The Pettibon System®

The Pettibon Institute is a non-profit organization founded in 1981, by Burl Pettibon. The exercises prescribed by the Pettibon System® are designed to supplement the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustments.  The weights and braces that correct bad postural habits of the spine are the world’s only patented non-surgical spinal correction equipment.     

Before beginning this treatment, patients are taken through diagnostic tests to determine if the system will benefit them.  Those who qualify are taught how to maintain correct spine and posture health with home exercises and personalized home therapy equipment.   Before treatment, patients perform warm up and stretching exercises.  Pettibon rehabilitation therapy greatly speeds up recovery time and assists in correcting spinal curves and posture. 

To determine if you’re a candidate for the Pettibon System®, talk to a chiropractor in your area.
