Have you ever heard of Chiropractic BioPhysics®? Chiropractic BioPhysics® is a groundbreaking form of chiropractic care that focuses on treating the root cause of the pain and discomfort a patient is experiencing. In addition to utilizing traditional chiropractic adjustments (in this case, mirror-image adjustments), Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) utilizes custom spinal traction setups based on physics to gently move bones and joints back into their ideal alignment. This occurs through a meticulous process that requires expertise, attention to detail, and an intuitive and intellectual understanding of the body’s structure and function. Chiropractic BioPhysics®-based treatment is different than standard care—here’s how.
Traditional chiropractic care
Traditional chiropractic care presents a significant amount of benefits on its own. Standard manual manipulation can detoxify the bones and joints, help to create limberness and flexibility in the spinal structure, move the skeletal system toward proper alignment, and boost circulation in the body.
Traditional chiropractic care can also help to regulate the nervous system. The expertly applied pressure in the appropriate direction to the bones and joints can help to release inflammation in nearby nerves, decreasing nerve interference and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the nervous system.
Nerve interference occurs when misalignment in the bones and joints prevents nerve impulses from traveling unhindered through the body. Traditional chiropractic care can help to assuage nerve interference, but without significant changes to the spinal structure (especially in cases where the spine is far from proper alignment), standard chiropractic care may not be sufficient to correct the misalignment causing the nerve interference.
Chiropractic & The Nervous System
In particular, the nervous system is regularly treated by chiropractic care, which helps to reduce inflammation, pressure on the nerves, and improve nerve function. When the nervous system is functioning properly, it helps to carry sensory feedback from your environment to the central nervous system, which is made up of the spine and brain. When signals are delivered through the nervous system, they are intended to regulate various processes. The nervous system is responsible for an enormous amount of functions, including all resting activities you don’t usually notice, like blinking, breathing, heart rate and blood pressure, immunity, hormone production, and more.
When the nervous system is imbalanced, the tasks that it regulates can suffer the consequences. Things that we don’t normally think about, but that have a huge effect on our well-being and state of mind, can begin to disrupt our overall sense of well-being. Nervous system disruptions are one of the main issues that can cause people to seek medical and holistic wellness care, and examples of conditions that can be caused by nervous system imbalances include back and neck pain, migraines, digestive distress, sciatica, fatigue, and more.
When there is an imbalance in the physical body, the surrounding nerves of the area shoot pain signals to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), letting the body know that something is wrong. Chiropractic care can help to correct the issue at the root by resolving any misalignments, stimulating the nervous system, and treating any injuries that may be present.
How Chiropractic BioPhysics® works
The first distinguishing pillar that makes Chiropractic BioPhysics® different from every other form of treatment is the highly advanced diagnostic method that CBP-certified chiropractors utilize. CBP-certified chiropractors are required to assess the condition of the spinal structure in order to determine exactly where the patient will benefit from treatment.
The process of examining the spine is carefully conducted by each CBP-certified chiropractor using a combination of x-rays, digital imaging technology, and visual assessment. Using each of these tools, a CBP-certified chiropractor is able to determine exactly where in the spine an imbalance exists.
Now with the knowledge of exactly where each individual is experiencing an imbalance, a CBP-certified chiropractor is equipped to develop an individualized treatment plan for the patient. This is different than any other kind of chiropractic care, as it turns symptoms and conditions like back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and migraines into something that is visible and treatable.
With Chiropractic BioPhysics®, individuality is key. The x-rays and digital analyses that are conducted help CBP-certified chiropractors understand exactly what each individual needs, and develop a unique and personalized plan specific to each and every patient.
Treatment is the most important part of the Chiropractic BioPhysics® process. Each patient receives a personalized treatment plan that is aligned with their needs. The treatment plans vary in duration, type of treatment, frequency, and supplemental assignments.
Depending on the wellness goals or conditions that any given patient is experiencing, they will be guided as to how often to come in for treatment. The CBP-certified chiropractor will employ the appropriate types of treatment for each patient, which may include mirror-image adjustments, customized spinal traction, and more.
Once treatment has been completed, maintenance is an important part of retaining the benefits of Chiropractic BioPhysics®. Just like wearing a retainer after having braces on your teeth, regular follow-up visits help to maintain the changes that have occurred in the spinal structure after treatment.
The differences between Chiropractic BioPhysics® and standard chiropractic care
Chiropractic BioPhysics® is unmatched in its ability to determine the root cause of a condition and then treat it effectively. While standard chiropractic care can aid in reducing inflammation, helping joints and bones remain mobile, and increasing circulation, CBP is ideal for producing long-term results that create measurable changes in the structure and function of the skeletal system.
If you’re suffering from neck pain, back pain, migraines, digestive dysfunction, or you’ve experienced an injury or accident, Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help support your healing.
