Co-Management With PostureWorks
PostureWorks has an established and growing reputation within the surrounding medical community as a reliable and beneficial co-managing partner.
Our goal is to support your diagnosis and treatment while complimenting it with our own approach when appropriate.
Objective measures of posture, spinal structure and biomechanics are taken before and after treatment interventions to provide evidence-based comparison reports.
Each PostureWorks care plan is prescribed with painstaking detail and is unique to the individual patient’s structural weakness or injury.
Control measures including, daily pre-shift and post-shift communications, semi-weekly case management meetings and consistent re-evaluations are in place to safeguard our processes and maximize patient outcomes.
Diagnostic reports are provided following the initial evaluation and comparison reports are provided post interventions. Summary and progress reports may be requested at any time.
Non Surgical providers should consider PostureWorks co-management when:
- A Patient is Not Responding to Care as Expected
- When Structural Health is Not a Focus of the Providers Care
Co-management with PostureWorks will benefit patients suffering with:
- Musculoskeletal Pain Syndromes
- Neuromuscular Complications
- Motor Vehicle Collision Injuries
- Unexplained Visceral
Surgical Providers should consider PostureWorks Co-Management when:
- A Patient is Deemed to Not be a Surgical Candidate
- Pre-Surgical Sagittal or Coronal Presentation Predicts Poor Surgical Outcomes
Co-management with PostureWorks for Perioperative care:
- Preoperative “Pre-habilitation” to reduce fibrosis, increase flexibility, and improve sagittal curvature and coronal balance
- Postoperative Rehabilitation to minimize fibrosis, speed healing times, correct remaining postural distortions, and improve sagittal curvatures and coronal balance.
There are multiple Controlled Trials documenting our ability to improve sagittal and coronal plane profiles:
1. The efficacy of lumbar extension traction for sagittal alignment in mechanical low back pain: A randomized trial. Click Here
2. Lumbar lordosis rehabilitation for pain and lumbar segmental motion in chronic mechanical low back pain: a randomized trial. Click Here
3. Increasing the cervical lordosis with chiropractic biophysics seated combined extension-compression and transverse load cervical traction with cervical manipulation: nonrandomized clinical control trial. Click Here
There are multiple studies showing that sagittal balance predicts long term surgical outcomes:
1. Postoperative cervical sagittal imbalance negatively affects outcomes after surgery for cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Click Here
2. The impact of standing regional cervical sagittal alignment on outcomes in posterior cervical fusion surgery. Click Here

The doctors at PostureWorks practice the postdoctoral specialty Chiropractic BioPhysics, which is an evidence based and research driven technique for advanced diagnostics and treatment interventions.
The Technique Consists of Two Arms
Chiropractic BioPhysics Seminars is the post doctoral education program for which both PostureWorks co-founders Dr. Jason Miller and Dr. Scott Levin serve as instructors. This true postdoctoral program consists of a general and an advanced certification series.
Chiropractic BioPhysics Non-Profit is our research arm, which has published more than 150 peer reviewed publications to date, constituting the largest volume of research put forth by any one chiropractic group. Dr. Deed Harrison, the techniques lead instructor and researcher, is the most published chiropractor in history and currently serves as a manuscript reviewer for several of the top orthopedic journals in the world including; Spine, Clinical BioMechanics, Clinical Anatomy and The European Spine Journal.
Chiropractic BioPhysics has helped patients with:
• Back and Neck Pain
• Headache / Migraines
• Postural Deformities
• Shoulder Pain
• TMJD Trouble
• Trouble Sleeping
• Low Metabolism
• High Blood Pressure
• Acid Reflux / GERD
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Frozen Shoulder
• Disc Herniation

Leaders in the Field
The PostureWorks Co-Founders, Drs. Jason Miller and Scott Levin, serve as Instructors for Chiropractic BioPhysics Seminars, and Dr. Miller serves as a board member for CBP NonProfit Research. PostureWorks is not only sought out by patients looking to receive the best treatment possible but by students and doctors competing for spots in the PostureWorks Preceptor and Residency Programs.
