What is taught at the Full Blair Seminar Series?

The Primary Seminar consists of Dr. Blair’s innovative concepts on malformation, atlas motion, taking and reading articular x-rays, and same side C-1 Blair spinal adjustments.

The Intermediate Seminar will teach the C-2 and below subluxation detection and correction. Taking and reading stereoscopic/3-dimensional x-rays allow you to actually see the joint displacement.

The Advanced Seminar will review previous seminar material and show you how to detect how the segment actually displaces off both joints thus creating double misalignments in the cervical spine. Also covered is Dr. Blair’s efficacious side-opposite adjustments for those patients that have anatomy that makes same side adjusting impossible.

We have the new dates at Palmer Davenport for the Winter series this year. Get signed up and we’ll see you there on December 13-15,2013 and January 24-26, 2014.

  • Dr. Blair found through observation that vertebra are not formed symmetrically.
  • Dr. Blair discovered that anterior or posterior movement of atlas was more clinically significant than laterality; therefore torque plays a major role in correcting C-1 subluxations.
  • Dr. Blair developed an ingenious way of imaging the atlanto-occipital articulations known as oblique condyle protractoviews.
  • Dr. Blair surmised that, “if subluxations do occur, they occur at the articulations.”
  • By x-raying the joint surfaces you can see that joints on the right side of the body may not be formed exactly like joints on the left side of the spine.
  • Give yourself these tools that complete an Upper Cervical education. Attend a Blair Seminar Series.

Atlas Adjustments Alleviate Meniere’s Disease

by Dr. Neil Bauman

"In the year 1999, upper cervical chiropractor Dr. Michael Burcon (affectionately called “Dr. Mike” by his patients) made an intriguing finding. (Note: upper cervical chiropractors specialize in adjusting the top two vertebrae in your neck.) Three of his patients, who just happened to have Meniere’s disease, quickly recovered from their vertigo after receiving upper-cervical-specific chiropractic treatment."
