What is Upper Cervical Care?
Precise, Gentle, Effective Chiropractic Care
Since 1961, the Blair Chiropractic Technique has been redefining the way people think about chiropractic care and how it relieves pain and improves overall wellness. By targeting spinal misalignments through a series of advanced diagnostic tools, our specially trained Blair practitioners are able to gently correct and realign the upper cervical spine so that the body can naturally return to its natural, healthy and aligned state. Our goal is to create lasting improvements in the lives of our patients.
Redefining Chiropractic Care
Many people view Chiropractic as a method of treating certain symptoms, such as back and neck pain, headaches, numbness, asthma, etc. All symptoms, however, are EFFECTS which must have a CAUSE and the true objective of Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic is to locate and correct that cause.
In doing that, the symptoms will usually go away due to the natural process of healing that occurs when the nerve interference is removed. It is important to note, too, that the symptoms are only the ‘tip of the iceberg” and indicate some type of unhealthy state within the body: simply treating the symptoms does nothing to make the body healthier.
The brain and spinal cord make up the Central Nervous System, which controls and coordinates all body functions. Neurons in the brain send low voltage electrical impulses to all body cells. The nerves act as electrical “wires” to carry messages: ‘motor’ nerves carrying messages from the brain to body cells, and ‘sensory’ nerves informing the brain of the body’s condition and external stimuli.
If the brain to body communication is unimpeded, HEALTH is the natural result. But a misalignment can impede the electrical flow, causing dysfunction that will ultimately produce pain and disease. The goal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic is to locate and correct these misalignments to allow the Brain to Body Communication to restore and maintain health.
The chief problem area is in the upper neck where the skull attaches to the spine. In this area, a vertebra called the atlas can misalign and press on the spinal cord as it exits from the skull. Since all nerves going down the spine and out to various parts of the body pass by this point, an atlas misalignment could affect any part of your body. Because the skull rests on the atlas, the balance of your entire spine depends on the normal fitting of these two structures.
Therefore, when the atlas misaligns, it puts pressure on the spinal cord and affects the balance of your spine, producing pressure on spinal nerves in lower areas of the spine. The Upper Cervical method of spinal correction is aimed at restoring your atlas to its normal position.
Simple Approach. Profound Results.
Change is not always the result of something dramatic. Often, the most profound changes come from the smallest shifts. In this same way, the Blair Technique has been creating lasting change in the lives of our patients. The gentlest, most precise adjustments can guide the body back into alignment, allowing it to heal itself and function at its full potential.
Once health and balance has been regained, spinal check-ups at regular intervals will assure the patient that harmful disease producing nerve interferences have not returned. Upper Cervical Chiropractic contributes to better Life, Health, Harmony and Happiness. They all depend on the normal function of the nervous system. Once people have experienced Upper Cervical Chiropractic and enjoyed the many benefits of this unique and natural health care choice, they are motivated to introduce their family and friends to this superior alternative.
Our offices commonly see patients with the following conditions:
• Meniere’s Disease
• Post Concussion Syndrome
• Migraine Headaches
• Low Back Pain
• Neck Pain
• Tri-geminal Neuralgia
This is by no means an exhaustive list. Blair Upper Cervical Care has the goal of restoring function. In many cases, disease processes and syndromes recover following Upper Cervical Corrective Care.
This is the result of the body’s recuperative and healing tendencies taking over after interference is removed. Nature needs no help, just no interference!
