Traditional chiropractic is the most common type of service offered in Seattle, but our patients have discovered that chiropractic care has many different stratagies. Studies have shown how adjustments to the neck or low back results in quicker, cheaper and more effective pain relief than other treatments such as drugs, physiotherapy, exercise or back school. Traditional chiropractic care may have helped your problem originally, but it eventually may return because the structural problem has not been corrected.
Belltown Spine & Wellness Chiropractic's spinal program comes in. It is integrated spinal care center is distinct and different than the spinal care most people have had in other chiropractic offices. Our corrective system starts where most other systems end. We have a targeted 4-step program designed to not only get you relieve pain as quick as possible, but balance and strengthen your structure so the condition doesn't return.
What is Normal Posture? Just as there are normal values for heart rate and blood pressure, there is also a normal standing posture and spinal position. Normal posture is one that has the head, rib cage, pelvis and feet aligned and balanced one upon the other, both from the front and side views. Your posture is the “Window into your Spine.”
From the front view, your spine should be straight and vertical, and from the side, your spine should have normal alternating curves to allow for normal pain-free, maximal range of motion and movement.
From the front, the ideal posture is symmetric and the spine is straight. From the side view, the head, rib cage, pelvis and feet are vertically balanced. The spine has essential curves in the side view. These curves have specific normal angles that can be measured from x-rays.
The doctors at Belltown Spine & Wellness are your Seattle spinal rehabilitation specialists. We provide a structural and postural spinal rehabilitation program that are called Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® or CBP.
CBP is an the most advanced and researched method that looks at restoring spinal alignment and posture as part of a complete Spinal Rehabilitation system. CBP treatment is an advanced method that goes beyond traditional Chiropractic adjustment techniques by integrating spinal rehabilitation.
All of our custom spinal rehabilitation programs are based on published clinical trails for patient outcomes that include exercise, adjustments and Mirror Image® exercise, traction and/or body weighting. Our Spinal Rehabilitation program is similar to the way Orthodontists change the structure of their patients' teeth.
As shown in the cervical x-ray and Pain Outcome graph above, improvements in alignment and pain reduction can be especially dramatic with CBP care, as compared to traditional manipulation alone.
An “adjustment” is the term used to describe a technique used by a chiropractor to realign and balance the patient’s spine. Traditional chiropractic adjusting entails the chiropractic doctor mobilizing with his or her hands in a specific and skillful way an area of the spine. The adjustment creates a gapping effect within the joint. This relieves the local tension within the joint, reduces stress on adjacent nerves and creates many beneficial effects.
Sometimes our Seattle Chiropractor - doctor may use a special drop table to assist in adjusting, or use a hand-held instruments (Activator, Impulse or arthrostim) to deliver the adjustment as well. Our doctors use the latest technologies in spinal care, providing the highest level of service available.
