This is the first of four articles detailing how chiropractors use the CBP Spine Model to define what it means to have an ideal spine
. If you’ve experienced any kind of neck, shoulder, or head pain, we’ll delve into what’s causing it.
In the CBP model, also known as the Harrison Spinal Model, the side view of vertebrae moves along a geometric path from the first neck vertebra to the bottom of the lower back. The evidence-based model allows chiropractors to make customized patient treatments.
