Why Choose NUCCA Chiropractors?


X-rays taken prior to the first correction allow us to “see” the exact position of your spine. Careful analysis reveals a precise correction formula used to restore your spine to its proper alignment.


NUCCA, a gentle chiropractic method, avoids neck or back "popping" or "twisting." This precise technique lets Upland's upper cervical chiropractors work smartly yet gently. You'll be surprised by its gentleness and precision!


By correcting the entire spine and not just the problem areas, the body is able to stay corrected for longer periods of time, allowing for better recovery.

Why Clients Love Us

“I’ve been to 4 different chiropractors with the same result: crack crack all done. Come home with no relief. After much research I decided to try NUCCA and found the Atlas brain and spine chiropractic right in my area. Best decision by far on my health journey!! I absolutely hated every crack I would get from a regular chiropractor (I would get very anxious and cry). Atlas brain and spine is so different with the lightest touch, but with the best results!! Prior to getting NUCCA adjustments I couldn’t exercise except for walking, no jumping, running or weights. After a few months of adjustments I felt confident to start up a exercise regiment again. Boy has it been nice to move the way I do with no pain. Tanya and the other workers are awesome too! No issues with scheduling. I recommend this to anyone who will listen.”

Leah L

“I’ve been going to Atlas brain and spine for a couple months and have noticed major improvement in my neck pain, headaches and vertigo. I was skeptical in the beginning because I had seen other traditional chiropractors with no success but after the first adjustment I could already feel a difference. My head felt straight and lighter. Dr. Murray is very thorough, knowledgeable and takes his time to answer any questions you may have. Dr and his staff have been a blessing and I’m thankful to have found such a wonderful place to help me on this wellness journey. I would definitely recommend to others!”

Amber H

“Dr. Murray is amazing. I have to admit, when I first heard about NUCCA care, I was skeptical. Isn’t chiro care supposed to include a bunch of popping and cracking? But since my Cirque performing friend gave the recommendation, I trusted her judgment. And after experiencing whiplash from a car accident, I can say with confidence that his chiropractic care is the main reason I am out of pain and more aligned perhaps than I was before! Additionally, Tania and Jasmine are incredibly welcoming and professional, with excellent communication to help me stay on top of my appointments. Super grateful to have found them and would recommend to anyone.”

Jennifer H

“I am so thankful for Atlas Brain and Spine. Their holistic approach has succeeded in alleviating pain, regaining mobility and noticeably strengthening and balancing muscles along my spine.
They dealt with the root cause of my symptoms, and as a result, I no longer suffer debilitating neck and shoulder spasms and headaches. My only regret is that I didn’t book an appointment sooner.”

Sherri K

“Dr. Murray is a phenomenal chiropractor. He practices a specialized technique for the upper cervical spine called NUCCA, and it’s very gentle and specific to your X-rays. I’ve been getting chiropractic care since I was 11 years old, but upper cervical chiropractic care is a game changer. It’s helped me with my neck and back pain, as well as calming me and ultimately helping me with my anxiety, digestive issues and insomnia. Dr. Murray’s adjustments truly help me heal and feel better every time and he is even my go to for headache treatment. You’re in good hands with Dr. Murray and Dr. Zeina at Atlas Brain and Spine. The whole staff and office is truly such a blessing to the inland empire. Highly recommend checking out this place.”

What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a specialized branch of chiropractic care that concentrates on the assessment, diagnosis, and correction of misalignments in the uppermost part of the spine, specifically the atlas and axis vertebrae. These misalignments, known as subluxations, can disrupt the proper function of the nervous system, potentially leading to a wide range of health issues. Upper Cervical Chiropractors are trained to employ precise, gentle adjustments to restore the correct alignment of these vertebrae, with the goal of promoting the body’s innate capacity to heal itself. This approach offers a holistic, non-invasive, and drug-free alternative for individuals seeking relief from pain and improved overall well-being by addressing the root causes of their health concerns.

What is NUCCA?

NUCCA (a.k.a. National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association,) is a specialized approach to chiropractic care that focuses on the alignment and adjustment of the upper cervical spine, particularly the atlas and axis vertebrae.
