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.
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.
