Our hinsdale chiropractic department is unlike regular chiropractic that mainly focus on immediate pain relief, Chiropractic BioPhysics goes one step further to also correct the source of the problem. That’s why most patients under the care of a CBP chiropractor not only report relief from pain and discomfort, but as their posture begins to align, they notice other conditions clearing up as well. Our hinsdale chiropractic department has been recognized as one of the top places to go for corrective care. Our Doctor Dr. Steve Petzel is also one of the top ranked chiropractors in the state of Illinois as ranked on RateMD.com
Correct posture is at the core of the Chiropractic BioPhysics method of treatment. The curves in your spine act as levers, shock absorbers, and resistance to gravity; they also protect and reduce forces acting on the spinal cord and nerve tissues. But, gravity, age, poor posture, improper physical activity, injury, and disease can all play a role in the misalignment of your spinal curves and, as a result, your entire body.
The process will start with a thorough history and a series of orthopedic and neurological tests. We will follow this up with a detailed range of motion exam and some baseline muscle strength measurements. Following the exam, we take a series of x-rays to determine how the structure of the spine looks as well as taking some stress x-rays to determine how much flexibility the spine has. This allows us to get a good idea of how much motion is capable at the segmental level. We analyize the digital x-rays using an advanced software analysis system called PostureRay. Following the exam process we will give you a detailed presentation that covers what treatment will include and what type of changes can be made.
