Subiaco Chiropractic is the longest standing ABC practice in Australia.
Advanced Bio-structural Correction (ABC) is a pre-eminent emerging Chiropractic technique currently gaining professional respect and adoption across the world by many chiropractors. This new technique differs from the previous chiropractic techniques in many ways.
The ABC technique results in cumulative and tangible results. The primary focus is to build postural strength. Traditionally, postural changes took months to occur or sometimes never transpired. This technique provides predictable and consistent results in building postural changes over time, with all the health benefits that accompanies the broader chiropractic profession.
ABC builds on the cornerstone of Chiropractic, as well as providing the means to handle the why one area of the spine can influence another. The childhood song actually got it right when they said ‘the shin bone’s connected to the knee bone, the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone… The body is amazingly connected and it all influences each other, this is the primary focus of ABC.
“There is a staggering average of over 80 contact points that an ABC practitioner will treat on every consultation! Not just your site of pain, as this is usually your point of maximum compensation” Says Nick Sheldrick, principle Chiropractor at Subiaco Chiropractic
The ABC therapy works back through your body’s, yes your whole body’s, history of trauma, and allows your body to heal at its own rate.
For 85% of patients, ABC will make visible postural changes within the first 3 weeks, if not on the first treatment. Once you get the structure of the posture right, all the muscles normalise and function correctly. These results are the reason I studied to be a chiropractor, now I have a 100% focus on posture correction.
“ABC technique is also great for pain relief. By improving the posture, it can also take the pressure off areas of the body where pain was being experienced. The result is overall health benefits to every part of the body, by postural adjustment.
Previous Chiropractic methods align the bones of the spine and pelvis, but it doesn’t consider the effect of the compensation patterns to the injury, that causes tension patterns and eventual adhesions within the spinal canal. The bone is cracked, but the internal spinal adhesions remain the same.
Once there is an adhesion, movement is restricted and the spine becomes locked into a pattern. Pain can often occur well after an accident. For example a whiplash injury from a car accident can cause pain to occur 3 – 4 months after the incident, because of the formation of internal spinal adhesions or meningal adhesions.
The Advanced Bio-structural Correction (ABC) addresses the problem at the foundation of the pattern – at the spinal cord adhesion.
Its able to release the adhesion, freeing the body from the current adhesion pattern and allows a new level of posture to be created. This process is accumulated by ABC Practitioners on their patients bodies over time to regain movement, build posture. The technique itself follows a set protocol with a list of steps to follow. The ABC technique works by releasing the last physical compensation, fixing injuries from the most recent, to the oldest injuries.
What this achieves is an anti-ageing outcome where niggly aches, pains and restrictions are removed and the body starts to work as well as it did 20 and even 30 years ago. With ABC, ultimately, there is nothing left to fix in the body and the body is returned to its original relaxed and pliant state at birth.
This new technique is set to revolutionise the chiropractic practice with consistent and predictable results.
