Pinpointing Posture Issues: CBP’s Comprehensive Look
When it comes to chiropractic care, adjusting blindly is never a proper course of treatment. Simply going through the motions in providing rudimentary traction or common corrections does nothing for a person’s individual spinal health and, could in fact be doing more harm than good if assessments aren’t made before adjustments. This “one size fits all” approach to chiropractic procedure is one of the chief reasons public perception of corrective spinal care is muddled.
Administering proper corrective care must be rooted in a quantifiable approach, as illustrated by Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP). The comprehensive assessments that define CBP allow chiropractors to deliver a personalized level of corrective care that’s mapped out incrementally over time, to ensure lasting results.
Because radiological imaging is taken at the outset of corrective care, data is made real to the professionals who will be administering that care. And, in utilizing the thorough evaluative techniques that CBP is rooted in, chiropractors can treat spines, not just symptoms.
Phase 1: Relief care
People seeking chiropractic care are usually doing so because they are experiencing pain, discomfort, or a detriment to their quality of life. They’re looking for results that alleviate the symptoms that are ailing them, and this is where many chiropractors can fall into the habit of administering generic corrections. They deliver adjustments that work to address the immediate spinal issues, not the long term ones, because it’s what their patients see as successful. Immediate relief means results in the eyes of many patients.
CBP also seeks to deliver immediate relief, but where it differs from other approaches is that “patch care” is only a first step on the journey to sustainable wellness. It’s through the first stage that symptom reduction takes place, in order to focus on increased range of motion and patient education, eventually culminating in sustainable spinal health.
Phase 2: Determining rehabilitative care
Looking back to the radiological imaging taken at the outset of care, a chiropractor will have a clear overview of a person’s unique spine. In mapping the alignment of vertebrae, the curvature of the spine, and the health of disks, a chiropractor is able to quantify misalignment. From there, it’s a matter of reverse engineering treatment based on the ideal, to meet the demands of the reality.
Rehabilitative care through the CBP approach is comprehensive. It doesn’t just identify displacement in the cervical spine and demand corrections for that specific area, for example. Instead, it realizes cervical misalignment, traces its impact to the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine, and shows the proper incremental path to realigning the cervical spine, while also correcting other areas of concern or doing so without disrupting healthy segments. The assessment is all-encompassing.
When all areas of concern within a spine are identified, treatment plans can be mapped. Most CBP corrective care plans span a total of six months, with regular adjustments being administered in a way that offers incremental betterment. Constant imaging and reevaluation are also involved to ensure the path to wellness is the proper one.
Phase 3: Sustained health
No care plan is complete without a solution to sustaining the results achieved through care. CBP takes sustainability seriously and, more so, puts an emphasis on patient education. Teaching people better postural habits, making lifestyle changes, stretching and exercising key muscles, and coming back for routine adjustments is critical. CBP takes all facets of sustainability into account to provide a comprehensive plan for the ever-after, again completely tailored to the individual patient.

Chiropractic BioPhysics, or CBP, is one of the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented corrective care techniques. CBP-trained chiropractors aim to realign the spine back to health, eliminating nerve interference and addressing the source of pain, fatigue, and disease. As with all chiropractic care, CBP is gentle, painless, and non-invasive.
