Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this case study is to evaluate and discuss the use of Blair Upper Cervical technique in a 55-year-old female with cervicalgia and spinal stenosis.

Clinical Features: The patient is a 55-year-old female who presented with a chief complaint of neck pain and spinal stenosis, exacerbated by prolonged sitting and standing. The patient also presented with reduced cervical range-of-motion (ROM), spasms and tenderness of the left cervical paraspinal muscles, and postural abnormalities.

Intervention and Outcomes: A patient health history and chiropractic examination was performed. Blair Upper Cervical technique was utilized to identify the area of involvement. This case study shows improvements in the patient’s condition after one month of care. During that time period, the patient received chiropractic adjustments in accordance with Blair Upper Cervical technique protocol. By the end of care, the patient’s Verbal Pain Scale score went from a 5/10 pain level to 0/10 pain level. Other outcome assessments used in this case study include Tytron thermography scanning.

Conclusions: The findings presented in this case study suggest that chiropractic adjustments using Blair Upper Cervical technique may provide some benefit in the management of neck pain and spinal stenosis.
