ABC – or Advanced Biostructural Correction

Advanced Biostructural Correction ( ABC)  is a chiropractic method of analysis and adjusting that helps the body with its natural alignment.  The most unique and important feature of the ABC adjustment is the body is assessed and adjusted as one whole functioning unit.

ABC practitioners assess the person’s whole body (feet, knees, hips, pelvis, spine and shoulders) with every visit, ensuring each part of the body is posturally aligned.  This allows your body to be in its most efficient state.

An assessment is done in a standing position, which allows the vertebrae that have shifted in a forward direction to be isolated and re-aligned with specific movements.

If you have been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Chiropractor Dr O’Brien know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
