CBP General Certification

The 7 courses are post-graduate courses and cover approximately 90 hours of credits that are approved across a spectrum of continuing education categories.


  1. Basics of CBP: Radiographic & Postural Protocols
  2. Mirror Image Drop Table Adjusting: Leg Length Inequality & Orthotics
  3. Mirror Image Instrument Adjusting & Upper Cervical Analysis
  4. Structural Rehabilitation of the Cervical Spine
  5. Structural Rehabilitation of the Lumbar Spine
  6. Structural Rehabilitation of the Thoracic Spine & Case Management

  • Module 4. Cervical Rehab
  • Module 5. Lumbar Rehab

Once the above 7 certification seminar requirements are met, the Chiropractor will be required to sit and pass a test of CBP theoretical and practical application. The test consists of written questions, X-Ray analysis, postural analysis, and clinical intervention.

  1. Sit for an informal test consisting of 45 multiple choice questions and analyze/measure an X-Ray line drawing view.
  2. Perform a series of ‘mock’ Mirror Image adjustments using a handheld instrument and/or the drop table.

NOTE: General Certification Tests will only be offered at specific technique seminars. The Chiropractor must call in advance to register for the test at (208) 939-0301.
