The video below is detailed explanation of what x-rays a Blair Upper Cervical Doctor takes , how they are viewed , and how they are used in correcting the patient. Blair work is interested in how the upper neck vertebrae fit at the joint level. 

Since injury to the neck can cause ligament damage, soft tissue damage, and muscle patterning, it is imperative to know how the vertebrae has misaligned so you know how to fix it. Misalignment in the upper cervical spine must happen at the joints. 

The joints are where the bones meet. The joints are mirror images of each other and if they have misaligned then viewing each individual joint you will be able to see the misalignment direction and joint angle.

What Is The Goal Of Blair Upper Cervical Care?

Upper Cervical Doctors are trained to find upper neck spinal misalignments that interfere with normal neurological function. Objective tests are run to determine whether or not you have a spinal misalignment. If found a precise set of x-rays are taken to determine exactly what direction and how far you have misaligned. 

Once ascertained the data is used in a precise spinal correction to the offending vertebrae. Once the irritation is removed from the brain-stem the body goes through a healing process.

“Upper Cervical practitioners hypothesize based on their success in addressing many health conditions that the misalignment of the atlas is blocking communication to various parts of the body and thereby affecting the body’s own ability to correct the problem. “

Over time an upper cervical doctor will monitor your case with objective tests to determine if and when you need a correction. The goal of upper cervical care is to “hold” the correction for as long as possible. It is while the vertebrae stay” clear” of the spinal cord that healing accrues.
