Dr. Wm.G. Blair Severe Asthma Sufferer. Was told he would die at age 23 by the medical community. Dr. Blair States it was “Chiropractic alone” that allowed him to have an extended life. Dr. Blair Died at the age of 64.
Chiropractic Saved his life Very strong Convictions for Chiropractic. He knew what it could do and what it did for him. How does a body heal? - Optimum function of continuous, uninterrupted nerve flow between the brain and body.
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced Chiropractors should Locate, Analyze and Correct Vertebral Subluxation To Detect Subluxation… - NeuroCalograph… 2-3 graphs. - Need pattern on sequential visits - Need 1-2 primary Breaks for pattern. - Used a prone leg check
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced List misalignments on x-ray to categorize them. (1 o, 2 o, 3 o ) 1 o would be the segment putting the most distortion on the cord, found off the APOM through neural canal measurement. Only one segment was adjusted at a time.
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced “What ever you are going to do, Pattern it”, Dr. Blair on Chiropractic techniques. Once the first adjustment is given you loose the information for that specific subluxation. You can not rely on symptoms.
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced Pattern established with 3 graphs taken on at least 2 separate days no more than 7 days apart. Coined the Tern “Slippage”. -1 of 2 things will happen 1- Your body will regain control 2- You will subluxate If Dr. Adjusts while patient is in slippage they can cause a bigger problem than the original Subluxation.
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced What happened when he didn’t adjust? 2 concerns: 1.Your Health 2.My reputation
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced Patient Management: Patient checked 2 times per week until they held their adjustment for 6 weeks. Then 1/wk until they held their adjustment for 6 weeks. Then 1x/2wks. Until they held their adjustment for 8 weeks. If they didn’t comply, they weren’t allowed to be seen. (checked 90 patients per day)
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced If patients missed an appointment: 1.They were called to reschedule 2.They were called to reschedule 3.They were written a letter and released from care. “ Never let it be economical to miss an appointment ” He had sick people to take care of and didn’t have time to mess around. Remember, he was living on borrowed time.
How Dr. Wm. G. Blair Practiced If you keep seeing pattern, you are missing something. If legs are short but there is no pattern, the patient is not checkable.
