About Us

Dr. Bruce Giffen has been practicing NUCCA Chiropractic since 1998.  His Bachelor's degree was earned in 1985 from California State University, Sacramento, California.  He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California in 1998.  Upon graduation, he and his young family moved to Chicago in order to work with Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, Sr., which he did for over three years.  In Dr. Giffen's opinion, Dr. Dickholtz was one of the two best chiropractors in the world practicing the NUCCA Chiropractic technique at that time. In 2004, he opened the office in Palatine, IL to serve the North, West, and Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland.  Dr. Giffen is a family man, sharing life with his wife, Polya, and his three children, Nick, Mary and Susie. 

"I have chosen NUCCA because it corrects the main issues to many of the reasons why people develop health problems that cause pain and dysfunction.  Without any cracking, popping or twisting, we can go to the primary misalignment that causes the other misalignments of the spine and pinches critically important nerve pathways.  My greatest desire in practice is to see people get well."

Dr. Jordan Peel graduated from the "Fountainhead" at Palmer College of Chiropractic. Prior to getting her Doctorate of Chiropractic she graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor degree in Kinesiology and a specialization in Exercise Science. Dr. Peel was chosen to participate in the Clinic Abroad Program in Brazil and qualified for the preceptorship program in which she interned with Dr. Bruce Giffen of Giffen Spinal Care during her last term. Dr. Peel gained proficiency in other chiropractic techniques and chooses to practice solely NUCCA chiropractic.

“I chose NUCCA because this is where I know true healing takes place. Having studied other forms of chiropractic (cracking bones and adjusting 3 times a week), I was not satisfied with the healing I saw. NUCCA provides a correction at the start of care where the root of the problem originates. It is truly a blessing to treat people for low back and neck pain, while watching many other symptoms disappear, such as vision issues, bowel abnormalitiesmigraines, and so on. By only adjusting when needed, the body is able to stabilize and finally start to heal.”
