Advanced Bio-structural Correction
What is Advanced Bio-structural Correction?
Advanced Bio-structural Correction, ABC is a unique method of treating back/body pain and it's related dysfunction, developed by Dr. Jesse Jutkowitz, an engineer turned chiropractor. He was frustrated that not allof his patients were able to be helped by traditional chiropractic methods. Through x-ray analysis and review of neuro-surgical reports, Dr. Jutkowitz discovered two sources of potential problems not addressed by most chiropractic treatments.
The first problem area he discovered was adhesions or scar tissue of the meninges. the covering of the brain and spinal cord. Meningeal adhesions can develop after trauma, repetitive motions, or prolonged poor posture. The second over looked aspect his research revealed is vertebra that have shifted forward in the body, a direction in which the body cannot self correct.
Dr. Jutkowititz devised a method in which these two overlooked causes of musculoskeletal 'dis-ease' or discomfort could be corrected, called Advanced Bio-structural Correction. In this technique the body is stretched in a very specific manner to release the meningeal scar tissue around the brain, spinal cord and the bones that surround them. It also realigns bones that are in a position that the body cannot self recover.
How does ABC work?
ABC frees adhesions between the meninges, the brain, spinal cord, and the bones that protect them. It also realigns bones that are in a position the body cannot self recover. When adhesions have developed and/or bones are in a position that cannot be recovered, the body will try to protect itself by repositioning other structures and bones in order to balance itself and to protect the nervous system. Chronic problems occur when the body is no longer able to adapt to the multitude of restrictions.
To correct these issues, a series of manual maneuvers are performed. Because adhesions/scar tissue are laid down in the body in layers as the injuries occur, the adhesions are corrected or removed in layers as well as the body retraces through former injuries. This process is repeated over a series of visits that can takes months to years as the body remodels scar tissue.
Who would benefit?
Patients who have had long term conditions that have not responded to other methods of treatment are well suited for ABC. One might say, 'When all else fails, try ABC.'
Dr. Brad's wife, was his inspiration for mastering ABC. She had been in four car accidents including being hit and knocked unconscious as a child. She received temporary relief with tradition care but was physically unable to lift even so much as a purse without causing pain. Her case was extensive and took nearly three years to recover. Conversely a six year old patient with fewer injuries took just a few months to complete his care. Patients are welcome to choose the level of recovery they wish to pursue.
