CBP Chiropractic Rehabilitation
Mirror Image® Adjustments & Spine / Postural Exercise.
Carefully planned adjustments, exercises, and spinal remodeling (traction) gently shift improperly aligned joints, muscles, and ligaments back to normal then beyond, mirroring the displacement. By over-correcting in measured amounts and holding for precise periods, the misaligned body tissues “learn” proper position, and, step-by-step, they then begin to maintain that proper, normal position.
The adjustments, tools, devices, and exercises to aid Mirror Image treatment are many, and your CBP-trained Doctor of Chiropractic will work with you to determine those most effective for your situation. The result will be more mobility, less pain, and better health.
Mirror Image Adjustments: In effect, the body parts are positioned in the exact opposite position of the abnormal alignment, determined by posture and x-ray analysis and then your chiropractor performs the adjustment. The adjustment can be performed using a specially designed instrument, using a table with moveable parts, or by hand. No one is too young or too old for Mirror Image Adjustments.
Your adjustments improve movement and help your body reset the proper sense of balance and muscle tone by stimulating the nerves that control position and tone. Your Chiropractor may have you stand up so he / she can look at you before and after the adjustment to verify improved alignment; you may notice a change in balance and position as well.
Mirror Image® Spine & Postural Exercise.
For patients in more advanced stages of treatment, active resistive bands and specific equipment may be used to aid in the corrective exercise. For example, a weighted head or body belt may be applied in a specific manner to assist your body’s natural tendency to correct its posture. Your exercises will improve flexibility, strengthen weakened muscles, and help your body maintain the proper sense of postural balance, spinal alignment, and muscle tone.
