Blair Upper Cervical Specific Technique

Dr. Paul Pierce and Dr. Celia Ringstad use the Blair Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic technique, which is a precise system of analyzing and adjusting the upper cervical vertebrae (the first two bones in your neck) of the spinal column. These vertebrae can misalign in such a way that they interfere with the brain stem and spinal cord as they exit through the floor of the skull and into the nerve pathways.

What Is a Subluxation?

When vertebrae misalign to the extent that they interfere with nerve transmission, it is termed a subluxation. A subluxation may exist for months or years before producing any outward signs, such as pain or symptoms, resulting in the body breaking down to a state of dis-ease and dysfunction.

Meet Our Gentle Chiropractors

Everything that's happened in your life, including being born, has contributed to what's going on in your body right now. That's why our doctors will not only ask what prompted you to seek our care, they will also give you time to share your entire health history. This allows them to understand the totality of your condition.

Roseville chiropractors Dr. Celia and Dr. Pierce specialize in Blair Upper Cervical work, a highly precise and gentle form of adjustment to the upper neck that does not include any twisting, popping or cracking. As the name implies, Blair Upper Cervical targets the upper vertebrae in the neck, removing interferences from the nervous system to restore normal communication between the brain and body. When this communication flows freely, the body's health and balance is restored and you can achieve optimal functionality.

Adjusting With Accuracy & Precision

The Blair technique uses neurological tests, heat-sensitive instrumentation,
and other means for detecting the presence of a vertebral subluxation. The adjustment is given only when nerve pressure is present.
The Blair technique also uses highly precise Cone Beam Computed Tomography Upper Cervical Scans to determine in what manner the bone (s) (vertebrae) has misaligned, so that a precise and specific adjustment is tailor-made and provided to the patient.

The purpose of the Blair Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic technique is not to diagnose or treat diseases or conditions, but to analyze and correct vertebral subluxations in an accurate, precise, and specific way to allow the body’s natural intelligence to repair and maintain health from within. At PRC Pierce Ringstad Chiropractic we believe that when you get to the cause, all will be well!
