A Clinical Goal for “Normal” Cervical Lordosis is Created

How It Works 

Measurements of the spine help researchers and clinicians understand how the shape of the spine impacts pain and wellness. Measurements also aid clinicians to calculate corrective measurements for treatment. 

In this study, researchers used the data of various individuals with a wide range of cervical lordosis measurements to determine whether certain measurements indicated a likelihood of pain and neck ailments. They discovered that lordosis under 20 degrees was correlated with pain, discomfort, and other complaints, whereas lordosis between 31 and 40 degrees did not correlate with discomfort (and was therefore considered “normal”). 

What It Means 

With an understanding of which cervical lordosis measurements are considered normal and non- problematic, as well as which measurements are likely to indicate dysfunction and pain, treatment plans can be more easily made to target “normal” measurements and correct those that are abnormal. 

Chiropractic BioPhysics® is a treatment known for using geometry and physics to correct misalignment of the spine. In order to do this successfully, carefully acquired measurements are needed to create mathematical models that can predictably move the spine from an “abnormal” degree of curvature to a “normal” degree of curvature. 


Corrective CBP® chiropractic therapy is geometrically tailored to provide the most efficient treatment possible by employing precise measurements based on carefully conducted research.
