Correct more than your posture when you come to LifeQuest Physical Medicine and Rehab. Our head chiropractor is qualified to perform Chiropractic BioPhysics in Chandler, Arizona. Take advantage of our expertise in this technique if you have problems with your posture or experience symptoms directly related to irregularities in the curvature of your spine.
What is Chiropractic BioPhysics?
Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP is an advanced technique that uses traction, or the use of weights and controlled force to stretch the ligaments between the vertebrae, as well as the surrounding muscles, to slowly correct the shape of the spine. Only chiropractors with years of continuing education and published research studies may become a licensed CBP.
The certification process is challenging for a good reason: CBP goes beyond correcting posture. It addresses problems in the spine itself, specifically the irregularities in its curvature.
The spine is vital to our mobility and overall health. It houses the spinal cord, supports the body’s weight, and allows us to find our balance whether we’re sitting, standing, walking, or running. It can withstand an enormous amount of stress, but that doesn’t mean it is immune.
The spine can give when subjected to stress for long periods or hit with a sudden force. In some cases, the problem is congenital.
Regardless of the cause of the irregularity in the shape of your spine, our licensed Chiropractic BioPhysics practitioner in Chandler can help. We can perform spinal rehabilitation and curvature correction to address diseases, chronic pain, and even organ dysfunction.
What’s the Difference Between CBP and Conventional Chiropractic Medicine?
Although Chiropractic BioPhysics and chiropractic therapy have the same roots, there are several differences in how they are performed.
CBP is focused and definitive in its diagnosis and treatment. Its practitioners combine the traction technique with other chiropractic therapies like spinal adjustments, muscle stretching, and mobility exercises. They have a defined goal, which is to make the spine slowly take the right shape.
In comparison, other chiropractors begin manipulating the spine after conducting a non-definitive assessment via palpation. They are reactive; they pursue therapy if the patient shows progress and modify their technique if the results are different from their expectations.
General chiropractic care is very much collaborative. Certain cases, however (e.g., if there’s a hairline fracture along with the subluxation of the spine), need a more definitive approach. CBP is the better option in these situations.
