At Precision Chiropractic we specialize in a particular type of upper cervical treatment called Blair Upper Cervical Care. A Blair Upper Cervical Care adjustment, or "correction," is extremely gentle, very precise and completely painless. This is a low impact correction, with absolutely no cracking, twisting or popping of the neck.

  • Painless Treatments – Patients who are afraid of the twisting and cracking that is commonly associated with chiropractic care are relieved to learn that Blair Upper Cervical does not use those techniques.

  • Successful Methodology – Patients say that Blair Upper Cervical Care is one of the best ways to clear …
