Orthogonal Imaging

If the decision is made to proceed with care, a specialized series of images is taken. These images allow the doctor to calculate an accurate, safe, and gentle formula for your correction.

NUCCA Chiropractic Correction

The NUCCA correction is different than a traditional chiropractic adjustment. A gentle and controlled contact is used to correct the alignment of the head and cervical vertebrae. Several post-adjustment checks are used to confirm that normal spinal mechanics and nerve function have been restored.

Hello Dr. Rumsey,I'm 59 years old, live near Portland Or., and am writing tosay thank you, as I believe your website literally saved mylife! About 6 months ago, I was in dire straits; couldn't sleepuninterrupted for more than two hours at a time, had ringing in my ears, severe dizziness, & at times, felt like my brain would move inside my head (no one understood this). I thought maybe I had sleep apnea or allergies, but nobody seemed to be able to link the symptoms (I don't take... any meds, so it wasn't drug related). For years, my wife had told me I had forward head posture, and Iagreed, but I couldn't figure out how to fix it & I also didn't linkmy forward head posture with the aforementioned issues. I tried neck exercises & posture correctors, but nothing seemed to fix my forward head posture. During the past year, I went to see 2 doctors, who thought my symptoms were related to allergies), 2 traditional chiropractors, an ENT, & even made a trip to the ER. After a few weeks of intense, on- line research, I found your website. It made sense to me that my misalignment was leading to lack of CSF & blood... the "Condition #3 Changes in Fluid Dynamics" section of your site SAVED MY LIFE!! I showed my wife, and she agreed, this might be the cause So the next day, I found Dr Joseph Perrin in Vancouver, Wa, anexcellent certified NUCCA Chiropractor. Dr Perrin x-rayed me, & my atlas was 8.5 degrees out of alignment... it was this way, despite just two weeks prior seeing my traditional chiropractor for an adjustment (traditional obviously wasn't working for me!) After my first adjustment, I slept for 6, uninterrupted hours, andDREAMED, for the first time in many months.Now, after 4 months of adjustments, I have virtually no ringing in my ears, no dizziness, and the "brain movement" has stopped. It was all definitely related to misalignment! I’m just writing to let you know that you are doing great work, and helping people worldwide! I will not go back to my traditional chiropractor for an adjustment- only NUCCA from now on! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF ME HEART! (my family thanks you too!) Sincerely,Jeff Zemanread more

Dr Rumsey is highly a knowledgeable NUCCA chiropractor. His treatment on my neck has been a serious life changer in the life of fibromyalgia. I drive 300 miles round trip for my appt and it’s 100 percent worth it. He is kind and takes his time to make sure he’s gotten my adjustment just right.

Dr. Rumsey is amazing!! I’ve been seeing him for over a year and he has really helped manage my post-concussion symptoms. When I first moved to Alaska 6 months after my first concussion, I went to a different chiropractor for one appointment and KNEW I could not go back- they had no idea what they were doing. After an extensive search, I found Dr. Rumsey. He’s the only NUCCA chiropractor in all of Alaska, so I knew he was well practiced and knew his stuff! My experiences with him have only... solidified my initial thoughts. I definitely enjoy coming for my appointments because I know I’m in good hands (and the jellybeans are a plus, for sure!). Thank you so much, Dr. Rumsey!read more

I have a very rare neurological disorder called Juvenile Parkinson's Disease. Before I was diagnosed and got on the dopamine replacement medications, I was completely debilitated. I could hardly walk and had little to no balance upon standing up. NUCCA was the only therapy I have tried that helped my gait. I have seen several NUCCA providers and Dr. Rumsey is hands down, the best of the best. He has a heart of gold and helped me significantly. I have about a 2 degree or more head tilt. His work... is miraculous. If you are considering Rumsey Spinal care, I would hands down, reccomend Dr. Rumsey. I have seen probably close to 15 chiropractors in my life (military family) and they are not all one in the same. This man heals the body. And I could feel the adjustments immediately! I have not had a NUCCA provider since moving here to TN and I wish I still had Dr. Rumsey.read more

I’ve been to multiple chiropractors over the years, but my lower back has never felt stronger then when Dr Rumsey adjusts me. No cracking, popping, or pulling in his treatment. it is shocking the difference it will make with such little pressure on your neck! Give it a try for any back or neck pain!

For years I had constant headaches, from just annoying to unable to get out of bed. After just a few adjustments I would could go a couple of days without pain. Now I occasionally have pain but when I do it is short lived and completely manageable. I highly recommend him.

I was in terrible pain when I went to see Dr. Rumsey at the advice of a family member. I had incurred a head and shoulder injury and the pain and muscle stiffness was getting progressively worse with each new day. I was having severe headaches, muscle pain and even the side of my face and inner ear hurt as well. I noticed an improvement after the very first adjustment! I really couldn't believe it, considering the treatment is so gentle. I am so thankful for Dr. Rumsey and this... specialized treatment. I am a true believer now and would encourage anyone still suffering with head or neck pain to give it a try.read more

Dr. Rumsey was very thorough and professional. He took the time to ensure that what he offered would be beneficial to my specific situation rather than jump right in and start adjusting and charging for it. The office is always very clean and he never appears rushed. Very polite and comfortable. Couldn't recommend it more!

Chiropractic 101

In my experience most people who go to the chiropractor don't care too much to know exactly what is being done and why, as long as the problem they come in for gets better. Given how busy most of us are and how many things there are to keep track of every day, this is completely understandable. However, I also think this is a big mistake, and I'll tell you why.

scalene muscles can create instability for chiropractic adjustment

A Possible Source Of Upper Cervical Correction Instability

It's frustrating when you don't hold your alignment well after an upper cervical correction. Especially when your quality of life while maintaining that alignment is substantially better than when not. If the reason for instability is due to a correction that's not as complete as it could be, then at least you have something that can be improved upon. But sometimes you've got a great correction that should hold well, but for some reason it just doesn't. You're careful with your sleep position, work positions, you stop sparring with Chuck Norris on Friday nights, but nothing seems to help, and you're having to get adjusted more frequently than you should.

Mental Illness, Criminality & Chiropractic

One of the great missed opportunities in the history of chiropractic health care is it’s failure to pursue the success it had established in the realm of mental health care. From the 1920’s to the 1950’s a number of chiropractic institutions operated as care facilities for the mentally insane. Clear View Sanitarium and Forest Park Sanitarium are probably the most well-known. The records of these facilities illustrate the fact that chiropractic (properly applied, of course) […]
