How do We Help Chronic Pain?
Health First Chiropractic utilizes a very specific type of care, known as Blair Upper Cervical. Our expericen has shown that most people suffering from chronic pain also have had a history of head injury. The Blair work consists of a detailed analysis of an upper neck misalignment and its impact on the health of the nervous system. A precise, gentle correction is made to correct this misalignment and ultimately stabilize the spine.
This is accomplished without the use of drugs or surgery and does not involve any twisting or popping/cracking of the neck.
