How Is the Chiropractic BioPhysics Technique Different?

If you’re one of the 31 million Americans suffering from low back pain, you know that finding relief can be a frustrating and complex journey. There are so many options that many sufferers don’t know where to turn. More and more consumers, though, are turning to chiropractors. 

In fact, each year 35 million Americans seek treatment from chiropractors for whiplash, herniated discs, stiff necks, headaches, fibromyalgia, and other conditions. Although all doctors of chiropractic medicine are trained in the principles of corrective chiropractic care, an elite group of practitioners is becoming certified in an advanced chiropractic treatment called Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP). 

Certification in CBP, also known as the Ideal Spine Protocol, requires about 90 hours of postgraduate training and successfully passing a test to confirm the practitioner’s competence in mastering the CBP techniques. 

In this blog, John Hunt, DC, who is a certified CBP practitioner at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora, explains how the CBP system is different from traditional chiropractic techniques. 

Evidenced-based treatment

Chiropractic BioPhysics is based on the premise that when a patient is injured, their optimal alignment and posture are thrown off balance. In order to relieve pain, the spine needs to be restored to its ideal position.

Using a blend of math, geometry, biology, physiology, physics, and anatomy, a practitioner compares the injured patient’s posture and alignment with what their ideal posture and alignment should be.

By using X-rays and postural assessments, the practitioner can identify the exact misalignments and use this data to track the patient’s progress until a healthy spinal alignment is restored using chiropractic techniques and exercises.

This treatment process contrasts with the traditional chiropractor who can detect what area needs to be treated, but without the specific nature of the misalignment that is revealed through X-rays and postural analysis. 

Traction and mirror imaging

Another way the CBP technique is different from traditional chiropractic techniques is in its use of traction and mirror imaging. With CBP traction, the practitioner employs bending and pulling to restore the spine to its ideal position. 

With mirror imaging, the practitioner places the patient in their opposite posture in order to restore balance and alignment. And like all CBP techniques, these methods are tracked and confirmed through X-rays.
