The Blair Technique
The Blair chiropractic technique is a specific system of analyzing and adjusting the upper four cervical vertebrae of the spinal column. These vertebrae misalign in such a way as to interfere with the brain stem and spinal cord as they exit through the floor of the skull and into the neural canal. Special attention is given to the first two cervical vertebrae, the atlas and axis, as they are the most freely moveable vertebrae in the spinal column and the ones most commonly misaligned.
The purpose of the Blair Chiropractic technique is not to diagnose or treat diseases or conditions, but to analyze and correct vertebral subluxations in an accurate, precise and specific manner to allow the body's intelligence, to mend, repair and maintain health from within.
The Blair technique utilizes chiropractic neurological tests, heat sensitive instrumentation and other means for detecting when the vertebral subluxation is present or absent. The Blair adjustment is administered only when nerve pressure is present. The Blair technique utilizes precise x-rays of the upper cervical area to determine which way the vertebrae has misaligned so that a precise and specific adjustment may be tailored and administered to that individual.
