  Title A systematic review of CBP® methods applied to reduce lateral thoracic translation (pseudo-scoliosis) postures
Journal J Contemp Chiropr. 2022 ;5(1):13-18
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Systematic Review

Objective: To characterize the evidence of CBP® technique methods in the reduction of lateral thoracic (pseudo-scoliosis) translation postures and its effect on pain, disability and quality of life.

Methods: The CBP NonProfit website as well as Pubmed and Index to Chiropractic literature were searched for clinical studies on the reduction of lateral thoracic translation postures by CBP methods.

Results: One clinical trial and 6 case reports were located. The trial showed an 8mm reduction after an average of 36 treatments over 11.5 weeks in 63 chronic low back pain patients with a 2-point drop in pain rating versus no spine or pain rating changes in 23 untreated controls. Six case reports showed an average reduction of 23mm after 33 treatments over 3.7 months with an average 4-point drop in pain rating. The cases also documented improvements in various functional, disability and quality of life measures.

Conclusion: There is a limited but evolving evidence-base supporting the unique mirror image® approach to reducing lateral thoracic translation postures by CBP technique methods that has impacts on pain, disability and quality of life.
