and even more specifically, right down to the root cause—your upper neck (upper cervical) is misaligned.

This can lead to asymmetrical wear and tear on the body, which can cause pain in the hips. NUCCA Chiropractic in San Diego can help correct these misalignments.

How do you know you have an upper cervical misalignment?

Symptoms can vary greatly, but often people experience pain in the hips, neck, and shoulders. Other common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), insomnia, and anxiety.

Outside of having these symptoms, it’s best to get checked by a certified NUCCA expert and not just a regular chiropractor. NUCCA can help correct these misalignments and restore balance to the body to get rid of the symptoms by getting to the root cause.

Here you can find a list of the best NUCCA doctors near you! Make sure you get a full postural exam, neurological exam, and NUCCA-specific x-rays so you know where your health is at!
