Congratulations to Dr. Hooper

Chiropractic BioPhysics Certified Practitioner

The Ideal Spine Health Centre - USAMany may be aware Dr. Hooper recently attended an intensive training program in Chiropractic at Boise Idaho – America.

The accreditation program was fo an advanced form of Chiropractic Care called Chiropractic BioPhysics or ‘CBP’.

Dr. Hooper is now one of only 16 Doctors of Chiropractic in Australia with CBP Certification.

In fact, he is the only Doctor of Chiropractic in Australia to hold a CBP Certification and Masters Degree in Chinese Medicine.

However, at the end of the day, it is all about you as a patient of the practice and providing the best and most scientific, evidence based care possible.


Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP)

The most scientific and effective Chiropractic technique.

Chiropractic BioPhysics is a highly-advanced, scientific, and proven chiropractic technique which corrects and restores your spine back to alignment.

Chiropractic BioPhysics combines biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health.

That means your diagnosis – and treatment – will be based on sound scientific and chiropractic principles.


How is Chiropractic BioPhysics Different from Other Techniques?

Unlike regular chiropractic that mainly focus on immediate pain relief, Chiropractic BioPhysics goes one step further to also correct the source of the problem.

Chiropractic BioPhysics is a chiropractic technique developed in the 1970s, by Donald D. Harrison, PhD, DC, MSE.

In addition to using standard chiropractic techniques, CBP treatment involves specifically positioning patients’ spines and body parts into unique positions called their Mirror Image.

Techniques include joint and body part adjustments, specific exercises, and spine remodelling techniques.

CBP Technique is not just another trend or fad—eight chiropractic colleges from the USA to Canada to Australia teach the technique in two graduate courses.

And more than 130 clinical trials and research studies conducted over more than three decades prove that the techniques and methods of Chiropractic BioPhysics produce results.

With 14 post-graduate courses, CBP Technique offers chiropractors more than 190 hours of continued training, covering the latest strategies to treat spine disorders and improve patient health and well being.

CBP Technique comes with years of clinical research and peer-reviewed publications. The CBP research team consists of mathematicians, engineers, Medical Doctors, Statisticians, Doctors of Chiropractic and other professionals from multiple fields.

This team of researchers has thoroughly investigated all aspects of the CBP Technique spinal rehabilitation methods. As a result, it is safe to say that CBP Chiropractors use tested and proven techniques for remodelling your spine from top to bottom.


So How Will This Help You – A Patient of the Practice?

We are introducing a range of initiatives within the Practice to provide a higher level of patient care.CBP Certified

You will notice that we have introduced new machines and benches over the course of this year. We have essentially been ‘tooling up’ ready for the transition to this advanced type of Chiropractic Care.

If you are getting great results and happy with proceedings now you do not have to change a thing.

You can keep receiving the same fantastic care you are receiving currently.

However, ‘School is never out for the Professional’.

Our core objective is to be at the cutting edge of new developments within the field, therefore we are obliged to bring these new technologies to the clinic.

Indeed you will be witnessing the most significant evolutions of practice at The Spinal Centre.

For example, those that have used the new vibration plates, you will identify what a great rehabilitation tool they are.

The Vibration plates are a fantastic machine for stretching and strength programs but also terrific for preparing you for your spinal corrections.


So What’s New?

We will be outlining what’s new in subsequent posts, but here is a taste of some of the developments coming within the Clinic:

Posture Screen – Digitised Postural Assessment: State of the art computerised posture analysis technology to accurately and completely assess a patient’s posture. Posture Screen is an iPad app that uses digital technology to capture your image and then assess any postural disturbances or imbalances.

Posture Ray EMR Software: We have acquired state of the art X-ray processing software to enhance and optimise the diagnostic quality of digital radiographic images. It is the only software to use the proprietary full spine models developed by the CBP Research team of engineers and mathematicians, published in some of the top journals of the world.

As a patient you receive a comprehensive report of YOUR X-rays compared to true normal in an easy to understand handout that makes sense to you and your family.

ViberPlates: Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is an incredibly powerful phenomena, originally developed for Russian Cosmonauts. WBV can be used to assist with virtually all strength, stretching and rehabilitation programs. The 3D Vibrational Technology provided by our medical grade plates is quite impressive in its ability to help you recover faster, improve your flexibility and stimulate muscles you never thought you had.

Drop Piece Tables: Yes the new benches are there for a reason. They allow us to perform a range of Chiropractic Corrections that are beyond what we can do on the traditional benches. The new benches allow us to implement the new style of Chiropractic Care: CBP – in particular Mirror Image Adjustments and Postural Corrections.

We identify the new benches are a little uncomfortable for Acupuncture. We will be taking steps to draft patients who are having Acupuncture or Traditional Chinese Medicine into the rooms with the more comfortable benches. In the mean time we can provide a soft face cushion to make your treatment more comfortable. Information about the transition will be in a subsequent handout.

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. Mirror Image Adjustments improve movement and help your body reset to a proper sense of balance and muscle tone by stimulating the nerves that control position and tone.

Mirror Image Exercises: Under the guidance of the Doctor of Chiropractic or Physiotherapist, the body parts are manoeuvred by the patient into the exact opposite position of the abnormal alignment determined by posture and X-ray analysis. These specific and unique exercises for each patient will improve flexibility, strengthen weak muscles and help your body maintain the proper sense of postural balance, spinal alignment and muscle tone.

Specialised Methods of Spinal Traction: We are currently sourcing state of the art traction and spinal remodelling equipment from America. Again, we will have more details as they come to hand but in the new year we will have the latest in Chiropractic Remodelling equipment available for your use within the Clinic.
