Chiropractic BioPhysics®, or CBP®, is a chiropractic system of care that was first developed in 1980 by Dr. Donald Harrison, DC, MSE, PhD. Until that time, most chiropractors were trying to adjust one vertebra relative to another to create better alignment. The results were sporadically mediocre with regard to realignment as measured on X-ray. Dr. Harrison applied his mechanical engineering training and applied it to posture and the spine. He developed a system of specific adjustments, spinal traction, and corrective exercises, all with the intent and purpose of realigning the ENTIRE SPINE, versus one segment of the spine. This was met with skepticism in the profession due to nearly every named chiropractic “Technique” being focused on single vertebral alignment. But the results were simply amazing. Post treatment Xrays were remarkably better, and CBP® Technique took off.
Since the 1980’s, CBP® has become the most researched, named Technique system in Chiropractic. With over 250 peer reviewed research articles investigating its effectiveness, including 15 randomized clinical trials (RCT’s).
The “Anatomy” of CBP®
1. Specific Spinal Adjustments
The foundation of chiropractic practice is the spinal adjustment. Most spinal adjustments improve range of motion and reduce pain. However, very few spinal adjustment techniques have ever been shown to change spine position. At Modern Chiropractic Center – mc2, we utilize a combination of those methods most effective for range of motion, but we also incorporate unique Mirror-Image® adjustment methods developed specifically and proven to change the alignment of the spine and posture.
2. Postural Corrective Exercises
Chiropractic Biophysics® includes a combination of corrective exercises. These exercises have the goal of stabilizing the spine into the corrected alignment. We start patients with basic Mirror-image® corrective exercises. Next, we advance patients by teaching advanced functional movement procedures to systematically correct alignment asymmetries or major limitations in functional movement patterns. This is called “Mirror-Image in Motion”.
3. Corrective Traction
Utilizing Chiropractic Biophysics technique, Modern Chiropractic Center – mc2 includes extensive corrective traction methods to realign the spine towards normal. Correction of spine alignment is measured on follow-up X-rays to ensure improvement in alignment. Randomized clinical trials have shown spinal correction to provide longer lasting relief as compared to physical therapy alone. At mc2, we have dozens of traction “machines” that can each be tailored for an individual’s specific spinal misalignment.
The results obtained with CBP® Technique are simply amazing! People with years of chronic pain despite seeing other providers, often experience life-changing results. The most recent Randomized Clinical Trials are showing longer lasting results with CBP® corrective care versus standard care as well as improvement in neurological function. The proof isn’t in the pudding, the proof is in the research. Even if you think you tried everything… give CBP® a chance. We promise you will see the difference while at our first visit!
