What is CBP?
Producing exceptional breakthrough results for patients worldwide, Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP® is the protocol of choice for elite chiropractors who look to spinal rehabilitation and postural correction as means to address not just pain, but disease and organ dysfunction.
The most researched, advanced, results-oriented and effective chiropractic technique, and stands at the leading edge of chiropractic advancements.
Ideal postural alignment is depicted in both the frontal and side views. In each view, the center of mass of the skull, thorax, and pelvis are in a vertical line with respect to gravity.
In the frontal view, the spinal column is vertically aligned-a straight column-with respect to gravity. In the side view, the spine has three primary curvatures which will be described below:
IDEAL POSTURAL ALIGNMENT
1. Neck Curve – Cervical Lordosis
2. Ribcage Curve – Thoracic Kyphosis
3. Low back Curve – Lumbar Lordosis
Ideal posture can be precisely described as vertical alignment of the centers of mass of the head, ribcage, and pelvis with respect to gravity. In other words, none of the rotations and translations can be present. Using this definition, abnormal postural rotations and translations can be determined.
Mirror Image Adjustments, assists the Chiropractor in the rehabilitation of the patients posture. In theory, these adjustments re-balance the bodies sense of proper balance or alignment by way of triggering improved muscle and nerve reflexes. Thus, postural adjustments as performed with drop table, hand-held instrument, or even mirror image manipulation procedures, are performed for resetting the nervous system regulation of postural muscle balance.
Mirror image® exercises are performed to stretch shortened muscles and to strengthen those muscles that have weakened in areas where postural muscles have adapted to asymmetric abnormal postures. Although strength and conditioning exercise has not proven to correct posture, 46 postural exercises performed in the mirror image have shown initial promise in the reduction of posture and spinal displacements.
There are MANY types of spinal extension traction methods used in CBP® Technique; some are more aggressive and technical than others. Whereas some forms of spinal extension traction are available for patients to use at home. Each patient’s spine is unique and thus, a variety of traction devices are used depending upon the exact condition of the patient.
Improving patient outcomes and quality of care.
CBP® Technique uses postural and radiographic analysis procedures that have been shown to be reliable and valid. Significantly, CBP® Technique has multiple types of peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals as evidence for its patient treatment methods.
