Posture Corrective Chiropractic

Chiropractic research has been progressing by leaps and bounds, and I saw that by combining my 20 Years of extensive clinical chiropractic experience with modern evidence based posture corrective chiropractic techniques I could start to make a real difference for my patients. The technique is called Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP). It is the most advanced, comprehensive scientific approach to chiropractic services. It is a proven technique which corrects and restores normal structural alignment of the spine. CBP is supported by more research in the top peer reviewed scientific (medical) journals in the world, than any other chiropractic technique. We already know for over 100 years that chiropractic treatments work, but to bring to the next level with CBP (the Posture Correcting Technique), providing predictable results for our patients is a game changer in chiropractic healthcare. This is the new standard in corrective chiropractic care.

Our strategy focuses around posture and a research based “Ideal Model” of how the human spinal column is structurally aligned. We start with a thorough examination of your underlying skeletal structure. We do this with the most complete posture examination available. From multi view digital pictures of your posture, to digital x rays, to the software powering these procedures to the research dictating the analysis of these to provide the most accurate biomechanical interpretation of the human spinal column. Once the why is identified, the focus turns toward designing an individualized treatment path. These carefully planned series of procedures will include adjustments, personal exercises, and potentially a spinal remodeling program to help you live a happier, healthier, pain free life. We do this by performing all the procedures through a system called Mirror Image. Mirror Image® is a term describing the principle behind Chiropractic BioPhysics®. CBP is a systematic protocol that provides proven methods with the intention to bring the spine back to the normal or ideal model of how it should look like and function. Mirror Image exercise, adjustments and traction is what we do to the affected region(s).

DRX9000, it’s a wonderful machine. Really helped by back! The DRX9000 are a god send. People here are great. Consider it if you have any back problems. I have 5 herniated discs in my lumbar. I am 90%.

Sharon

Picking up my shoes off the floor was a big thing…just get up and just walk it’s like a toddler walking for the first time…Little things but BIG stuff for me… I can’t say enough…how I feel so much better.

Sharon

How does it feel?

Wonderful. I love how it stretches me stretches me and makes me feel comfortable, better than my bed… Prior to this treatment mornings were my worse. When I get up I can just get up and move. It’s a breathe of fresh air, feel like I have more energy.

Walter

thank you for helping to reduce, and at times, alleviate, my back pain with the chiropractic intervention you gave me over the three sessions… For my sleep apnea, the acupuncture was very successful. I sleep better now and feel rested plus it appears to have improved my foot neuropathy. I actually have feels again in my toes!

Chester

I tried all of the tactics, stretching, yoga and all that and none of it was working… I haven’t really dealt with meds, worrying about toxicity… I went with acupuncture, and in just one visit, my pain was gone… and I keep coming back and it’s better and better.

Matt

2nd visit in, I feel great… I feel relaxed… a lot better…

Paul

Being my very first time I can honestly say Valerie and Dr. Koppel were both amazing! I felt very comfortable from the beginning. I had 32 needles placed in various areas and not one hurt. Most I didn’t even feel as they were placed. Before he finished placing them I had already begun getting very relaxed. By the time he was finished I was pretty much asleep yet aware. The 45 minutes that passed until he removed them felt like 20 minutes. I had to take my time getting off the table. I was that relaxed. Driving home I was much more patient with traffic, could breathe thru my nose easier, my daily craving for fast food was gone. Today, the day after, I even cooked for myself; scallops and flash cooked power greens in coconut oil with spices. I already have my 2nd appointment set up for next week and look forward to it! Thank you Valerie and Dr. Koppel for an amazing experience!

Dr Koppel and Valerie,

Dr Koppel and Valerie,
It is with sincere thanks in writing testimonial that I
express my deep level of gratitude, mere words cannot express the difference you made to my life. I came into your office a broken shell of a person, and you spent a lot of time and energy healing me, in effect “giving me my life back”
I’m humbled and appreciative for all you’ve done on my behalf. I will never forget what you have done, I’m wearing the smile you gave back to me.
A heartfelt thank you for everything that you’ve done to give my health back to me- You are a gift to my life, and I will treasure you both always.
yours truly,
Sharon Chronis
On April 1 2017 I was stopped at a red traffic light, and hit from behind by someone who was texting and driving and never hit her brakes. After the EMT’s and Police left, I made an appointment the same day with Dr Koppel at Chiroacuhealth, had x-rays, and light treatment, I had injuries to my neck, shoulder, torso and hip. My neck had severe whiplash, and from being tossed front to back on initial impact, I lost the curve in my neck, and sustained 2 herniated discs and 2 bulging discs effecting my neck & torso. Upon impact of the accident, my head was turned to the right side ( I must have been looking at the radio) so my head was permanently turned to the right side which was another necessary correction.
Symptoms experienced from day one were: from 1st day- I had mental break down- crying every 60 minutes over a period of 2 days, and At times constantly thirsty, and at times it feels like my brain shakes I was unable to sleep still due to severe pain in my neck, as well and shoulders, chest, and arms. I also had numbness and weakness in my arms and fingers, I experienced left hip and left leg pain, low back pain. My muscles in my neck and shoulders feel achy, hard or knotted up. I have constant Pain, My neck is stiff, and have constant headaches at the base of the skull that radiate towards the forehead I have Loss of mobility and loss of range of motion in my left arm. I am dropping things with my hands. I have confusion, and no concentration, or ability to retain information or process my thoughts at times, I was constantly tired, but cannot sleep thru the night. .. I would lose my balance while standing up and then righting myself. Difficulty with driving turning head. ( holding steering wheel ) I was extremely Limited as to effect day to day activities of showering, getting dressed, ( not doing any cooking or cleaning, laundry, or daily chores such as shopping or driving, as ( holding steering wheel with both hands was impossible ) cannot go to a hairdresser, or dentist because of my neck & shoulder pain My Husband helps do all the daily chores that I could no longer do ( for months) I noticed difficulty sitting ( head & neck get tired)… I was mostly laying down every day. I had an MRI, and saw a neurologist who suggested I would be a very good candidate for surgery, We decided on an alternative course of treatment – “Posture Correction”. and we started traction in-office at Dr Koppel’s office which gave immediate relief. I made consistent progress, and posture corrective treatment gave me hope to have pain relief and increase mobility ( which was immediate) and I am happy to say they gave me my life back. I was always an active person, and it was both depressing and debilitating to go thru these severe injuries. Thank you for saving my life, I am back to work, and happy, I have my active life again- paddle-boarding, yoga, working out at the gym, riding my bike, swimming, and walking the beach. ….. happy to add -I sleep thru the night- pain free. I will always have a special place in my heart for ChiroAcuHealth!
sincerely,

Mirror Imaging

Mirror Image® is a term describing the principle behind Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP. Is a systematic protocol that provides proven methods with the intention to bring the spine back to the normal or ideal model of how it should look like and function. Mirror Image exercise, adjustments and traction is what we do to the affected region(s). What do you mean by that? Good question, let me explain it.

Your posture or structural alignment is evaluated by viewing the spine from the front to back and from the side. In these two views we can see the positioning of the spine in relation to what it should normally be. Once the abnormal positioning is identified we provide our proven techniques to restore the natural alignment of the spinal column. Mirror Imaging the body’s reflection of our skeletal system is what we do through the exercises, adjustments, and traction which we call spinal remodeling. For example one of the most common abnormal yet typical posture presents in the older generation. This is the individual who is hunched over pushing their head forward past the rest of the body and looking down. This positioning puts extensive abnormal stress and tension on the spinal cord, nerves, discs and bones of the spine. This is not good and most likely could’ve been avoided. Mirror Imaging is exactly how it sounds, we will literally force the spine in the opposite direction over time to restore this posture back to where it should be or close to it. This is a core principle of CBP and Posture Correcting Chiropractic, and it works!

Treatment Protocol

Unless the patient is a child or has recently been injured, most of us have had our abnormal postural displacements for years and sometimes decades. Research has demonstrated that in order to see appreciable corrections, treatment must be performed for a minimum of 36 visits that could be performed 3 times per week for 12 weeks or 4 times per week for 9 weeks. A mini re-evaluation is performed every 12 visits and continued or changed protocol is confirmed. Re-X rays are performed at or around the 36 visit mark and comparison is made from original X rays. Depending on the specifics of the condition and the chronicity play a major factor in determining if the patient needs another round of 36 visits.

Once the patient is stable at an acceptable percentage of correction then the patients is done with corrective care and is welcomed to a maintenance program. At this point Maintenance could fluctuate from 1 to several times a month. Also supportive traction may or may not be necessary at that time. All this will be determined during your active course of corrective care and based on your condition. It’s really that simple.

So before we get started in all this, the first thing is to see if I am a healthcare match for you. These posture corrective programs take dedication, determination and time on your part. I take what I do seriously and will only work with patients that feel the same way about their health, for this reason I do not accept all patients. I love what I do and take pride in staying up on the latest research and methods through CBP to provide to the people in my community of Naples FL. and Bonita Springs FL. Posture Correcting Chiropractic, the new standard in chiropractic healthcare.
