Pre and Post x-rays

Results you can see…a procedure you can trust.

The NUCCA technique utilizes a series of diagnostic exams to confirm if a misalignment is present. Among these, the taking of pre (before) and post (after) x-rays are of the greatest importance. On your first visit to our office a set of 3 films will be taken and later analyzed. After your adjustment, these films will be repeated, and analyzed in the same fashion mentioned before. These x-rays will then be compared and will give our doctors visual and scientific evidence that the correction was made. All NUCCA doctors must undergo rigorous training in x-ray positioning and analysis to meet the high standards for acceptable x-rays. Each film is scrutinized over and over in order to ensure consistency and accuracy.

X-ray radiation Facts:

State law allows an individual a maximum of 5,000 mRem (5 Rem) of exposure per year.

  • CAT scan of the head = 200 mRem
  • NUCCA film series = 7-10 mRem

You would have to take around 67 NUCCA x-rays to equal one CAT scan of the head!

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Thank you for your excellent care of Bill and myself. With Bill in a permanent wheel chair, you have kept him comfortable and without pain. He is now 83!!! I am another one of your success stories. At 32 (now 81) I was in constant pain. The only time it wasn’t severe was when I was sitting, and being a mother of 4 that was a difficult situation. I put off seeing you as I thought you were a “quack!"
    Marcia & Bill B.
  • "I am pain free and have regained full strength and sensation back into my arm. I continue to see Dr. Cripe because I am a very active person who needs to remain pain free. Thanks to Dr. Cripe, I am now the person I was before the injury took place. Thanks Doc!"

  • "What an extraordinary experience it is coming to the Cripe Upper Cervical Center. Dr. Brian and his caring staff are the most professional and informative staff that I have seen in years. I’ve been battling neck issues for a year and a half seeing countless doctors and chiropractors. I received instant relief after my first adjustment and continue to improve daily. You truly are a Godsend."

  • "What a privilege for myself and my son to be patient of the week at the Cripe Upper Cervical Center. We are very happy to have known Glenn Cripe for 12 years now. Before I found Glenn Cripe no one could fix my neck, which is very prone to coming out of alignment. We’ve been coming here for years now and couldn’t be more pleased!"

  • "I feel better than ever! I can run faster, and excel in soccer with no headaches. I would like to grow up to be an upper cervical doctor!"
