Listen to a patient's story - overcoming Eustachian tubenaturally with Blair upper cervical care

Dr. Hall is seriously a miracle worker. I was skeptical beforegoing to see him because I did not think he would be able to helpme, I couldn’t see how. I suffered from severe vertigo attacks andhad been dealing with sporadic attacks for 6 years. Then, for acouple of months before going to see Dr. Hall I was having attacksevery day, several times a day. They were completely debilitating.I couldn’t drive, I couldn’t take care of my baby, it was awful. Ialso had hearing loss coupled with vertigo. It’s a condition calledMénière’s disease.

Anyway, I was wearing hearing aids and still could not hearanything! Now, since seeing Dr. Hall, my vertigo has essentiallycompletely subsided (I’ll still have a “blip” here or there butthey aren’t even debilitating anymore and only when I’m out ofalignment), and my hearing is SO much better. I don’t have to wearhearing aids anymore and I can understand people so well.

What Exactly Does a Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractor do?

Blair Upper Cervical doctors are specially trained to locatespinal misalignments in the upper cervical spine and correct them.Spinal misalignments are located by running a battery ofneurological tests that locate the spinal segments that have beeninjured and misaligned by a prior neck injury.

 Once located, precision imaging in the form of digitalx-ray or cone-beam computed tomography (Cbct) is used to preciselydetermine which joint has misaligned and the angulation of themisaligned joint. Each person’s anatomy is different and thereforeimaging is used to uncover the blueprint to be used to correct eachpatient’s individual misalignment pattern.

Once this information is gleaned, a gentle, light correction ismade without twisting, popping, or pulling. The patient is thenmonitored overtime to ensure that the correction is holding. If thetesting indicates the need for another correction, then it isperformed.

However, the goal of Blair Upper Cervical Care is for thepatient to stay in “adjustment”. It isn’t the correction thatproduces healing. It is the removal of nerve irritation and theadjustment “holding” in its normal position that allows the body tofunction better and proceed through a healing process. 

This is how Blair Chiropractic care can often help remove theunderlying cause of many who suffer from Eustachian tubedysfunction, tinnitus, Vertigo, Meniere’s disease, neck pain,migraine headaches, and other chronic health problems by supportingthe body in healing itself.
