The weakest area of your spine is the point where your head connects to your neck. Constant stress or injury to the muscles and ligaments that support this area result in what is known as an Upper Cervical Subluxation (Vertebral misalignment of the upper neck). This can effect not only the neck but the entire body via the nervous system. The cervical spine protects the most vital parts of the nervous system that communicate to our entire body. Making the upper cervical spine the gateway to optimal health!
Blair chiropractic is a highly trained analysis and adjusting technique.
Blair specific x-rays provide the blueprint that your doctor needs to correct your spine conservatively. Image guided analysis and treatment allows for an individualized approach that is unique to each patient’s needs and spinal structure. This critical diagnostic tool eliminates the guesswork allowing your doctor to engineer the most precise, gentle, and effective spinal correction.
Infrared thermography is a measurement of nervous system health. When stressed, the performance of the body suffers over time. This stress response presents as heat or inflammation in the body. This test pinpoints abnormal thermal patterns indicating problem areas needing immediate attention.
The thermography test is performed each visit to measure the function of the nervous system to properly gauge the response to care.
We use this test in combination with other tests to determine several things:
The leg balance test is a measure of functional leg length. If your leg balance test reveals one leg is shorter than the other, it indicates that the spinal muscle tone is imbalanced. Imbalanced muscles are an indicator that the nerve system is irritated and causing one side of your body to be tighter than the other.
When an Upper Cervical Subluxation is present the body is imbalanced.
Balanced legs are most often a normal finding and indication that no adjustment is required.
Many patients are relieved by the comfort and precision of the Blair adjustment. Using specialized upper cervical adjusting tables, a precise, gentle, and effective adjustment can be made without twisting, popping, or cracking the neck.
The goal of the Blair Chiropractic Technique is to achieve the best state of correction with the fewest adjustments possible.
After your adjustment you will be guided to a designated area to rest your spine. The post adjustment resting period is necessary so that your nervous system can return to a normal state of function, thereby facilitating healing and repair in the body. The post rest is an essential part in “holding” the adjustment and helps to prevent a dependence on frequent adjustments to maintain progress.
