Our Danville wellness center is very popular with patients looking to improve health and vitality while preventing pain from starting in the first place. Patients also travel from the surrounding areas of Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Concord, Lafayette, and Martinez as an alternative to traditional medicine. 

Each patient receives the care and attention they need through a personalized chiropractic wellness plan to deliver powerful results. 

Back Pain Treatment

Pain is a sign that something is wrong with your body. Improper alignment of your spine creates many different problems, the most obvious of which is pain. Patients who are feeling frustrated due to unresolved pain often find NUCCA chiropractic care an effective pain relief solution as an alternative to traditional medicine. 

Most traditional medicine focuses on treating the pain itself rather than the cause of the pain. Altina Chiropractic specializes in the NUCCA technique for upper cervical treatments. These treatments are a part of our personalized wellness program that addresses pain at its root without the aid of prescription medication or invasive surgery.

Preventing Pain While Increasing Health and Wellness

Our patients get control of their life to help them have an enjoyable, thriving lifestyle. They can engage with friends, family and their children or go on active adventures as a result of our chiropractic care. 

Some patients visit our Danville wellness center to get back to a place of health and wellness. Other patients have severe pain that needs treatment. 

We help each person to achieve their optimal level of health so that they can get back to living their lives.


Effective Chiropractic Care With NUCCA

The NUCCA technique is different from the techniques used by other chiropractors. The technique consists of gentle adjustments that are made to the patient's neck without needing to "twist, pop, or crack." This is a relief for many patients who are not comfortable with the idea of neck adjustment. Our patients experience pain relief, restored health, and improved mobility resulting from the NUCCA technique.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • Dr. Nhu is a great doc that takes the time and effort to really pay attention to the little details that end up creating the biggest difference. I have been under chiropractic care for 10+ years and as a rugby player, have had chronic low back and neck pain due to the numerous injuries I've accrued over the years. Despite receiving consistent care practically my whole life, Dr. Nhu was the first to really get me feeling any sort of ease and showed me what it's like to truly feel pain free. I always thought I needed to be racked and cracked, but under NUCCA upper cervical care, I've never experienced such a gentle and noninvasive procedure with such outstanding results. I have felt better and have continued to improve almost immediately since my first adjustment. Thanks Dr. Nhu!

  • I started under Lisa's care because I was having frequent headaches (2 a week or so) and wondered if a misalignment in my spine could be causing it. I had tried homeopathy, colon cleansing, acupuncture, among other things, which didn't seem to fix the problem. After receiving NUCCA treatment, and confirming that everything had been done correctly and that my shoulders and hips were level, the frequency of my headaches didn't change much. We concluded that a misaligned spine may not have been a contributing factor to my headaches. However, Lisa asked me many questions about my lifestyle and habits, and she noticed that I was not drinking enough water. I started drinking 64oz of water a day (from drinking less than 16 previously), and I noticed that my headaches got much less frequent. So I was very grateful that Lisa was not tunnel-visioned on solely improving my well being through NUCCA but was taking in all the information and making suggestions for my health that ended up benefiting me greatly. She also suggested that I take probiotics to improve my digestion, and I've also seen benefits through that. I would recommend Lisa to anyone, because she will find a way to solve your problem, whether through NUCCA or something else.

  • As a big guy who likes to lift heavyweights,  I put a lot of stress on my body.  Not to mention the injuries that come from living an active life as a young man getting older. Each visit with Dr. Lisa left me feeling new and refreshed. The stiffness of the neck lessened over time and the stiff back every morning became a thing of the past.  She was very professional,  even if she seemed to take joy being a short woman making a big guy whimper as she found the spot that was unaligned.  After each adjustment,  I often felt more awake and energized. Ready to go to the gym and start creating new problems for her to fix next time." Arthur -power lifting hobbyist.

  • I strongly recommend Dr. Lisa Nhu at Atlina Chiropractic! I have experienced back pain since my early 20s and have seen several different chiropractors over the years. Dr. Lisa practices NUCCA upper cervical chiropractic care and it is better than any treatment I have previously received. Instead of having your spine cracked or popped into place, NUCCA adjustments are very gentle and far more pleasant. I felt better almost immediately after beginning treatment and have been holding adjustments longer. I couldn't be happier with the care I have received from Dr. Lisa and Atlina Chiropractic.

  • I went to Lisa with very bad lower back pain.  She asked about my medical history in detail and took an X-ray of my spine.  She explained how vertebrae work and which one was causing me problems.   She treated my back, neck, and knees very gently using the drop table and the activator.  I always felt very relaxed after her careful treatment.  Throughout my treatment, she always asked how I did in the previous week and offered suggestions on what I should do for relaxation and exercises to do at home.  She also always followed up on my water consumption at each visit, which she explained was vital to my recovery. Lisa is a very loving and caring person and she took very good care of me.  My overall health benefited greatly from the knowledge she shared with me.

  • I love Dr.Nhu! She has such an incredible attention to detail with her work, I had two years of chiropractic treatment before I ended up in her capable hands. My previous chiropractor moved on from his practice which left me a little in the lurch. I am very picky on those that I will work with in regard to my health. We've all seen or known of friends and neighbors that had poor experience with providers. I met her and she is very personable so I thought I would give it a shot. Her intake of me was both thorough and easy. I normally hate that stuff, but she made the process as painless as one can. When you go to your appointment she just does not ask you about your neck, but she puts you in the frame of
    Mind to speak. My wife says I do not communicate as much as I should, but when it comes to my health she gets me to talk. It's been a wonderful experience. I highly suggest you give her a try. She's just great.

  • I have been a patient for a few months.  I have had chiropractic services done in the past so it's a space I know well.  When my last chiropractor left his practice I was left a bit in a lurch.  There are many in this field that should probably not be, but are. So I did not do anything.  I met Lisa Nhu and her demeanor and attitude made me feel comfortable enough to take the plunge. Without treatment for months I was dealing with numbness, pain and discomfort.  So much so I made that my new normal.  So that was the wreckage I brought to her.  Her approach is informative, and she explains things in a way I can understand.  Her being able to take a complex subject and put it in laymen's terms is a testament to her training and experience. Man does it show.  She does not focus on one area, she wants to know about your overall wellness.  She has a genuine passion for what she does and it shows.  But so do the results.  I have been holding for weeks now. I may not always hold and will need further adjustments, but her goal is to get me to hold as long as I can.  She is someone that is healing and empowering.  Those are two attributes we can all use right now. Do yourself a favor, give her go. If she can help, she will.”
