Why We’re Different

The Blair Upper Cervical Technique

Upper cervical chiropractic care enhances the function of the nervous system by focusing on the top of the spine to correct irritation and inflammation, which is called a subluxation. Within the field of chiropractic, there are many techniques utilized to correct vertebral subluxations. At Vitality Specific, we specialize in the Blair upper cervical technique to determine how the vertebrae have misaligned and correct the subluxation, restoring proper nervous system function. Ultimately, the goal of upper cervical chiropractic is to provide comprehensive care with minimal interference in order to restore brain to body communication.

Research and clinical studies spanning more than 50 years have shown that, if there is a vertebral subluxation at the very top of the neck (called the atlas or axis bone), it causes the entire spine and body to become unhealthy and unstable, which compromises the nervous system. These studies have also found that, if the upper neck is carefully studied and precisely adjusted, the entire spine will regain health and stability without the need for adjustments throughout the rest of the spine.

A Gentle Alternative

This non-invasive healing process is achieved with the use of one of the most advanced three-dimensional x-ray studies of the neck and spine. The precision of this study allows for the most specific, custom-tailored adjustments to be made for each individual, restoring proper communication between the brain and the rest of the body. This technique also uses heat-sensitive instrumentation, neurological tests and other means for determining when vertebral subluxation is present.
