Imagine using a broken bone place with no x-ray, or major operation done without some type of previous imaging (CT, MRI, etc.). What if the physician only palpated (touched) that the region and said “Alright, I understand what to do.” Sounds absurd, right? How would a physician possibly have the appropriate details regarding your distinctive situation without visiting of this difficulty they had been trying to fix?
In Blair Upper Care Chiropractic Society, every individual who walks through our door is exceptional with various experiences which have impacted their spinal health. Posture, harms, and genetics affect the joints and alignment of your spinal column. The largest factor is that nobody has a totally symmetrical backbone. Actually, spinal asymmetry is ordinary.
Based on Dr. William Blair, the inventor of this Blair Upper Cervical Procedure, asymmetry at the backbone is “the principle rather than the exception” so palpation alone can’t be accurate. Visual examination and palpation of the backbone by a chiropractic physician are useful diagnostic instruments, but they won’t ever show enough details regarding the state of the genuine joints and fractures of the spine that innovative imaging will reveal.
Imaging with 3D CBCT.
Premium quality upper cervical chiropractic care has depended on x-ray technologies since the early 1900’s. Our Blair Upper Care Chiropractic Society office has employed high quality x-rays for 25 decades. We had been the first in the region to provide digital x-rays.
But as technology has improved, we’re eager to be the initial Blair Upper Care Chiropractic Society to have a 3D cone beam CT scan (CBCT). CBCT is a technology which was initially developed by dental surgeons to better picture the jaw arrangement for implants. This technology significantly improved the success rate of the procedure over the preceding use of electronic x-rays (2-dimensional technologies).
We’re enthusiastic about this new technology since it allows our physicians to examine images that give far greater detail, resolution, and 3-D clarity which just is not possible with 2-D electronic x-rays. While electronic x-ray remains an remarkable instrument, CBCT is the imaging technologies of the future. As physicians, we could honestly say this the best improvement in our profession from the 25 years we’ve been in training.
Spinal subluxation or misalignments are observed in the joints of the backbone. CBCT imaging permits your upper cervical chiropractor to observe that the spinal misalignment, just quantify this, then accurately fix the issue with greater achievement rates than with obsolete diagnostic technologies. Most patients improve with upper cervical care since imaging isn’t only detected but rigorously researched.
In Blair Upper Care Chiropractic Society we consider our patients wellbeing severely. The majority of the individuals we see are chronic and have observed many unique doctors through time. They’re desperate to get a wellness solution. While we don’t have all of the answers we look at heath from a detailed perspective working with the most up to date diagnostic instruments.
Benefits of the Cone Beam CT Scan comprise:
● Our Cone Beam CT Scan generates less radiation in comparison to some routine X-ray research or CAT Scan normally found at hospitals and radiology facilities. Sometimes it may be 10x less.
● The CBCT enables our physicians to visualize internal system that can’t be identified externally or from clinical evaluation.
● Our CT Scan provides 360 degree 3D pictures vs. traditional x-rays which just provide 2D.
● Unlike routine x-rays, our CT Scan may differentiate between several types of cells such as nerves, bone and soft tissues.
● CT Scans are non invasive.
● Our tech has considerably faster scan times: 10-40 seconds verses several minutes for conventional CT scans.
● Our fee could be 75 percent less costly than a CT Scan got in a hospital or radiology centre.
Infrared Thermography. These scans ascertain whether a patient has nerve damage inside the backbone and, what’s more, if the nerve damage hasn’t yet been fixed.
Precise Low-Force Corrections. Upper cervical corrections are incredibly precise and gentle. 3D Imaging is used to offer the precise place and level of misalignment.
“Holding Is Recovery.” Precise imaging contributes to powerful and long-term corrections that provide the body the time it needs to cure. The objective of upper cervical care would be to get the spinal correction to “grip”–to remain in alignment for as long as you can. The longer the grip, the more comprehensive the recovery.
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.
