Dr. Anthony Montoya is a licensed medical professional who practices the life-changing Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique. His patients praise him for helping to improve or eliminate their painful and progressive ailments by applying the Blair technique and other chiropractic treatment protocols. At his Phoenix, chiropractic office, Dr. Montoya’s compassionate care helps patients live healthier, happier lives.
Dr. Montoya has been a practicing Upper Cervical Chiropractor since 2001 when he obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles. Before chiropractic school, Dr. Montoya attended and received a B.S. degree from Arizona State University. After graduating from chiropractic college, Dr. Montoya initially practiced the traditional “twist and crack” techniques that people typically associate with chiropractic care. However, it wasn’t until he incorporated the Blair technique into his treatment protocols that he was able to see lasting, life-changing results for his patients.
Dr. Montoya has been a believer in the healing power of chiropractic from a young age. He saw his mother healed of the chronic, debilitating migraines she experienced for years after a head-on car accident. As a teenager, he also experienced relief from his own chronic lower back pain after only a few chiropractic visits. It was these interactions that sparked his interest in chiropractic as a career. He observed how much his chiropractor enjoyed his profession and never considered it a chore. Seeing the joy his chiropractor gained from helping patients recover their health and enjoyment of life was a turning point in young Anthony’s life—he knew right then and there that he wanted to dedicate his life to the chiropractic profession.
A pivotal point in Dr. Montoya’s chiropractic career happened when he saw his colleague, chiropractic college classmate, and friend achieve a near-miraculous recovery through Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic treatment. That friend, Dr. Drew Hall, who is now president of the Blair society, had an accident where his head was slammed to the ground. Shortly afterward, he manifested headaches, neck pain, and numbness in his arms and hands. Dr. Drew also had other neurological problems, which brought him to the point where he could barely function.
For the next two years, Drew visited a variety of conventional medical doctors without gaining ground on his condition. Things finally began to turn around when he got upper cervical chiropractic care. Upper cervical care deals with the upper neck area specifically. After his first visit and upper cervical adjustment, Dr. Drew reportedly felt 80% better. Furthermore, Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic care returned him to full, pain-free function in only three weeks.
Dr. Montoya himself suffered from asthma since childhood. However, the breath-limiting condition disappeared once Dr. Montoya started receiving Blair chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Montoya claims that Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic treatment keeps him from getting sick as often as other people. Plus, when he does come down with something, the symptoms are less severe and don’t last as long. Dr. Montoya acknowledges the unrivaled power of the Blair technique.
With the Blair technique, Dr. Montoya can address issues such as:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Cluster headaches
- Blurred vision and tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Meniere’s disease
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Lost spinal flexibility
- Tight, tense, and painful neck and back muscles
- Balance problems
- Stress and pressure on the nervous system at the level of the upper cervical spine
- And many other chronic health conditions
When patient’s ailments have not responded to conventional medical treatments, Dr. Montoya’s upper cervical Phoenix chiropractic care can often help them recover and return to their active lifestyles. A dedicated and caring medical professional, Dr. Montoya’s passion is to ease suffering and raise awareness of the Blair technique.
The Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique
The Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique is a non-surgical and drug-free treatment. It focuses mainly on the upper neck region, the source of a multitude of problems. The upper cervical bones (vertebrae) house and protect the brain stem and spinal cord, essential elements of the central nervous system.
When the upper spinal vertebrae, particularly the specialized uppermost ones—the atlas and the axis—are out of the correct alignment, the vital nerve transmission from the brain stem and spinal cord can be impaired. Surprisingly, even a mild bump to the head can cause the atlas and axis to become misaligned. When upper cervical misalignment issues irritate nerves originating in the brain stem and spinal cord, it interferes with nervous system signaling, resulting in pain and functional limitations. Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic techniques address the upper spinal bones, correctly aligning them, so they no longer cause nerve pressure and irritation. Thus, pain is relieved, and function is restored.
Furthermore, once these upper cervical vertebrae are restored to their correct alignment, the rest of the spinal bones should fall into proper alignment, as well. With optimal nerve function restored, the body’s natural healing processes can activate fully, leading to whole-body healing. Notably, an upper cervical spinal adjustment is a quick, gentle procedure. There is no cracking, popping, twisting, or snapping. No aggressive manual force is used. The correction is so light and quick that many patients wonder if anything has been done!
Patients who get upper cervical adjustments often hold the correction for a longer length of time than with other techniques. Many other treatments offer only temporary relief. With upper cervical care, patients often feel relief and achieve healing in only a few sessions. However, patients often choose to return for routine maintenance with upper cervical spinal adjustment to keep their healing processes and body functioning vitally and optimally.
Dr. Montoya sincerely hopes that people who are suffering will seek out upper cervical Phoenix chiropractic care. Once patients go down the path of using addictive medications and invasive surgeries, they may find that those interventions only address symptoms, not the root cause of the problem. Upper cervical chiropractic care can correct the underlying issues in the upper cervical spine that interfere with whole-body healing.
Pain, stiffness, and lost flexibility can significantly impose upon your active lifestyle and quality of life. Dr. Montoya understands that your work and leisure activities are much too important to be limited by less than optimal health. Upper cervical Phoenix chiropractic care is designed to harness and increase your body’s healing potential so that it can repair, heal, and maintain healthy functioning for years to come.
