What is Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP)?

An explanation and how you can benefit from the technique

Chiropractic BioPhysics®  or CBP® is the most specific and scientifically researched Chiropractic technique. The focus of CBP is to correct posture, restore and preserve normal spinal alignment and alleviate pain.

Chiropractic BioPhysics® combines advanced spinal rehabilitation techniques and takes a modern approach to Chiropractic care. The premise behind Chiropractic Biophysics® is to use biomechanics, physiology and anatomy to restore normal function to the spine. This approach allows you to remain mobile, have a higher quality of life and helps you avoid a life of drugs and surgery.

CBP® is the most researched and modern Chiropractic technique in the world. CBP® has more than 240 publications that are found in the world’s leading medical journals, such as ‘Spine’, ‘Clinical Biomechanics’, and ‘The Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development’. The uniqueness CBP® offers even compared to other Chiropractic Techniques is found in the research. CBP® publications in scientific peer-reviewed journals included 13 randomized controlled trials and 7 non-randomized controlled trials. CBP® is advancing the field of Chiropractic, Spinal Biomechanics and non-surgical spine correction and rehabilitation.

CBP® uses a protocol called EAT, which includes mirror image Exercise, Adjustment and Traction.

Exercise: The patient is given specific exercises to help correct the patient’s posture. These exercises are given following a detailed exam and posture evaluation. Posture is a blueprint to the spine and a critical component to long term pain reduction.

Adjustment: The adjustment is the most important part of the CBP® technique. In fact it is the most important thing we do at Creekside Chiropractic. The adjustment will reduce nerve irritation, giving you a better quality of life. The adjustments also improve posture. Once we reduce nerve irritation and improve posture, the Adjustments will allow you to get back to doing those things you love to do.

Traction: Chiropractic BioPhysics® uses a specific style of traction that is unique and different compared to other types of traction. This concept is called mirror image traction. The goal of traction is to improve and restore normal biomechanics to the spine, which should be straight from the front and have three distinct curves from the side.

What to Expect from a CBP Chiropractor?

We provide a thorough examination and custom plan

We recognize that pain is a motivator and typically the thing that makes you call our office. However, we are going to look at your case with a long term approach to care. When you come into the office we will do a detailed consultation, exam and x-ray. We will give you recommendations based on your goals and our findings.

The doctor will carefully assess your case and create a specific plan for your needs that will include, adjustments, exercise, posture correction and spinal remodeling. Our ultimate goal is to get you back to doing the things you love most while also allowing you to avoid unnecessary visits, drugs and surgery.

When we do your detailed exam we will be looking for four many things that ultimately trigger your pain.

  1. How is your spine positioned?
  2. How does your spine move?
  3. Do you have Degenerative Changes?
  4. What does your posture look like?
