Case History: How We Help If You’ve Had Back Surgery.

Mrs. A is a 78 year old patient who attended the practice with chronic lower back pains and general disability. She had FOUR (4) lower back surgeries. The patient was due for surgery number five but decided on a different, more conservative path.

Looking at the X-ray of the lower back, you will note she had multiple fusions with metal rods. The metal fixations were ‘power drilled’ into the spine with four large self tapping screws. The screws hold two plates across the base of the spine.

Case History: Chronic Back Pain and Forward Head Posture

Correcting ‘Australian Posture’ – Chronic Back Pain

Case History: Chronic Lower Back Pain, Forward Head Carriage and ‘Australian Posture’

Mr. M. is a 44 year old male sales and office worker who attended the Practice.  Yes a real patient, real person.

He was suffering with chronic lower back pain (CLBP). He had been enduring spinal pain for 25 years and things were getting progressively worse.

In terms of postural distortion; Mr. M. had what we affectionally call an ‘Australian Posture’. Australian Posture is something we commonly see in Practice and is a driver of many lower back and neck conditions.

Australian Posture is the forward translation of the torso and head forward of the vertical green axis line, in the manner you see below. Not only does this create tremendous pressure on the lower back, but also the neck and shoulders.

Chiropractic BioPhysics Featured in ‘The Age’

CBP Featured in Lifestyle Magazine of The Age Newspaper

A recent article featured in The Age, explored one reporter’s experience with the ‘new Chiropractic trend’ Chiropractic BioPhysics.

Having tried standard Chiropractic, the reporter Sue Williams describes her experience with Dr. Alex Hopwood, a Chiropractic BioPhysics practitioner or ‘Corrective Chiropractor’.

Of interest is that Dr. Hooper and Dr. Hopwood trained together in America, completing the intensive CBP certification program at The Ideal Spine Centre in Boise.

This is an interesting first hand account of what it is like to receive CBP care.

Note that @ The Spinal Centre, the entire clinic is focused on the Postural and Structural Correction of CBP. In particular, the Hawthorn Spinal Centre, is built from the ‘ground up’ encapsulating the very best features of the larger rehabilitative centres in the USA.

Chiropractic BioPhysics – Fun For The Whole Family

Dr. Ruby Attending To Spinal Rehabilitation

With the increase use of mobile technology it is more important than ever to have your children checked to ensure their spine is growing with normal alignment. 

Hours spent in front of a screen, heads bent forward, shoulder hunched with anterior head carriage can reverse the lordotic curve within the neck. Loss of the normal cervical (neck) curve can create a lot of strain on the neck and shoulders – even generating headaches.

Loss of cervical curve is easily reversed with mirror image correction and simple traction protocols.

It is so easy – the whole family can do it. Under the watchful eye of our rehab team member – Dr. Ruby.
