What Is Blair Upper Cervical Care?

A Very Effective, Safe, Gentle and Precise Chiropractic Technique

Although most people think that all chiropractors use the same methods to treat their patients, in reality there are a wide variety of chiropractic techniques available. At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Las Vegas, we specialize in a particular type of upper cervical treatment called Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care. A Blair Upper Cervical Care adjustment, or “correction,” is painless, extremely gentle and very precise. This is a low impact correction, with absolutely no cracking, twisting or popping of the neck. Instead, a light and controlled force is delivered by hand to a specific location on your upper spine (usually the atlas vertebrae (top vertebrae in your spine)) in an exacting and precise manner.

Based on a Detailed Analysis

In order to have an adjustment hold in place it must be engineered specifically based on the patient’s unique anatomy and circumstances. This is achieved by completing a very exact analysis based on a detailed physical exam and review of health history, thermographic (Infrared) studies and three-dimensional Cone Beam Cat Scan (CBCT) analysis. This analysis yields a “blueprint” showing exactly how the correction of the vertebrae in the spine is to be given. On follow-up examinations the spine is checked to determine if the adjustment is holding in place, and how the patient is responding or healing.

Quite Different Than Standard Full Spine Chiropractic

  • Long-Lasting Adjustments – Full spine chiropractors adjust your spine on every treatment. The adjustments given with Blair Upper Cervical Care can hold for weeks, months or even years.
  • Less Frequent Visits – We typically only see patients about 10 times in the first 8 weeks, and then gradually progress to just once every 4 to 6 weeks.
  • Painless Treatments – Patients who are afraid of the twisting and cracking that is commonly associated with chiropractic care are relieved to learn that Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care does not use those procedures.
  • Successful Outcomes – Patients say that Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is the best technique out there to resolve health issues and pain.
