Welcome to Bellingham Spinal Care

A

Dr. Todd Smith, D.C. is the owner 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 chiropractic. By utilizing precision x-rays, physics, and bio mechanical properties of the spine NUCCA doctors make controlled, gentle and predictable corrections to the patients spine.  Results are instantly measurable and verified by pre and post adjustment measurements. The focus of our work is between the skull and cervical spine and its 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 chiropactors in the world practicing the NUCCA method of chiropratic, 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.
