Objective: To present a case of Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP®) protocol of care used on a patient with cervical and lumbopelvic postural distortions.
Clinical Features: A 34-year-old former rugby player presents to a CBP® chiropractic office with a history of the following chronic issues: headaches, mid and low back pain, congested sinuses, and upper respiratory symptoms for over twenty years.
Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received CBP® care over a 9-month period receiving approximately 33 sessions. Mirror-image® adjustments, mirror-image® exercises, and mirror-image® traction were used to reduce the patient’s spinal subluxations and postural distortions, in addition to a heel lift for his right shoe. The patient was seen 2 times per week for the first 12 weeks then was seen 1 time per week thereafter for an additional 6 months. Follow-up radiographs at both 18 weeks and 36 weeks of care showed progressive improvement in postural measurements toward normal. This was associated with improvement in headaches, sinus and respiratory symptoms.
Conclusion: Improvement in the patient’s abnormal posture and reductions of the radiographic spinal subluxations were achieved using CBP® protocol of care.

My name is Ivanna. I am 20 years old; I have been suffering from severe and continuous headaches since I was 9. My headaches were as often as 3-4 times a week and on a pain scale of 1-10, an 8-9.
I used to take Advil, Tylenol and Aleve almost on a daily basis, until I started to become a little resistant to them and had to take up to three a day. I would visit doctors and they would always tell me I had sinusitis and gave me antibiotics and sumatriptan (by prescription) to help with the pain. For many years I took antibiotics 1-2 times a year just because of headaches, without counting the times I took antibiotics because of sickness. I was not happy with my lifestyle for a long time; my quality of life was being severally affected. I could not do many activities that others would because I was in pain.
In December 2013, I decided to visit a Neurologist, but did not get around to it. Luckily that was about the time I started working with Dr. Hermann Diehl (Elevation Health doctor). He explained to me how my spine, posture and subluxations could be causing these headaches. I had never thought to go to a chiropractor. I started working with Dr. Diehl about a month ago. He started my corrective care right away, maybe a couple days after I started working with him.
I am happy to announce that my headaches have been reduced exponentially and I feel like a have more energy, more than what I have had in a long time. In the past three and a half weeks I have only had 3 headaches. This might be a lot to others but for me it’s great. Going from 3-4 times a week to 3 headaches a month, in such short time of care is AMAZING! I am very hopeful by the end of my corrective care my headaches will be reduced even more.

You wouldn’t knowingly put your children in danger. We know that. But what if they are being poisoned without your knowledge? I can almost guarantee you that they are.
- Have your children been vaccinated?
- Do they drink soda?
- Are they on any medications for colds, infections or ADHD?
- Do they eat cakes, pies, candies or pastries?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then your children are at risk for both physical and mental illness.
Whether it is from medication, vaccinations or the chemicals found in our food supply, the health of our children is declining exponentially, and your child could be next unless you take action now.

A large portion of our practice involves caring for children from birth through adolescence. I am embarking on a continuing series of articles about our most precious assets – our kids. Simply put, kids are the future. Let’s get them there in a healthy state.
Stewarding a new life is the most important task that could ever be asked of an individual. And I believe this task can only be well achieved when parents are armed and equipped with right knowledge and truth; allowing them to make decisions and choices in which they can feel certain and confident.
As you embark upon your journey of healthcare enlightenment, I ask that you entertain the following questions:
· Would you like to optimize the growth and development of your child/future children?
· Would you like to optimize their future health and life potential?
· Would you like to give them the gift of abundant health expression?
· Would you like to set them up for a lifetime of successful living?
· Would you like to give them the greatest gift in life: a disease-free and sickness-free life experience!
Let’s begin here: What is chiropractic and what does a chiropractor do?
First of all, chiropractic is not a substitute for traditional types of health care. Medical doctors have their areas of expertise, we have ours. The difference? We are specialists who correct what is often a silent yet debilitating condition called a “vertebral subluxation”. What’s that? It’s an interference with normal nerve function. It can be caused by a variety of factors.
Nerves conduct life from the brain to the tissues. Free from interference, healthy nerves conduct messages throughout your body. This is the “God given life force” within you. This is that innate sense that sparks animation in all cells and coordinates the functions of the body. But, as our bodies suffer traumas, the innate sense is sometimes short circuited. The vertebral subluxation is that short circuit. The results can range from no symptoms at all to a sense of general unhealthiness to minor discomfort to acute physical pain. You’ve probably had this happen to you without knowing it. Cut the nerve to a tooth and the tooth will die. Cut the nerve to your thumb and it won’t function as it should. Nerves conduct life - interfere with this natural conduction process and healthy tissues may become diseased or even die.
Some symptoms actually mean that your body is working better. So our emphasis as chiropractors is to correct the interference to allow you or your child to function as best as naturally possible.
