Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique
The purpose of the Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic technique is not to diagnose or treat diseases or conditions, but to analyze and correct vertebral subluxations in an accurate, precise and specific manner to allow the body’s intelligence (see chiropractic philosophy), to mend, repair and maintain health from within.
THE LEAST AMOUNT OF INTERVENTION
The Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique is a specific system of analyzing and adjusting the upper cervical vertebrae of the spinal column. These vertebrae can misalign in such a way as to interfere with the brainstem and spinal cord as they exit through the floor of the skull into the neural canal. Special attention is given to the first two cervical vertebrae, the atlas and axis, as they are the most freely moveable vertebrae in the spinal column and the ones most commonly misaligned.

A PROFOUND EFFECT ON HUMAN FRAME AND PHYSIOLOGY
The nervous system controls and regulates all parts and functions in the body. When there is nerve interference, also known as a subluxation, your body loses the ability to properly self-regulate and heal itself. The result of the subluxation can be pain and illness.
THE LEAST AMOUNT OF INTERVENTION
Blair Upper Cervical care is a highly specialized system of locating and correcting this nerve interference in the spine, also known as a subluxation, where we can specifically correct one area of the spine to allow the rest of the spine to become healthy and stable again, significantly reducing the amount of adjusting and intervention.
THE BLAIR SOCIETY COMMITMENT
The Blair Chiropractic society is committed to the promotion, advancement and quality control of the Blair Chiropractic technique amongst it practitioners, instructors, students and community.

Chiropractor Of The Year – Dr. Gordon Elder
Dr. Elder’s first chiropractic experience was at the age of 10 at the hands of Weldon Muncy, DC, Dr. Blair’s co-developer of the Blair Chiropractic Technique™. It wasn’t until many years later that he decided to pursue a career as a Blair Chiropractor after he saw the changes the Blair technique made in his wife, who went from being a semi-invalid to a group exercise instructor and personal trainer.
Dr. Elder learned what the Atlas was by attending Blair seminars even before he got to chiropractic college. The doctors he considers his mentors are: Weldon Muncy, D.C. - Dr. Blair's co-developer and instructional successor, Fred Harkins, D.C. - who learned the technique from Dr. Blair personally, David Topping, D.C. - Dr. Muncy’s chosen instructional successor, and E.A. Addington D.C. - Dr. Blair’s last student and clinical successor
Dr. Elder graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles in December 1999 and has been a full member of the Blair Society ever since. He has been an Advanced Instructor since 2013 and has since helped the Society develop a structured technique certification program. In 2017 Dr. Elder closed his Southern California practice and moved his family to Lubbock, Texas to take over the original Blair Chiropractic Clinic established by Dr. Blair in 1949. He is currently enrolled in the Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP) program.
Dr. Elder served as the President of the Blair Society in 2020 and currently serves as the Society’s Vice President. He has one wife, 4 adult children, and a yappy dog.
Teaching and research of the Blair Technique has been continued since Dr. Blair’s passing by the William G. Blair Chiropractic Society, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) qualified Texas non-profit corporation which credentials instructors, sponsors research, and holds annual educational conferences. The Blair curriculum is currently divided into four courses of two days each. Research projects to date have focused primarily on inter-observer reliability studies of measurements and perceptual judgments made on Blair Cervical Series spinographs.
