As an avid cyclist, Dr. Nowakowski realizes the value of body balance.  Whether your performance is hindered by physiological short leg or muscular imbalance in the pelvis the real trouble is the joint between the base of your skull and your first vertebrae.  This is due to the the fact that all the nerves that run our body and help us stay balanced and energetic start at this important junction.

Look for some of Dr. Nowakowski's cycling events here.  For a huge event, go to this page, I have a new best friend!  

The value of NUCCA Chiropractic to cyclists is explained in detail by Lennard Zinn's book Zinn's Cycling Primer, in the chapter starting on page 75 of his book.  He recommends the Upper Cervical Adjustment by a chiropractor who uses accurate and precise x-rays to determine the angular offset of C-1 vertebrae in three dimensions.  The resulting three-dimensional vector allows him/her to direct the force of the adjustment to the C-1 (atlas) that allows it to return to a level and untwisted position.  Dr. Nowakowski is Colorado's only Board Certified NUCCA doctor. 

In 2001 the International Chiropractic Review published a bike study in the January/February issue.  This study involved noncyclists and avid road riders.  The results of cycling was less pelvic rotation and more equal weight distribution on each foot.  So the pelvic alignment of cyclists was as a direct result of their riding.  

Another great book for those of us over 50 who want to continue to be active is Roy Mallack's Bike for Life.

Dr. Nowakowski is listed in the Top 3 Chiropractors in Colorado Springs!

I want to thank all my patients who've been there for me!  You are all amazing people and I sincerely value the trust you show in me.
