Las Vegas Corrective Chiropractic
ACHIEVE OUTSTANDING RESULTS WITH CHIROPRACTIC BIOPHYSICS / CORRECTIVE CARE
While microdiscectomy spine surgery is widely regarded as one of the more effective types of low back surgery, research findings show patients can obtain the same relief for low back pain and sciatica from spinal manipulation by a chiropractor.
An October 2010 article in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics stated that 60 percent of patients with low back pain and sciatica who failed to improve through non-surgical medical management reported similar results as those who underwent costly microdiscectomy surgery.
Chiropractic is repeatedly shown to be a cost-effective choice for patients suffering from low back pain, as demonstrated in the October 2009 “Mercer Report” from the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress:
Chiropractic care is more effective than other modalities for treating low back and neck pain. When considering effectiveness and cost together, chiropractic physician care for low back and neck pain is highly cost-effective….
Advanced Spine and Posture in Las Vegas offers traditional chiropractic adjusting techniques in addition to integrating cutting-edge exercise and traction methods, such as Chiropractic BioPhysics (See CPB below), that have been shown to provide continued long-term relief.
MIRROR IMAGE POSTURAL EXERCISES TO HELP RESTORE SPINAL ALIGNMENT
Mirror image exercises are performed to stretch shortened muscles or to strengthen postural muscles that have weakened and adapted to asymmetric abnormal postures.
Although strength and conditioning exercises have not proven to correct posture, postural exercises performed in the mirror image have shown progress in the reduction of posture and spinal displacements.
Various Mirror Image exercises can be performed to actively maneuver the posture into the opposite or Mirror Image position.
Example 1 – Abnormal Forward Head (Translation) Posture
Left: The skeletal animation shows the impact to the spine with this posture
Center: Exercise uses the patient’s muscles and neck as resistance
Right: Patient uses an elastic band secured to the head for increased contraction effort
Example 2 – Abnormal Lateral Shifted Ribcage, Mid or Lower Back Posture
Left: The skeletal animation shows the impact to the spine with a right lateral ribcage posture (translation)
Center: Exercise uses the patient’s muscles and upper body as resistance
Right: Patient uses an elastic band around the shoulder for increased contraction effort
Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBP®?
Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP®) is currently the most researched and scientific chiropractic technique. Consisting of mathematicians, engineers, medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic and even a rocket scientist, the research team has thoroughly studied all aspects of the chiropractic experience for reliability, validity and consistency of spinal correction. The CBP® technique has been published in nearly 150 prestigious medical journals and publications, such as “Spine” and “The Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development.”
How can children benefit from chiropractic?
Did you know that the first part that forms in an embryo is the nervous system? From the nervous system, direction is given for the proper formation and normal growth of vital organs, muscles and the skeleton. A properly aligned spine is what protects a child’s nervous system.
Advanced Spine & Posture doctors are CBP® certified and specially trained to detect spinal abnormalities even in the youngest spines. Our doctors can see abnormal posture, feel muscle spasms, and if needed, verify the presence of spinal abnormalities in children with X-rays. Unlike other forms of chiropractic, CBP® Doctors are trained to correct spinal abnormalities that can lead to pain and dysfunction later in life before they become permanent.
Care today, Prevention for tomorrow
A child’s daily activities can damage the spine, including playing sports, carrying a backpack or sitting in class. It is recommended to perform regular spinal checks to detect damage or improper growth before symptoms, such as pain or discomfort, begin.
Since CBP® chiropractic is the most researched and validated form of chiropractic worldwide, your child will receive the best available care to return his or her spine back to normal. Our CBP® certified doctors will also teach you and your child how to make this preventative care last.
