What is Advanced Biostructural Correction™?
ADVANCED BIOSTRUCTURAL CORRECTION™ (ABC™) is a chiropractic technique that allows for full spinal
correction so the body can work the way it was designed to.
On this page are some before-and-after photos of practice members receiving ABC™,
some representative success stories, and a more detailed explanation of ABC™.
The results are often dramatic and they last. The spine is unlocked and a three-dimensional unwinding process takes place over days, weeks, and months. All structures from the skull to the toes are evaluated and aligned in ways that allow for the body to work as a single, synchronous functioning unit. The body unwinds and remodels to its optimal state.
One must feel it to believe it. You will feel the difference.
Practice members receiving ABC™ consistently report:
- Better posture and balance
- Feeling stronger
- Full breath and ease of movement
- Relief and recovery from old injuries and pains, no matter how longstanding (even our elderly practice members report this.)
For those of you who want additional information as to how ABC™ works, we have an excellent introductory video (30 minutes) available for viewing in our office, as well as several articles. We have gotten great results with patients with a variety of serious illnesses. It is our delight to be able to offer Advanced Biostructural Correction™ to you!
The series of images below show Dr. Pierre’s progression from before he started receiving ABC™ adjustments until January of 2003 (when this series was added to the website). From the series you can see the spinal unwinding process taking place. Over the period of about four months, Dr. Pierre’s height increased by 3/8″.
This young man’s spine had been twisted during a difficult birth, resulting in the situation you see in the first photo from age 8, when he first presented for ABC™ corrective care here. He went on to have a very healthy spine and become an elite athlete.
ADVANCED BIOSTRUCTURAL CORRECTION (ABC™): A state of the art system of analyzing and adjusting the spine and body that, over time, allows the body to unwind and recover from its previous injuries and distortions, and thus achieve its optimal, healthy state. This is achieved by:
1) First checking for and releasing tension in the meningeal system. The meninges are the tough, elastic coverings of the brain and spinal cord. Besides protecting the brain and spinal cord, they also act as an elastic stabilizer (like a big rubber band) running from the tailbone to the head to help hold the spine together. They should never be a problem, but in a spine that is partially stuck forward (see below), improper tension or fixation of the meninges can cause a misaligned vertebra to become locked out of position. Therefore, this must usually be addressed before the vertebrae can be easily moved into their correct positions.
2) Only adjusting those vertebrae and other bones that the body cannot retrieve or reposition on its own. In the spine, this means gently adjusting ONLY those vertebrae that have become stuck forward (anterior), because the body has no way of pulling them backward (posterior). Below the neck, we have no muscles that pull vertebrae backward, but we do have muscles pulling in the other directions. This sequence of procedures allows the spine to begin to unwind and uncoil like a big spring and correct itself as it has been trying to do since the original injury(ies).This is so even if the injury(ies) happened years or even decades in the past.
The entire spine, skull, ribcage, shoulders, pelvis, legs and feet work together as
a single, synchronous, functional unit.
The ABC™ protocol also corrects the forward spinal lean that has been pulling on the brainstem and spinal cord. Nervous tissue that has been under constant
mechanical tension is allowed to slacken, restoring normal nerve flow, often for the first time in many years.
[This accounts for much of ABC™’s health benefits for everyone.

The unwinding process is at times rapid and dramatic (and symptomatic). At other times, unwinding is slow and methodical, requiring numerous “nudges” by the chiropractor and causing the patient little discomfort. The pace of unwinding is controlled more by your body and what it can self-correct without help than by the doctor, but when your body needs the help, getting adjusted more often both speeds things up and makes the process much less symptomatic.

It is only a matter of time before ABC™ becomes the gold standard for structural healthcare because it is based on actual observations of how the physical body works.
