Stress is very common in the modern age. People are working multiple jobs and for much longer hours at that. Not only do they have to take on their professional life and career, but also family life and other financial stresses. The nervous system is an important consideration when treating upset stomachs, back pain, and muscle stiffness. It needs to function well and not have undue stress placed on it. The Chiropractic BioPhysics approach to stress allows for helping the healthy structure and functioning of your nervous system. In addition, it also normalizes it. It does this by finding abnormal shapes in the spine and nervous system, so that it can be effectively treated. As a result, you can help to restore better structure and function and create a better response to stress. We take a look at Chiropractic BioPhysics and how iTrac therapy can help you to live your best life.
Spinal manipulation and Chiropractic BioPhysics involve the process of taking the body through a full range of motion. The goal is to decrease the amount of pain in your body and to increase its range of motion. It is a safe and effective tool that has been used for hundreds of years – effectively decreasing the pain and improving the range of motion. A CBP adjustment not only decreases pain and improves the range of motion, but it also creates a change in the structure, returning it to normal. CBP certification ensures that the doctors performing the adjustments are trained in the proper way to adjust the spine to a normal level.
CBP doctors are trained to detect spinal abnormalities in all spines. CBP doctors can see abnormal posture, feel muscle spasms and verify spinal abnormalities with x-rays. These spinal abnormalities can then, as a result of the doctor’s observation and diagnosis, be corrected. This prevents the spinal abnormalities from leading to pain and dysfunction later in life. These doctors, because of their knowledge and skills, are the best way to ensure the treatment and prevention last.
The CBP technique comes after years of clinical research and publications. The CBP research team consists of mathematicians, engineers, doctors, doctors of chiropractics, and other professionals from a multiple range of specialized fields. These specialized teams make sure that they thoroughly investigate all aspects of the CBP technique and spinal rehabilitation methods. The CBP chiropractors use tested and proven techniques for remodeling your spine from top to bottom.
Chiropractors will start with an examination of your posture, spinal alignment, and function. Many tests involving x-rays are used as a way to pinpoint the root cause of a spinal misalignment. Once the source is identified, a carefully planned series of adjustments and exercises are put into place and a spinal remodeling program is used to put the patient on a journey to better health.
Exercises are done under the guidance of a good chiropractor. He or she will provide you with a weighted device to wear on your head or spine for about 30 minutes each day. Another form of exercise used, is a traction unit that you can hang from a door, which can be used daily. It allows your own body weight to place traction on your cervical spine and makes a tremendous difference in alignment. In addition to doing exercises at home, you may also need to address ergonomics both at work and at home. It may even be recommended that you purchase chiropractic BioPhysics equipment that will help you in the long-term.
These Chiropractic BioPhysics exercises are designed to improve your posture. They will assist in the goal of maintaining maximum spinal correction and improved function through improved structure. These exercises are more effective in comparison to other exercises because they are created by means of carefully analyzing your posture, your spine x-rays and your postural habits. The mirror image of your abnormal posture and x-rays are part of these exercises with each exercise that is specifically designed to strengthen muscles that have become weak due to the poor posture. There are over 128,000 possible abnormal postures. These exercises are designated for and specific to you, with the goal of attaining that one normal posture.
Some of the prescribed exercises may take a while to get used to. It is important to remember that the prescribed exercises are the exact opposite of your abnormal posture. It is well noted that muscles are not used to working in that position and it may take time before you are used to the exercises. In other words, in this case patience is a virtue. Abnormal posture often takes time to develop and, therefore, also takes even more time to correct. Some soreness may occur, which is a good sign and indicates that you are performing the exercises properly. While some soreness is expected, pain is not! Always remember that water consumption can help to ease soreness. It is also important to be properly hydrated during exercises. So, stock up on the water.
The use of Chiropractic BioPhysics to correct scoliosis is a popular method in the modern age. Moreover, unlike most treatment plans that fall just short of surgery, this particular approach has been met with extreme success. The course of treatment gives scoliosis sufferers a real solution to correcting their spinal deformities -without the need for invasive surgery. It is a viable and highly effective solution to correct spinal deformities with great results; this solution truly gives scoliosis sufferers hope for living a normal life.
Chiropractic BioPhysics makes use of intelligent traction management that has the following benefits:
- The CBP assessment and analysis use the most advanced techniques to identify specific root causes of health issues.
- The CBP technique is a structural rehabilitation program proven to correct the spine and posture and improve many health ailments.
- The CBP method addresses all of the affected tissues including the spine, muscles, ligaments, and nerves by incorporating a variety of unique exercises, adjustments, traction methods, and more.
- CBP uses valid and reliable outcome measures, so as to monitor your improvement towards the ultimate goal of a corrected posture and improved health.
- The CBP technique works for the long-term. It is not a quick-fix solution, but rather, a much more permanent correction to your health issues.
- The CBP technique is specific enough to correct your problems, yet flexible enough to change things up throughout the process to better accommodate a change in your health status.
When delicate spinal nerves release pressure, the body begins to function the way it’s supposed to. This can aid in the relief of:
- Acid Reflux (Gastroesophageal reflux/GERD)
- Ear infections
- High blood pressure
- Headaches and migraines
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Weak immune system
- Sexual dysfunction
There is a lot of chiropractic BioPhysics research that has been done to prove that it is an effective treatment and alternative to invasive surgery. In six clinical control trials detailing the outcomes of chronic pain, patients undergoing CBP treatment achieved a 75 to 80% improvement in their chronic pain and a 50% correction of their initial abnormal spine alignment position. A typical chronic pain patient may need 2 blocks of 36 visits of intensive structural rehabilitative care (3 or 4 visits per week) to achieve as near normal spinal alignment as possible. It is indeed the most effective and fastest way to achieve good spinal health.
What is iTrac®
iTrac® stands for the iTrac Spine Remodeling System. It involves a specialized designed device to restore the normal positioning of the patient’s neck and head. When one is always in a forward position or has a spine misalignment, the result is strain or stress on the vertebral discs, back muscles, neck muscles, and neck ligaments. This strain can in time cause chronic pain, neck stiffness, temporomandibular disorder (TMJ), and lots of headaches. Bad neck and head posture result in tissues in the neck and upper shoulders becoming vulnerable and more susceptible to suffering injuries that may increase the neck pain, headaches, and TMJ symptoms.
