Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care - Los Angeles

What to Expect

Welcome to our chiropractic office near you! We take pride in delivering scientific precise care with the goal to remove interference from your body’s natural innate healing capacity. We recognize that symptoms, syndromes, and most diseases are the end result of a body that is not functioning properly. While most forms of conventional treatment focus on treating the effects, Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is designed to increase the healing potential of the body so it can heal and repair to the best of its ability. We are here as a partner in your healing process and look forward to helping you achieve your health goals.

The basic premise of upper cervical chiropractic is that your body is a self-healing self-regulating system as long as the neurological system is FREE.  Upper cervical recognizes that true health is an inside out process.  Therefore to get well or stay well it is a matter of an internal process.  This basic premise contradicts the mainstream health care system which is an outside in paradigm. For whatever ails you there is a pill from the OUTSIDE in that can bring back balance. Medications can be lifesaving, but diseases and symptoms are not the Results of drug deficiencies they are the effect of the abnormal function. The ENTIRE FOCUS of upper cervical care is to remove interferences to the nervous system so the inborn intelligence in the body can restore balance and health to the best of its ability.

Your First Visit

At your initial consultation, the Doctor will take a history of your current health status, go over past traumas that may be associated with your health problems, and answer any questions you may have. Next, you will be brought to an examination room where a battery of tests will be performed to determine if you have a spinal misalignment that is causing your body to function improperly. Finally, we will provide you with a detailed explanation of what Blair Upper Cervical Care is and the process that you will go through if you decide to become a patient in our office.

Objective Testing

Various tests will be used to determine presence or absence of nervous system interference. The objective of Upper Cervical Care is to only make spinal corrections when necessary.

Leg Length Balance Test

The leg balance test is an objective measure of functional leg length. This test observes whether your legs are even, or whether one is relatively shorter than the other. If your leg balance test reveals one leg shorter than the other, it indicates that the spinal muscle tone is imbalanced.  Imbalanced muscles are an indicator that the nerve system is irritated and causing one side of your body to be tighter than the other.  When an upper cervical misalignment is present the leg balance test is imbalanced.  Balanced legs indicate there is NO need for an upper cervical  correction.
