Advanced Biostructural Chiropractic has to do with restoring the spine, giving it the structure it was meant to have all along. ABC is effective in a way that other chiropractic techniques due to its enhanced immediacy and its progressive nature, meaning your spine will get better and better over time.
You'll start to feel a difference after your very first adjustment. Your body will feel more balanced, light, centered, almost like you're floating.
If your vertebra gets pushed forward, there are no muscles that can pull your vertebra back to the center as there are on the sides of your body. So any sort of trauma that pushed your vertebra forward could be lingering with you still.
ABC is a cutting-edge system that analyzes and adjusts your spine and body over time. ABC inspires the body to recover, release, and unwind from previous injuries or distortions. First, we'll check and release tension trapped in the meningeal system. We then gently adjust stuck-forward vertebrae (anterior), allowing the spine to unwind itself backward in a more posterior and normalized direction again.
If you have any questions about ABC, contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.

Proper lifting technique is an important precaution to take, especially considering that 80% of human beings on the planet will experience some sort of back pain during their lifetime. Back injuries are common in the workplace, too, and many of them come as a result of failing to utilize proper lifting technique.
When lifting heavy objects, both at work and at play, please try to take some of the measures we list below.
Make sure your feet are shoulder-width apart. Ideally, you'll also have one foot slightly ahead of the other, to establish a good, sturdy foundation before you lift.
Never lift with your back. Always squat down to lift a heavy object, remembering to put all of the pressure on your legs.
When lifting, keep your head up, looking straight ahead, and make sure that your back is straight. As an extra measure, make sure that you carry whatever you're lifting close to your body to avoid back injury.
If you have any questions about how you can practice perfect lifting technique, or if you experience a back injury at work or outside of work, contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
