The Pillars of Chiropractic
Though Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is considered a modality of the larger overhanging chiropractic umbrella, it differentiates itself dramatically from all other modalities in its extreme scope. More than a physical approach and more than medical insight, CBP offers practitioners a depth of understanding about their patients. And, for patients, it offers unparalleled results that are driven by rooted sciences.
At the heart of CBP is a collection of proficiencies that each contribute to the end goal of truly understanding a person’s spinal alignment and overall spinal health. In understanding how each contributes to the CBP process, we can better understand how and why it’s so successful above all other forms of chiropractic approach:
The study of living organisms takes a front seat in CBP because first and foremost, the human body is a complex living system that requires a top-down understanding. CBP practitioners consider the biological element above all else to understand how a person’s lifestyle, habits, actions, and conditions are affecting their spine. Understanding the person means understanding their condition.
Delving into the next layer of CBP means understanding how the spine interacts with the rest of the body. Being able to connect the dots from A, B, and C conditions to X, Y, and Z segments of the spine means being able to route problems on a full body scale. In this way, CBP takes a methodical approach to affecting change. The unique physiology of a person determines the way adjustments will affect them.
There are forces acting on our bodies each and every day. Instead of taking them for granted or using them as a constant, CBP measures their effect on the spine to expose how patients can better alleviate their effects. Correcting posture against the effects of gravity, utilizing heat to assist in adjustment, and harnessing the biomechanics of ideal spinal posture to assess alignment issues all showcase the importance of physics within CBP’s approach.
In order to understand what types of adjustments need to be made and to what precise degree they’re required means having quantitative data to draw from. CBP utilizes x-rays and other radiological imaging to determine measurements of spinal alignment deviation from the ideal. Once quantitative assessments are made, an appropriate course of action can be mapped for an incremental, measured return to spinal homeostasis.
Proper spinal manipulation means understanding each segment of the spine and each vertebrae contained within it. Moreover, it means knowing the nerve pathways that flow through each segment. A comprehensive understanding of the spine means being able to confidently manipulate it and affect more precise, beneficial levels of change in patients.
Each pillar supporting Chiropractic BioPhysics plays its own integral role in being able to present patients with the most comprehensive, thorough level of chiropractic care possible. CBP is about more than just observing and adjusting – it’s about assuming a scientific approach to truly understand the correct course of rehabilitative action for a person’s unique spine.

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.
