What is an “adjustment?”

An adjustment is the physical correction of a misaligned joint. When a vertebra is misaligned, it may impinge (not ‘pinch’) and exert pressure on a nerve or the spinal cord.

If the vertebra is jammed (similar to a cogwheel getting stuck), the resulting long-term pressure may cause inflammation and abnormal nerve function. The purpose of the adjustment is to un-jam the vertebra and restore its normal movement. When the vertebra is un-jammed, it can release the pressure and restores the normal clarity of nerve impulses between the brain and the body.

The Blair Technique

The Blair technique is unique among Upper Cervical and other full-spine chiropractic methods in that it is a custom-tailored adjustment. Every person’s anatomy is different … even on the left and right sides of their bodies. For this reason, in the Blair technique, we must determine what your own bone structure is using a specialised series of x-rays because if we don’t know what your normal is, there’s no way we can know what your “abnormal” is.”

With this information, we are able to perform a highly specific “torqued” adjustment with an exceptionally light amount of force. A drop mechanism in the headpiece allows for a small vibration, which we believe allows the atlas, axis, and other cervical vertebra to “reseat” themselves without having to manipulate the bones into place. The correction is performed by hand, and there is no cracking and zero rotation of the head.

Dr. Jeffrey Hannah holds Advanced Certification in the Blair Technique and was awarded the international Blair Society Chiropractor of the Year award for 2017. For more information on the Blair method, please visit www.blairchiropractic.com and www.upcspine.com.

Other Methods

Dr. Hannah has also studied a number of additional Upper Cervical Specific approaches including certification in the Atlas Orthogonal (AO) technique (which he practiced for 5 years), Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3), Toggle Recoil, Knee-Chest Specific.

Ultimately, Dr. Hannah is able to draw on his experience using a variety of upper cervical approaches to find out which combination may be able to help you best.
