Client question #51

Client question #51 (I'm not sure it was 51 but fifty-one sounds better than fifty.)

I was asked another great question today.  A practice member asked me what I know about the Blair technique.  Admittedly, I don't know much about it other than it focuses on the upper cervical spine.  The reason she asked about the technique is that her husband's family sings the praises of the technique and I assume want her to see a Blair practitioner.  I told my practice member that there are over a hundred different named chiropractic techniques.  Most of the time practitioners of a particular technique are very proud of their technique which trickles down to their practice members.  To me chiropractic has less to do with the technique and has more to do with the technician - specificlly the philosophy of the chiropractor. 

I completely agree with information on the Blair Chiropractic Society's website.  They say, "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, (see chiropractic philosophy) to mend, repair and maintain health from within."  I do the same thing in my office.  However, not only do I check out the upper cervical area of the spine, I check out the rest of it too.

The bottom line is people have benefited from ALL of the chiropractic techniques.  My advice to you all: Find a chiropractor you feel comfortable with, one who's convenient with respect to location and accessibility of visits, and charges a fee you feel comfortable paying (in addition to the above stated information from the Blair website).

Oh, by the way my technique is Advanced Muscle Palpation and if you want more information on it go to:
