Researchers Use Mathematical Modeling to Replicate the Spine

How It Works

Without a three-dimensional representation of the spine, it’s impossible to understand and correct the spinal shape precisely. By creating a digital representation of the spine, it’s possible to create a treatment plan and intervention based on the multi-dimensional model.

What It Means

Treatment and research can be more precise and exact with a three-dimensional, geometric model that can help create accurate coordinates for treatment plans. This geometric understanding of the spinal shape in both normal and abnormal curvature is invaluable for creating the customized treatment plans that Chiropractic BioPhysics® is known for.

Researchers used 50 healthy patient x-rays to create a digital composite of thoracic kyphosis in the spine. This model was created using mathematical modeling, through a process that generates an average based on the measurements of the spines being used.


By using precise measurements derived from real-life spinal models, corrective chiropractic treatment can be geometrically customized to produce the most effective treatment possible.
