A CBP® adjustment is the beginning process of rehabilitating your spine towards normal structure. CBP® certification ensures that the doctors performing the adjustment are trained in the proper way to change the spine.
Just as there are normal values in all bodily functions such as temperature, blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels, there are normal curves to the spine. The spine has one ideal position, which minimizes stress on the nervous system, skeletal system and muscular system. This normal position is important in reducing abnormal symptoms, such as pain, as well as improving overall bodily function.
When looking at the spine in the frontal view, the spine should be straight. From the side, the ear should be directly over the shoulder, the shoulder directly over the hip, and the hip directly over the ankle. If these normal structures and postures are not present, stress and strain are placed upon the spine. These stresses and strains lead to breakdown in the tissues, causing dysfunction and eventually pain which interfers with the normal processes of the nervous system. The restoration of normal structure, as facilitated by your doctor, will lead to normalized function in the body.
Spinal care now can prevent a number of spine problems later in life. Through a customized treatment plan and lifestyle changes, you can have the freedom from pain you deserve, now and in the future.
Posture is a window to the shape of the spinal column. Abnormal posture can be related to a number of health problems and increases stress and pressure on the muscles, ligaments and bones of the spinal column. These abnormal stresses (caused by poor posture) lead to a breakdown of body tissues and eventually cause pain.
Posture is one of the most simple, but also most difficult aspects of our everyday lives. Whether at work or at play, keeping good posture is of utmost importance. The nervous system controls all functions in the body, and posture controls how well the nervous system functions. Losing posture affects not just how you look but how you feel and how well all processes in the body work. Being aware of your posture while sitting, standing, walking, or lying down can make a significant difference in the success of your treatment plan.
