Posture and alignment
Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP): The most research-based method of spinal correction in chiropractic
There is no replacement for a skilled set of hands being able to detect and adjust joints that are “stuck” or not moving well. Such joints are commonly associated with alignment problems that chiropractors call ‘subluxations’. CBP offers an additional “missing piece” to this health care puzzle through a combination of precise postural corrective exercises, postural corrective adjustments, and corrective traction (spinal remodeling).
CBP practitioners examine spines, measure how far they’ve deviated from normal, decide if this displacement might be involved with pain or dysfunction, and correct the spine towards normal if necessary.
In my practice, when a chronic pain patient begins care, x-rays are usually taken to assess the state of their spine and to rule out certain spinal conditions. But I also need to see if the alignment and shape of their spine is “within normal limits” compared to an ideal model. If x-ray measurements reveal an area of the spine is displaced outside the normal limits, the patient may be a candidate for CBP ‘Spinal Structural Rehabilitation’. I will then design a specific treatment plan, and at various intervals of care take comparative x-rays to gauge progress and measure the objective changes.
