A range of clinical exercises, adjustments (manual and mechanically assisted) and tractions are employed to the individual patient's spine and pelvis distortion patterns in a 'Mirror Image' approach.

Mirror Image adjusting refers to the degree of pressure and angle applied to the spine or pelvis in the opposite direction of the original distortion. For example, if the CBP spinal model applied to a patient's upper spine X-ray showed an extremely pronounced hunch curve, the practitioner would employ a corrective program strategy aimed around placing pressure to the spine in the opposite direction of the curve. Put simply, if normal was a zero and the poor spine curve represented -5, then a 'Mirror Image' adjustment would place periodic pressure on the curve at +5 until the spine balanced out at zero.

Sophisticated CBP traction equipment makes Mirror Image adjustments very straightforward. Traction is almost always necessary as many studies have shown long-term biomechanical changes are only reversible through application of constant forces over a period of time. Conventional manipulation performed at standard chiropractic, osteopathic and physiotherapy clinics alone cannot achieve significant and lasting changes in spinal alignment.
