Chiropractic Biophysics

Introduction
  • Chiropractic Biophysics applies the principles of
    mechanical engineering toward the correction of
    the human spine. Just as you have a normal
    temperature and blood pressure, your spine has a
    normal clinical position.
  • If your spinal column's curvatures are abnormal
    and ignored, this can cause a lower state of
    overall health and will lead to premature
    degeneration of your spine.

Background History
  • Chiropractic Biophysics(CBP) was founded by
    Donald D. Harrison, a chiropractor who also has a
    PhD in applied mathematics and a master's degree
    in mechanical engineering. CBP's origins lie in
    another technique called Pettibon, which Harrison
    learned while attending the Western States
    Chiropractic College. In this system,
    chiropractors use side-view x-rays of the neck to
    gauge its alignment and then try to change that
    alignment using drop-table adjustments.

Anaysis For Effective Treatment
The ideal spine has near perfect vertical balance
of the upper and lower-most vertebra for each of
these three spinal regions. Each region has
points of inflection the mathematical term for
change in direction from concavity to convexity
against which to compare your x-rays.

The Bottom Line
  • Patients visiting CBP offices typically receive
    boilerplate examinations to determine whether
    their spinal curvature is "ideal." They are also
    advised to have x-ray examinations of their
    entire spine even if they have no symptoms
    justifying such tests
