NUCCA is a highly precise, gentle and powerful form of chiropractic. NUCCA uses mathematics and physics to figure out how to fix each person’s alignment. There is no “one size fits all” with NUCCA. NUCCA chiropractors use precise x-rays and detailed analysis before and after adjustments, to make sure your body’s alignment has been fixed. There is no twisting and cracking with NUCCA, and with time, the adjustments hold for months.

Do You Believe In Natural Healing?

Do You Want Long Lasting Pain Relief?

Then NUCCA & GSC’s Corrective Process Might Be Right for You!

How the GSC Process Started

Gardner Schofield Chiropractic (GSC) was founded in 2010 by Dr. F.J. Schofield and Dr. Korie Gardner Schofield. They had no idea the journey they were about to go on. After the first two years in practice, they both felt that traditional chiropractic care was NOT getting the results they thought it would when they graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic. The old way just wasn’t working.

            The patients that were getting better had to come in almost every week for adjustments or their pain would come right back. Then there were many patients not getting better at all. Dr. FJ’s back injury from college was coming back and Dr. Korie’s allergies from college were also coming back. They knew they needed to learn a more advanced and effective way to actually correct spinal alignment instead of just cracking backs and providing temporary relief. Because of this, Dr. FJ and Dr. Korie started attending chiropractic technique seminars but they did not find the answer they were looking for until…

            In January of 2012, at an Orthospinology seminar in Snellville, Georgia. Dr. FJ and Dr. Korie received their first upper cervical specific chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Ken Humber. He showed them how their entire body was out of alignment and he could precisely adjust the atlas bone to fix their overall alignment. Then Dr. Ken told stories of patients with vertigo, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Migraines, chronic neck pain, back pain, sciatica, Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia, severe sciatica, stenosis, disc bulges, herniations and more all being healed by upper cervical chiropractic. Then he explained how many of his patients would hold their adjustment for months which never happened with regular chiropractic. This was a whole new level of chiropractic and they both knew they had to learn.

            It took about a year for GSC to get all the equipment and become the only upper cervical chiropractic practice in West Bend. At this time Dr. Korie would step away from the practice to raise Freddie their son and a few years later Addie their daughter.

The Foundation of the Process Was Found

Everything changed again, at Palmer Homecoming in the summer of 2015, Dr. FJ mentioned to his friends; Dr. Liz and Dr. Zach Molland that he was struggling to master Upper Cervical Chiropractic and did not like using the Orthospinology instrument. That’s when they recommended he visit their mentor; Dr. Matthew McNally; a master NUCCA practitioner. In November, Dr. FJ went to visit Dr. McNally and was blown away at how effective a NUCCA hand adjustment could be. Dr. McNally explained with hand adjusting you can feel the resistance of the misalignment so you know exactly when it is gone and the alignment has been fixed. With instruments, you can’t feel anything so you have to guess. He then told Dr. FJ it was not too late and that he could learn to hand adjust also.

Dr. FJ again had to get some new equipment but as soon as he had the right headpieces and platforms to stand on to get the right leverage he started hand adjusting with NUCCA right away. It was difficult at first like any new skill, but with time and a lot of hard work, it started working. Dr. FJ was getting results he had never dreamed of before. Many patients were holding their adjustments for months. Some even more than a year. With holding for long periods, their bodies were healing and their problems were going away completely.

Adding To the Process

This was what he had envisioned years before; patients driving from all over Wisconsin to have the cause of their problem fixed and get long-lasting relief. NUCCA is the most important technique they do by far, but Dr. FJ noticed some patients were still having pain while they were holding so he wanted to find a way to help the body recover faster. His brother in law always raved about how his chiropractor in Dubuque, IA got amazing results with a very unusual chiropractic technique. Dr. FJ went to visit Dr. Jen Klein and she taught him a technique called D.N.F.T. which stands for Directional Non-Force Technique.

This, Dr. FJ felt was a great compliment to NUCCA and he started using an abbreviated version of D.N.F.T. to adjust his patients when they were holding their NUCCA adjustments. The results his patients were receiving continued to get better and better, but there was one type of case he was still struggling to help and that was patients with disc injuries. Then as fate would have it, one day while talking to one of his mentors; Dr. Jon Murray and explaining his problems, Dr. Jon recommended he look at the Cox Flexion-Distraction technique.

Dr. FJ, a week or two later received a call from his table guy asking if he was interested in buying a Cox 8 table. This was the exact table needed to do the Cox technique. Believing this must be fate, he got the table and started doing Cox on many of his patients. It was a phenomenal compliment to NUCCA and his patients with disc bulges, herniations, stenosis, sciatica, arm, and leg pain loved it and healed faster than before with NUCCA only.

A Process Unlike Any Other

 Dr. FJ realized he had created a unique system for correcting alignment and helping the body heal and uncoil while holding. He decided to call this system “GSC’s Corrective Process”.

As the only NUCCA chiropractor in West Bend, and with the amazing results the Corrective Process was delivering, the demand for their skills kept growing. With 2 small kids at home, and possibly more on the way, Dr. Korie would not be back for years. So, they decided to add Dr. Terry Mellom to the GSC team in 2017. 

Dr. Terry was interested in NUCCA and DNFT and learned both quickly. She also brought her love for taking care of kids and pregnant women. She is certified in the Webster technique and is finishing up her ICPA diplomate; an extremely rigorous course focused on chiropractic care for kids and pregnant mothers. She is the only chiropractor in West Bend with this certification. She also has her advanced level certification in Activator. 

With the practice continuing to grow, they added a third chiropractor; Dr. Josh Gurrola in 2019.

Dr. Josh began his NUCCA training while still in school at Palmer College of Chiropractic because NUCCA was the only chiropractic technique that helped him and his wife. Dr. Josh is also certified in Activator, and trained in soft tissue and Matrix Re-patterning. Dr. Josh hopes to change lives with the NUCCA technique, the same way it changed his own.
