Often when a child or adult is diagnosed with scoliosis, they are told that they only have two options: a standard medical brace, or some form of surgery. The standard medical brace that is provided for individuals with scoliosis is created to stop or pause the progression of the abnormal spinal curvature.
The surgeries that are available all require days of downtime, some risks, and in some cases, bar the individual from ever practicing gymnastics or contact sports in the future. If you’re wondering what The Scoliosis Center of Utah has to offer in the way of scoliosis treatment, it’s a combination of therapies that includes Chiropractic BioPhysics®.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® is a form of chiropractic care that focuses on using customized spinal traction setups and mirror-image adjustments to produce movement in the bones and joints. When guided by an expert, this movement can aid the spine in returning to its optimal posture and position.
If you’ve asked “how is Chiropractic BioPhysics® effective for scoliosis treatment,” then read on to learn more.
Traditional chiropractic care relies heavily on standard adjustments.
Traditional chiropractic care is the first thing that comes to mind when people are looking to understand Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP). This is not at all surprising, as standard chiropractic care is the most common frame of reference for understanding CBP. CBP and standard chiropractic care are, however, different.
Standard/traditional chiropractic relies heavily on standard adjustments to produce effects in the bones and joints. Standard adjustments, which are the manual manipulations that chiropractic is so famous for, are the application of pressure and force in specific directions (at specific parts of the body) to generate movement and circulation.
While manual manipulation is a highly effective tool in any expert chiropractor’s arsenal, standard adjustments alone aren’t usually enough to move the bones in a scoliosis patient. Scoliosis patients require a different type of treatment to experience real movement in their spinal structure.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® uses x-ray and digital imaging-based spinal traction.
Rather than relying exclusively on manual manipulation, Chiropractic BioPhysics® utilizes the power of customized spinal traction setups. These setups are customized based on what is revealed in the x-rays and digital imaging that is taken at a patient’s first appointment.
The initial appointment is always a diagnostic assessment, and your expert CBP-certified chiropractor will use the information gathered in that analysis to determine how CBP can be used to treat the abnormal curve. Without the detailed imaging gathered from the initial diagnostic appointment, it’s impossible for CBP to be effective. Once the spinal traction is customized, patients can enjoy a fully customized treatment that is designed specifically for them.
Medical doctors prescribe orthopedic surgery or standard braces.
If you or your loved one’s scoliosis is severe enough, medical doctors will prescribe orthopedic surgery or a standard medical brace to stop the progression of the curve. If your lifestyle is not compatible with receiving surgery, or your body doesn’t tolerate the brace well, you may find that neither of these options will be helpful for you. That’s where Chiropractic BioPhysics® comes in.
If you or your loved one is not a candidate for surgery or doesn’t respond well to standard medical bracing, or you simply want a holistic form of treatment for scoliosis, then Chiropractic BioPhysics® offers the non-surgical, highly effective intervention that combines the best of chiropractic care with the most advanced diagnostic tools available.
This is ideal for people of all ages, especially those who are looking to remain active and continue with their current lifestyle during their treatment.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® collaborates with the ScoliBrace® system.
In addition to providing customized spinal traction setups, some patients can benefit highly from the ScoliBrace® system. The ScoliBrace® is different than the standard braces that are prescribed by medical professionals.
Instead of simply stopping the progression of the abnormal curve of the spine, the ScoliBrace® is a 3D, completely customized tool that is designed to over-correct the curve, training the bones and joints back into the correct alignment. This unique tool has shown life-transforming results on thousands of patients, and in conjunction with Chiropractic BioPhysics® customized spinal traction setups, can help to reverse and actually correct the abnormal curve of the spine without any surgery.
ScoliBrace® and Chiropractic BioPhysics® work together synergistically to create long-term, transformative effects in the shape of the spine. Your individualized treatment plan may benefit from including both of these tools together, which will be determined by your expert chiropractor at the diagnostic stage of your treatment.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® takes place over a longer duration of time.
Unlike traditional surgical treatments, Chiropractic BioPhysics® occurs over a specific span of time, which may range anywhere from a series of weeks, to months, or beyond. Because of the gentle and gradual nature of Chiropractic BioPhysics®, treatment requires time to progress effectively.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® is different from orthopedic surgery in that while they both require time to become effective, Chiropractic BioPhysics® doesn’t mandate any recovery time or limit patients undergoing treatment from any kind of activities. Chiropractic BioPhysics® affords complete freedom to patients undergoing treatment to practice any kinds of activities that they normally would.
