Structural Spinal Rehabilitation
Many people have been to chiropractors who don't utilize traction in the office. Others have never been to a chiropractor and may be wondering why traction is a necessary and important part of your care. The fact is: traction is the only known corrective method used to restore normal curves to the spine.
Full Spine Remodeling
At Backbone, we are the first chiropractic facility in the country to implement the full spine remodeling tables designed by Adrian Dennewald (chiropractor/inventor) and Dr. Deed Harrison, Chiropractic's most published author in Index Medicus.
Mirror Image Exercises
We prescribe individualized corrective exercise programs designed to gradually strengthen your muscles and help correct spinal and postural conditions.
Digital X-Rays and Analysis
Spinal X-Rays may be taken to determine the curve of your spine or to check for spinal defects. Spinal X-Rays can help detect; fractures [breaks], tumors [abnormal masses of cells], arthritis, disc problems, osteoporosis (thinning bones), scoliosis, infection and deformities in the curves of the spine which can lead to a break down in the tissues causing dysfunction, pain, and decreases organ health. The restoration of normal structure can lead to normalized body function.
As part of our on-going efforts to be on the leading edge, Backbone is one of the first CBP spinal rehab facilities in the world to offer full spine digital analysis!
Digital Posture Analysis
Posture Ray is the ONLY system designed utilizing the original spine research data ultimately published and supported in top scientific peer-reviewed journals such as "Spine, Journal of Orthopedic Research"; "European Spine Journal"; "Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation" and "The Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques."
Whole Body Vibration
Whole-Body Vibration is backed by hundreds of peer-reviewed Scientific Studies from some of the most prestigious institutions on the planet.
Since the 1960s, the Soviet Aerospace program has used whole-body vibration therapy to help the cosmonauts battle the effects of zero gravity on the human body. Being in space for prolonged periods of time caused a myriad of physical problems including: loss of muscle strength, loss of flexibility, loss of bone density, and prolonged recovery time. The technology was originally designed to treat bone and lean muscle mass loss in the cosmonauts who had spent considerable time in a weightlessness environment, in addition to enhancing power and strength and accelerating recovery in Russian Olympic athletes. Eventually, the technology was introduced in the early 1990s, where further research was done to validate it's effects. Due to many benefits, the technology has quickly gained acceptance and is now utilized by universities, professional sports teams, NASA, and health professionals in rehabilitation and medical fields.
One of the amazing facts about whole-body vibration is that it works not so much by repetitive strength exercises (like lifting weights, riding a bicycle, rowing, swimming, etc.) but by stimulating the part of the nervous system that controls strength (muscle contraction). Interestingly, it seems that WBV is also a great way to stimulate the Cerebellum, which among other things, coordinates the spinal postural muscles. The bottom line is it works.
