For the first half of his career as a chiropractor, Dr. Dennis Campbell practiced the popular diversified technique with much success. After attending a seminar with the late Dr. Sigafoose in 2000, he returned home curious about Upper Cervical and began inquiring with his personal chiropractor.

The Blair technique also gives quick returns. Typical Diversified chiropractic care delivers 3 treatments per week for up to 4 weeks before many patients see any lasting improvement in pain or significant change in other health conditions.
After just one Blair treatment, pressure is immediately removed from the brain stem and your body begins to respond. Many people report feeling the next day like they worked out! As your muscles respond, quite a lot can change in the body.
Once this training takes place, less frequent checks are recommended – as maintenance. And occasional adjustments may be needed in response to physical or other stress which is the cause of misalignment in the first place.
Once patients understand the facts above and ask themselves the questions that follow, it becomes easier for them to see how they can experience “referred pain” from a misalignment in their spine.
This type of pain – or other symptoms of dysfunction in the body – occurs when pressure on the top of the spinal cord affects the rest of the body.
