Chiropractic BioPhysics® CBP®

Chiropractic BioPhysics®, or CBP®, is an “Approach” that is taught to all healthcare providers. This post-graduate system of analysis and treatment is a chiropractic system of care that was originally developed over 40 years ago by Dr. Donald Harrison, DC, MSE, Ph.D. Until that time, most chiropractors were following the adjusting methods of their predecessors which relied on trying to adjust one vertebra relative to another to create better alignment. The results were mediocre at best with regard to realignment as measured on X-ray. Symptomatic relief with the traditional “segmental” approach to chiropractic care was mostly temporary as well.

Fun Fact

Visiting a chiropractor regularly reduces your pharmaceutical costs by 85%.

Dr. Harrison had a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering and a PhD in Applied Mathematics. He used this knowledge and applied it to the science of posture and the spine corrective care. He invented a system of specific “Mirror-Image” adjustments, spinal traction, and corrective exercises, that all work to realign the entire spine and overall posture. Because most “Techniques” within chiropractic in the 1980’s were based on the premise that you only have to adjust one bone out of place, this was met with skepticism. But the results doctors started getting could not be ignored. CBP® Technique took off with the system eventually being taught in many chiropractic colleges.

Since the 1980’s, CBP® has become the most researched, named Technique system in Chiropractic. With approximately 300 peer reviewed research articles investigating its effectiveness, including 15 randomized clinical trials (RCT’s), CBP® has truly become the gold standard of corrective chiropractic care.

How Does CBP® Get Amazing Spinal Correction? The Answer is as Simple as 1, 2, 3:

    Specific Spinal AdjustmentsMost types of spinal adjustments are good at improving range of motion and reducing pain. However, very few chiropractic adjustment techniques have ever been shown to significantly improve spine position, until CBP® Technique was developed. At Advanced Spine & Posture, we utilize a combination of those chiropractic adjusting methods effective for improving range of motion and obtaining quick, but temporary relief, but we also incorporate unique Mirror-Image® adjustment methods developed specifically and proven to change the alignment of the spine and posture. This helps keep the spine aligned in a healthy position and prevents the return of pain and stiffness.

    Corrective ExercisesChiropractic Biophysics® has developed a combination of corrective exercises that help stabilize the spine in correct alignment. These exercises have the goal of strengthening the muscular system to hold it in the correct alignment. Don't worry, there are no “jumping jacks'' or running on treadmills… We start patients with basic Mirror-image® exercises to start the corrective process. Next, we develop specific and sometimes challenging exercises and activities that further correct and stabilize correct alignment.

    Corrective TractionOur CBP®-Certified Doctors of Chiropractic at Advanced Spine & Posture have been extensively trained to provide safe and effective traction methods to realign the spine towards normal. Traction stretches the stiff spine into the corrected position, allowing the ligaments that hold the spine in place to allow for realignment. Correction of spine alignment is measured on follow-up X-rays to both ensure and measure improvement. At our Advanced Spine & Posture Centers, we have various traction “machines” that can each be customized for an individual’s specific spinal misalignment. One-size-fits-all doesn't cut it when trying to fix the spine.

The results obtained with CBP® Technique are simply amazing! Even people who have seen “everyone else” for their spinal problem often experience unimaginable results. The most recent research studies on corrective chiropractic care are showing longer lasting pain relief with CBP® technique versus standard care as well as improvement in neurological function. Even if you think you tried everything… give CBP® a chance.
