INTRODUCTION AND HISTORY Life Colleges SpeciFc Upper Cervical Technique has been taught since the schools beginning in 1974. Based upon the work of B. J. Palmer, D.C., Ph.C., in his books, The Subluxation SpeciFc - The Adjustment SpeciFc, Volume 18 (1934), Chiropractic Clinical Controlled Research, Volume 25 (1951) and History In The Making Volume 35 (1957). This technique has a heritage steeped in chiropractic history and the spirit of the Palmers. Beginning in the late 1920s, Dr. B.J. Palmer suggested the possible importance of the upper cervical area, anatomically and philosophically. He found there to be only one cause for all dis-eases and he spoke out against the medical practice of classifying patients according to which disease they had.

The name was changed to The Atlas SpeciFc - The Adjustment SpeciFc. inally, and possibly due to Dr. Wensings inuence, the name was changed to The Subluxation SpeciFc - The Adjustment SpeciFc. Dr. Palmer tested several different types of adjusting tables during those years, arriving at different conclusions at different times. His favorite tables were the knee posture table and the side posture table with adjustable headpiece. The segmental contact point on the Atlas for the knee posture table and side posture table is the transverse process. Dr. J. Clay Thompson invented the drop headpiece for the side posture toggle table in 1952. Dr. BJ Palmer quickly accepted the table for use in his clinics and Palmers classroom. Up to that time, the side posture table had no drop, but it was adjustable for different heights....
