Blair Chiropractic Clinic celebrates 70 years

Blair Chiropractic Clinic celebrates 70 years

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Blair Chiropractic Clinic celebrated 70 years of business Tuesday with new technology to perform even better in the years to come. 

The Lubbock clinic was started in 1949 by William H. Blair. Dr. Blair was able to develop a more precise way of taking x-rays of the spine. Director of the clinic Dr. Gordon Elder has a personal connection to the clinic. 

When his wife started having health issues nearly four years ago he said this was the only method that worked for her. Dr. Elder said he was impressed with the clinic so much it changed the direction of his career path. 

"I never wanted to be a chiropractor. That was not in my wheelhouse, I did not think about it until my wife had some pretty serious health issues and this was the only thing that helped," he said. "She had lots and lots of doctors looking at her. This was the only thing that helped. It was after that that I thought maybe this would be a good profession for me."

Dr. Elder and his wife moved from California, where he took over the clinic in 2018. He said the Lubbock clinic is one of only two clinics in Texas to own this type of technology.
