What Makes Chiropractic Biophysics® A Different Kind of Chiropractic Care
When somebody says “chiropractor,” everyone’s minds go to the same place, in large part thanks to visual mediums like Instagram – somewhere, a chiropractor is pushing, pulling, or twisting an area of someone’s body.
This usually results in some sort of audible sound, and a sigh of relief from the person experiencing the adjustment. Chiropractors are most famous for traditional adjustments, but is there more to what they can do?
Enter Chiropractic BioPhysics®, a type of chiropractic intervention that utilizes a combination of physics and anatomy to change the structure of the body over time.
What is chiropractic care?
First things first – what is standard, traditional chiropractic care? Chiropractic care is a form of therapeutic intervention that works directly on the musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractic care is very hands-on, as it typically involves manual manipulation and touch to diagnose imbalances and mechanical disorders within the body.
Chiropractors are primarily concerned with the structure of the skeletal system, the alignment of joints, and any strain or inhibiting effect that misalignment may be having on overall body function, particularly nerves.
Chiropractic treatment is often sought to restore mobility, improve posture, address misalignment and subluxation, and increase overall energy, wellness, and vitality.
Common Chiropractic Treatments
Standard chiropractic care may include adjustments, spinal manipulation and decompression, traction techniques, heat and ice therapy, ultrasound and electrical stimulation, manual tissue manipulation, and the use of tools, props, and take-home items to help supplement and support in-office treatment.
Each of these techniques is designed to address a specific purpose, and most of them work together synergistically to create a holistic balancing effect.
People seek chiropractic care after they have experienced an accident or injury if they feel their posture could be improved, and when they simply want to boost their overall health and vitality.
Chiropractic care commonly treats back pain and weakness, neck pain, headaches and migraines, scoliosis, and poor posture.
Chiropractic care can help restore optimal posture, decrease or eliminate pain, and encourage the body’s inherent repair systems.
Chiropractic treatment can aid individuals who have decided against surgery, who are dealing with chronic conditions, or who are struggling to recover from an accident or injury.
How is Chiropractic BioPhysics® different?
In addition to all of the benefits of classic chiropractic care, Chiropractic BioPhysics® adds another – Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) utilizes the physics of the human body to create long-lasting change in the physical structure.
Using a combination of unique spinal traction techniques and tools designed to supplement in-office care, Chiropractic BioPhysics® helps to resolve subluxation and misalignment long term.
With a series of diagnostic tools including x-rays and advanced digital imaging technology, treatment from CBP practitioners allows chiropractors to complete a comprehensive postural analysis identifying the areas that require correction.
Once the assessment and analysis are complete, Chiropractic BioPhysics®-based treatment begins.
The primary intention of CBP, and what differentiates it from most other forms of chiropractic care, is its emphasis on long-term results. CBP employs spinal traction in conjunction with advanced diagnostic techniques to ensure that the specific areas of the spine and body which are causing imbalance are targeted and treated.
An “optimal spine” model is utilized as a basis for ideal posture (more information here). Following the analysis, a unique treatment plan is created.
This plan often includes spinal traction, which is a procedure that involves mechanically shifting bones and joints with the help of a table and specialized equipment.
This is an area where the “physics” component of Chiropractic BioPhysics® really shines – the tools and equipment attached to the table are then utilized to move and decompress the spine at the appropriately calculated degree (based on your unique assessment) to correct and rebalance the spinal curvature.
With the appropriate amount of sessions (determined by your individual analysis) and a uniquely prescribed duration of time, the spine gradually moves back toward optimal alignment. This can be enhanced by regular chiropractic adjustments and other supplementary tools, like Denneroll devices, a brace, or specific exercises which address your specific case.
Why choose CBP?
Chiropractic BioPhysics® is the ideal choice for individuals who are looking for long-term results. If you have experienced scoliosis or chronic back and neck pain and want to address the root of the problem, then an expert CBP chiropractor is the right fit for you.
Individuals who have been told that surgery is their only option – whether to correct scoliosis or address slipped discs, disc herniation, bulging discs, or chronic pain originating from arthritis – will find that Chiropractic BioPhysics® offers a solution to produce noticeable and time-tested relief.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® is ideal for anyone who is interested in correcting unbalanced spinal curvature, releasing pressure from compressed nerves and muscles, resolving subluxation in joints, addressing back and neck pain, restoring ideal posture, and boosting overall vitality.
CBP serves as a fantastic treatment intervention for most people. Irrespective of whether you are a professional athlete, are moderately active, or live a primarily sedentary lifestyle, CBP can enhance performance and increase energy.
The Benefits of Realigning the Spine
Because spinal misalignment and the subluxation of joints are so common, many people erroneously assume that their current baseline of health cannot be improved. Fortunately, chiropractic care helps to dispel this myth every day, allowing individuals to improve their baseline health margin substantially.
This can be perceived as more energy, flexibility, mobility, and clarity, and decreased pain, stiffness, and misalignment. The benefits of realigning the spine are not purely aesthetic, although the improvement of posture can boost both confidence and personality perception.
Realigning the spine has also been shown to connect to longevity and lifespan. This means that those who seek out chiropractic care to correct their spinal curvature – or simply ensure that their posture remains upright and optimally aligned – are actually adding years to their lives.
Upright posture correlates with improved organ and immune function and increased cognitive performance. Because of the connection between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and spinal joints, chiropractic care can increase the flow of CSF to the brain.
This helps to facilitate the delivery of nutrients and oxygen, as well as improve detoxification in and around the brain. If you’re ready to help improve every area of your health and support your longevity and overall vitality, book your appointment today.
