What Makes us Unique

There are approximately only 2-3 practices out of over 2000 chiropractors in the UK that are certified and hold a full complement of machines to fully utilise the amazing results obtainable using this technique.

CBP® is the most published named chiropractic technique within the Index Medicus in the history of Chiropractic.

CBP® has more published papers in peer-reviewed indexed journals, medical and orthopedic scientific journals than all other techniques combined.

Clinical Biomechanics of Posture, a.k.a. CBP® (http://www.idealspine.com).
Entails using exercise, adjusting and postural traction to correct spine and posture deviations back towards normal alignment. By correcting misalignments, more permanent corrections of your ailments can be achieved. In fact, there have been several clinical trials as well as case reports recently published documenting dramatic improvements in a variety of diseases and conditions by remolding the spine/posture back towards the normal. 1-13

CBP® is a method of spinal analysis and treatment developed by Donald D. Harrison, M.S., D.C., M.S.E., Ph.D., and Glenn Harrison, B.S., D.C. It encompasses postural and radiographic analysis and correlates the sciences of applied mathematics, physics, and biophysics to the practice and theory of chiropractic.

The CBP® technique goes beyond the resolution of symptoms to achieve a structurally normal spine. Published in the world’s top scientific and medical journals such as Spine, Journal of Spinal Disorders, Clinical Biomechanics, Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The goal of CBP® technique is to restore normal human posture and spinal position. It is well known to health care practitioners that abnormal spinal posture and position has negative affects on the nervous system. It is established that the nervous system is the primary controlling factor in immunity and is responsible for all bodily functions. As a result, uncorrected asymmetries in posture adversely impact the individual’s health and well-being.

“Posture effects & moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headaches, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture.
Posture, normal physiology, and function are interrelated. Abnormal posture is evident in patients with chronic pain-related conditions including backache, headache, and stress-related illness.” (American Journal of Pain Management 1994; 4: 36-39)

The objective of CBP® technique is to correct these asymmetries to the greatest degree, minimizing spinal degeneration and improve neurological dysfunction and systemic health.

“Because mechanical loading of the neuro-musculo-skeletal tissues plays a vital role in influencing proper growth and repair, chiropractic rehabilitative care should focus on the normalization/minimization of aberrant stresses and strains acting on spinal tissues.

Manipulation alone cannot restore body postures or improve an altered sagittal spinal curve. Therefore, postural chiropractic adjustments, active exercises and stretches, resting spinal blocking procedures, extension traction and ergonomic education are deemed necessary for maximal spinal rehabilitation.” (Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics 1998; 21: 37-50).
