What is CBP®?
CBP®, Chiropractic BioPhysics, is currently the most researched form of chiropractic in the history of chiropractic! The research team that studies CBP® Chiropractic consists of mathematicians, engineers, MDs, DCs, and even a rocket scientist!
This team has thoroughly studied all aspects of your CBP® chiropractic experience, reliability, validity and consistency of spinal correction giving you the best in chiropractic care! CBP® Philosophy is published in prestigious journals such as “Spine” and “The Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development” to name just a few of the almost 150 publications.
What is a CBP® Adjustment?
A CBP® adjustment differs from manipulation in that the goal is not just decreased pain and improved range of motion but also a change toward normal structure. CBP® certification ensures that the doctors performing the Adjustment are trained in the proper way to change the spine toward normal.
How can children benefit from CBP®?
Children are our most prized possession in the world. Their health is often more important to us than our own. Protecting them from dangers in the unpredictable world is a high priority. We feel the same way. We are on the lookout to safeguard one of the most vital, necessary parts of a child’s body, the nervous system. How do we do that? By delicately taking care of the protector of the nervous system…the spine.
When a dentist finds cavities in your children’s teeth how does he/she know? Mostly by looking and probing with the instruments right? Or they may take x-rays to verify that there are no cavities hiding. But what about their spine? Fortunately, CBP® doctors are specially trained to detect spinal abnormalities even in the youngest spines.
Our doctors can see abnormal posture, feel muscle spasm, and if needed, verify the presence of spinal abnormalities with x-rays. But what’s even better is, unlike other forms of Chiropractic, CBP® doctors like the ones in this office are trained to correct these spinal abnormalities before they become permanent. Permanent spinal abnormalities lead to pain and dysfunction later in life.
Why is traction a necessary part of care?
Traction is the only known conservative method used to restore normal curves to the spine. Traction is simply a sustained force applied to the spine in a specific direction for the purpose of restoring normal spine position. These traction forces are necessary to reduce abnormal spinal curvatures, correct abnormal postures, and will provide increased stability to damaged spines. The proper application of spinal traction in our office will ensure safety and effectiveness of care.
Your spine exhibits many different properties. It will move quickly is a traction force is applied, but quickly resume the original abnormal shape similar to a rubber band. If a force is applied to the spine for a certain amount of time, a change will take place but if removed too soon, the spine will again resume its abnormal shape-similar to silly putty. However, if a traction force is applied for more than 10-15 minutes, permanent change is made. That change will become more and more apparent improving posture, structure, and function. Types of traction are specific with your diagnosis. Be patient. It can take time for the abnormal spine to become normal. Traction may cause some soreness but should not cause pain. Keep communication lines open with your CBP® Practitioner if you feel possible modifications concerning weight or time may be needed. Your consistency and effort will pay off in the end with a healthy spine.
What is spinal manipulation?
Spinal manipulation is the process of taking the body through full range of motion and the result is decreased pain and increased range of motion. Spinal manipulation is a safe and effective tool that has been used for hundreds of years to decrease pain and improve range of motion.
Does an adjustment hurt?
No. In fact, when you allow the vertebrae in your spine to return to their proper position, you will notice much less stress and tension. Thus, CBP® adjustments actually leave you feeling great. We are confident that your visits to our office, including spinal manipulation and CBP® adjustments, will quickly become one of the highlights of your week.
How can rehabilitative care reduce stress?
Stress if very common in our society. From upset stomachs to back pain and muscle stiffness, the function to the nervous system is crucial. The CBP® approach to stress is to help normalize the structure and function of your nervous system by finding abnormal shapes in the spine and nervous system. This can help restore better structure and function, making a profound difference in your response to stress.
What is a Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists are university trained and are experts in injury diagnosis, injury treatment, exercise prescription, injury prevention, rehabilitation and many other areas of sport and health and fitness.
What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports, and list of medication. You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
What should I wear to my appointment?
If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you will be, so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, physiotherapists can assess and treat without referral by a doctor. However, most health insurers require a doctors referral before they authorize cover of fees, some only require a phone call.
