Definition of Manual Therapy

Spinal correction therapy called Chiropractic is widely used by doctors in the United States, Canada and Australia.
In South Korea, it is called Chuna therapy. The treatment effects can vary significantly depending on the surgeon's skill and expertise. If incorrectly done, serious nerve damage may occur so the therapy should be done by a specialist with expertise.

Spine Treatment checks the abnormality of the joints and skeletal system through radiation screening, restores the changed pelvis to its original position in order to relieve the pain and corrects the posture in order to enable the most ideal distribution of body weight ergonomically. So you can get both pain regulation and the regulation of body shape.
A fusion between recently emerging brain research and chiropractic is chiropractic neurology. Chiropractic neurology controls the sensory receptors properly, improves the function of the brain using the action of the left and right brain as well as the static organ and the cerebellum and thus has a big effect on rehabilitation therapies for spinal disease and stroke, circulatory diseases such as heart disease and hypertension and symptoms of unknown origin such as gastric atony, chronic digestive problems, bladder disorders, sexual dysfunction, headaches and ataxia.

Biomechanic Therapy

Treatment methods for spinal disorders can be divided into physical therapy and surgical therapy. However, Biomechanic spine therapy is a Spine Treatment therapy used as part of non-surgical manipulation before surgical therapy.
Biomechanic Spine therapy is a neuro-control medicine for treating the spine and consists of non-surgical surgeries based on biomechanics (three-dimensional radiography and diagnosis, recurrence prevention and exercise prescription therapy and clinical nutrition therapy). Rather than simply removing the pain, biomechanic spine therapy treats the skeletal system, nervous system and muscles comprehensively, prevents recurrence and helps form a balanced body shape. The therapy is accompanied by conventional physical therapy and exercise therapy to treat from the cervical spine(the neck bone) to the entire spine.

Step 1:Pain Treatment→Step 2:Spine Structure Treatment→Step 3:Spine Structure Maintenance Treatment→Step 4:Exercise therapy & Recurrence Prevention

The therapy is conducted in four steps. Spinal disorders (Disc herniation, Degenerative Spondylosis, Spondylolysis, Spondylolisthesis, Scoliosis, etc.) are treated with non-surgical therapies, Manual therapy of biomechanics correction and Exercise therapy.

What is Done at the Biomechanic Spine Manual Therapy Room?

Straight spine care: Management program for those who suffer from weak waists

For those who are suffering from a weak back or experience a recurrence of lumbar disc herniation after disc surgery, the root causes are analyzed with posture and the body shape's comprehensive analysis such as a three-dimensional computer analysis of posture, muscle strength measurement using a computer, measurement of spinal joint mobility using a computer, and a biomechanics special analysis. It is a special exercise program to correct posture and to strengthen the waist and to eliminate the root causes of the pain.

Neck and Shoulder Management: Program for those suffering from neck and shoulder discomfort

An unbalanced posture and poor habits including bending the head forward can cause tension of the muscles in the neck and shoulders and thus can cause symptoms, such as pain, chronic fatigue, eye strain, tension headaches,cervical disc herniation, arm and shoulder stiffness, shoulder aches, blurred vision, hearing loss, temporomandibular joint disorders (TJDs), insomnia, poor concentration, forgetfulness, dizziness, lethargy, nervousness, chest tightness, bad digestion and nausea.

The root causes shown through the analysis of body shape can be reduced with neck stretching, neck muscle strengthening exercises, neck correction exercises and posture correction training which can provide a follow-up solution.

Posture Control: Program for those who are suffering from abnormal posture

Because humans live upright, spine-related problems will exist forever regardless of age or gender. In order to minimize spine-related problems, the center of gravity needs to be properly distributed according to mechanical factors.
Bad posture such as a stooped posture, forward bent head posture and a biased posture can cause biased gravity which causes tired and stiff muscles and puts consequent pressure on the disc and joints. As a result, spinal problems arise such as back pain, disc disease, scoliosis, lumbar lordosis, thoracic kyphosis, neck and shoulder pain, chronic fatigue, posture imbalance, O-type and X-type legs.

The cause is mechanical stress. The human body has a structure that can distribute such stress mechanically. When viewed from the side, the spine has an "S" shape which can disperse mechanical stress efficiently.

When viewed from the front, the spine appears as straight with a balance between the left and right side. If the curves and lines are changed, the patient's own body weight significantly suppresses the body which leads to pain and subtle displacement of the spine. The displaced spine and weight and consequently stiffen muscles that suppress the nerves in or around the spine. The pressure causes greater pain and the pain causes greater pressure which leads to a vicious cycle.

An incorrect attitude and the wrong action may destroy the structure of the spine. Good posture is the basis of good health. Although there is no immediate pain, poor posture becomes problematic. If the pain has already started, the broken posture balance needs to be corrected and maintained in the order of pain treatment, rehabilitation, posture correction along with maintenance and exercise. The methods such as posture analysis to determine the cause, the correction of posture, proper exercise and stretching are applied to deal with the problems fundamentally and to support good posture.
