My chiropractic career started after graduating in February 2000. Within a few years of practice I realized that the treatment skills I had learned in school weren’t producing the results espoused by my teachers. Naturally I questioned my skills and began exploring and learning techniques to improve outcomes for my clients. What became evident was that some techniques worked for certain clients but not for others. No matter how many techniques I employed the reality was clients were seeing only short term relief from their symptoms. This was not the miracle treatment that was promised during my education. After 12 years of practice my frustration and disenchantment with this approach had peaked which lead me to consider a change in career.

It was around this time that I stumbled on to Advanced Bio-Structural Correction (ABC™). ABC™ is a form of structural body care that, in addition to relieving symptoms, begins to resolve the body’s structural imbalances that are responsible for symptoms. I was able to speak to a number of people who had experienced ABC™ treatment and heard remarkable stories of body symptom improvement in addition to resolution of long-standing body problems. I was intrigued and began receiving treatment. As I progressed through treatment I experienced many of the physical ups and downs that are expected with ABC™ as the body unwinds through previous accumulated injuries and compensations. Five years later I can honestly say that my body feels the best it has since I was a young adult. I can perform my work and engage in my workouts unhindered by body pain and dysfunction.

Needless to say I began learning ABC™ immediately after my first treatment and rather than a change in career I experienced a renewal in my desire to help my clients resolve the body issues that plague them. It is sincerely a pleasure for me to help my clients achieve the relief they are seeking and I look forward to helping you.

Advanced Biostructural Correction™ (ABC™)

Is a very effective chiropractic technique that allows for full spinal correction so the body can work the way it was designed to. On this page are some before-and-after photos of clients receiving ABC™, some representative success stories, and a more detailed explanation of ABC™.

The results are often dramatic and they last. The spine is unlocked and a three-dimensional unwinding process takes place over days, weeks, months and years. All structures from the skull to the toes are evaluated and aligned in ways that allow for the body to work as a single, synchronous functioning unit. The body unwinds and remodels to its optimal state.

One must feel it to believe it. You will feel the difference.

Advanced Biostructural Correction™ (ABC™)

A system of analyzing and adjusting the spine and body that, over time, allows the body to unwind and recover from its previous injuries and distortions, and thus achieve its optimal, structural and functional state. This is achieved by:

  • First checking for and releasing tension in the meningeal system. The meninges are the tough, elastic coverings of the brain and spinal cord. Besides protecting the brain and spinal cord, they also act as an elastic stabilizer (like a big rubber band) running from the tailbone to the head to help hold the spine together. They should never be a problem, but in a spine that is partially stuck forward, improper tension or fixation of the meninges can cause a misaligned vertebra to become locked out of position. Therefore, this must usually be addressed before the vertebrae can be easily moved into their correct positions.
  • Only adjusting those vertebrae and other bones that the body cannot retrieve or reposition on its own. In the spine, this means gently adjusting ONLY those vertebrae that have become stuck forward (anterior), because the body has no way of pulling them backward (posterior). Below the neck, we have no muscles that pull vertebrae backward, but we do have muscles pulling in the other directions. This sequence of procedures allows the spine to begin to unwind and uncoil like a big spring and correct itself as it has been trying to do since the original injury(ies).This is so even if the injury(ies) happened years or even decades in the past.

The entire spine, skull, ribcage, shoulders, pelvis, legs and feet work together as a single, synchronous, functional unit.

The ABC™ protocol also corrects the forward spinal lean that has been pulling on the brainstem, spinal cord and causing back muscles to over work to compensate for this forward lean. Nervous tissue that has been under constant mechanical tension is allowed to slacken, restoring normal nerve flow, often for the first time in many years. This accounts for much of ABC™’s health benefits for everyone.

The unwinding process is at times rapid and dramatic (and symptomatic). At other times, unwinding is slow and methodical, requiring numerous “nudges” by the chiropractor and causing the patient little discomfort. The pace of unwinding is controlled more by your body and what it can self-correct without help than by the doctor, but when your body needs the help, getting adjusted more often both speeds things up and makes the process much less symptomatic.
