"Correction Is What We Do"

Advanced Chiropractic Service
We use CBP(Chiropractic Biophysics), a technique used for postural correction. When we say postural correction, we mean actual structural changes. We have the tools and the knowledge to actually correct abnormal posture. We take x-rays of our patients with abnormal posture, treat them using our traction equipment, then take follow-up x-rays to see the improvements. (See here.) We are the only chiropractor in Northern AZ to offer postural correction and one of only six in the entire state to be certified in this technique.
What is CBP® (Chiropractic BioPhysics®)?
Chiropractic BioPhysics®, or CBP®, is, in short, a higher level of chiropractic. It is a more knowledgeable, comprehensive, systematic, scientific approach to chiropractic, that provides predictable results for patients. CBP® combines standard chiropractic joint adjustments with mirror image® (opposite position) postural adjustments, mirror image® spinal/postural exercise, and mirror-image® traction to provide more permanent relief and improved health for patients through spinal and postural correction.
Why Chiropractic Biophysic?
CBP uses mirror image exercise and adjusting because research shows the effect of firing the proprioreceptors (receptors that control balance) and mechanoreceptors (receptors that control mechanism) has in helping the brain to realize the changes that need to be made. Traction is used because Biomechanical studies have established that long-term biomechanical adaptation requires a constant force over a period of time. Traction delivers a constant force over a period of time. An important and unique aspect of the CBP® technique is the utilization of traction. In line with this thinking, long-term corrections of abnormal spinal postural distortions would require a force applied over a period of time, and this can be achieved with traction. Clinical investigations of this premise have proven it to be correct; our traction protocols have been proven to result in long-term correction of spinal postural distortions.
