CBP is the most researched technique in the chiropractic profession and has shown potential to improve chronic pain conditions in several patient populations and selected case studies.
CBP Technique focuses on optimal posture and spinal alignment as the primary goals of chiropractic care while, documenting improvements in pain and functional based outcomes. The uniqueness of CBP treatment is in structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture.
In general the goals of CBP Care are:
Normal Spinal Alignment
Improved range of motion and quality of movement
improved muscle strength
Ideal Postural Alignment
CBP protocols require that the doctor must measure the displacements on spinal radiographs (segmental Subluxation). Both lateral-side view and anterior to posterior (AP) or frontal view CBP x-ray line drawing procedures have been studied and found to be reliable. Furthermore, CBP utilizes standardized x-ray positioning procedures that have been studied and found to be reliable.
In reality, the only way to see what an individuals spine alignment looks likes, is to take an X-ray.
Post x-rays are taken of the patient to compare their new structural alignment to their initial visit. Over time as spinal alignment corrects, patient's frequency will decrease until the ideal spinal alignment is reached. At that time the doctor and patient can discuss continued wellness care to maintain their correction.
