It is a great technique for those patients who desire the positive benefits of acupuncture but who are not interested in the utilization of needles. Dr. Aaron has successfully used Meridian Dynamics to help bolster his patients’ immune systems during the cold, flu and allergy seasons.

It was the Chiropractic Biophysics technique that made the most profound difference in Dr. Aaron’s life as both Dr. and patient.
Dr. Aaron uses CBP as his foundation for the analysis and correction of any biomechanical and/or postural problems. He finds it incredibly effective for those patients who have suffered any type of trauma, from whiplash accidents to contact sport injuries. Dr. Aaron also uses CBP postural exercises and cervical traction techniques when treating patients with scoliosis as well as those who have de-conditioned their bodies by spending too many hours at a computer desk
