It is estimated that chronic pain affects 100 million Americans. (1)  Put another way 1 in 3 Americans lives in chronic daily pain.  What causes chronic pain? We all know that taking pain killers such as advil , tylenol, and aspirin can help.  Unfortunately we have thousands of Americans popping pain killers like candy.  I am darn sure that pain is not CAUSED by a medication deficiency.  What is Pain caused by?  Later in this blog we will discuss a little know procedure that has been helping chronic pain sufferers break free of their daily intake of pain killers. First listen to one patients story how she recovered from chronic pain and other symptoms through upper cervical care!
What are the major syndromes that cause pain? When asked about four common types of pain, respondents of a National Institute of Health Statistics survey indicated that low back pain was the most common (27%), followed by severe headache or migraine pain (15%), neck pain (15%) and facial ache or pain (4%). (2.)  There are a plethora of underlying conditions that can lead to pain in most of these categories.  By far and away the greatest percentage of people who suffer with chronic pain do so because of tight muscles. Chronically tight muscles cause pain. It doesn’t matter whether the muscles are in your low back, neck, leg, or face.  If they are chronically tight they cause pain. Muscle tone regulation is controlled in the central nervous system , more specifically the brain-stem.  Chronic muscle tightness is the result of abnormal nerve impulse which can result from a host of mechanisms.



Upper Cervical Care and Chronic Pain

In our offices in Los Angeles we have seen over 8000 patients throughout the years. Recently we did a survey of over 100 patients. The number one thing most commonly reported was pain relief.   How does correcting spinal misalignments in the upper cervical spine help chronic pain? When someone suffers an injury to the neck it can result in joint damage. Joint damage can be a huge factor in the underlying cause of chronic pain syndromes (3). No matter how much advil you take you will never fix the tissue damage that underlies these type of chronic pain syndromes.
The Blair Upper Cervical Procedure’s goal is to find joints in the neck that are misaligned causing abnormal interference to the central nervous system.  These joint misalignments are determined through precise x-rays.   Once the joint misalignment is visualized it can then be corrected using the precise information gleaned from the x-ray. These spinal corrections are made with no popping, pulling or twisting of the neck. Once corrected the patient is monitored over time to ensure the correction is “holding”. If the joint “locks” out of position on a subsequent visit another correction is made. The goal of the upper cervical corrective care is stabilization.  It is the “holding” of the adjustment that allows for healing and restoration of proper neurological function.
