I wanted to offer exercises that were set up in a structured, professional manner. I feel my patients will be more compliant with these exercises. I expect to see longer-lasting and better results, especially because any exercise regime that is cut down to just a couple minutes a day is very appealing.
Living in a large city, people complain that they don't have the time, and it has to be easy. The simplicity of these exercises is the key.

Chiropractic is a foreign concept in Italy. Currently, there are only 200-300 chiropractors in the entire nation. A term frequently used along with rehab in Italy is ‘gimnastica postural.’ Italians take pride in their looks, so, naturally posture is a source of interest in the Italian community. Specializing in posture allows us to make the connection for the Italians between posture and chiropractic.

Dr. Weiniger's posture certification program has been vital in the development of our new practice. CPEP is a reproducible, specific program that I can incorporate immediately – it filled a huge void coming out of school. The Posture Principles provide a baseline to work off of with every single patient. With every new patient exam, we'll do posture pictures, and we're building a posture rehab exercise room.
Posture exercise is great for dancers. Dancers are known for their balance, though they notoriously train on one leg more than the other, leading to asymmetry.
I plan to educate the dance community about the importance of taking care of their bodies.
CPEP Posture Certification training is all about providing long-term health solutions. Posture exercise is easy to incorporate, and people can see the benefits as you document their posture improvement. It all boils down to this: You train your body, and it will change. That's what we do as dancers; that's what we do every day. Posture is a huge issue, and people don't realize it.

Across the board, the number one comment I get is that their balance has improved. I get extremely high compliance. I am amazed to see most people, even the ones who are physically challenged, are able to show dramatic improvement.
This is phenomenal because balance and falls are the biggest issue for the maturing population.
The CPEP posture certification protocols apply to every practice. Everybody should be incorporating it, regardless of the population they treat – hunchbacks or supermoms or seniors losing their vitality as their posture deteriorates – this will help them maintain the active lifestyles they want. Some will be motivated by “carrots” of posture’s benefits, or scared by the seriousness of consequence. Some are motivated by pain relief and less visits to doctor. No matter the reason, posture is critical to our lives, and that’s why I am a huge proponent of the program.

Dr. Weiniger offers perspectives that I haven't seen. The merging of information and how it all fits together and intersects drew me in.
The CPEP program and Dr. Weiniger's teachings confirm to me that posture is all very neurologically based, and the protocol, if we can redirect the attention of the client to focus on the details of their alignment and motion, and to perform the exercise with perfection and increasing strength, creates positive and lasting changes in the posture.
If you are working with the human body, you must consider better posture as a goal. Pain relief is great, yet it is still a symptom that is speaking to us - are we hearing/understanding the source of the problem? The two factors that make movement of the body possible are mobility and stability. We who have been doing mobility work must understand that it is only half of the picture.
The StrongPosture protocols are the perfect tool for stabilizing the spine and the core while teaching patterns of motion to train whole body control. Every person doing mobility work probably knows this intuitively, but perhaps has not fully embraced its importance to human movement and wellness.

I continue to be blown away that you guys have literally created an entire niche in an already existing profession. That fundamental fact is probably easy for you to forget -- but relish in it once in a while because it really is HUGE!
I just finished the required webinars. Good stuff! I also heard the one on the new iphone app and it's really cool! I sent an email thanking all of you for literally creating an entire profession of posture experts!

I feel that my CPEP training is ideal for the corporate setting. You have to get people moving, and show them the importance of good posture and alignment for everyday living. I love that my job helps people to feel and function better. I don't see the need for proper bio-mechanics changing anytime soon, as our society continues to round forward with excessive computer technology.
Medtronic is very wellness-oriented. Their employee wellness initiatives include healthy, fresh cafeteria fare, sponsored 5K and marathon events, and free fitness classes and health coaching. Out of 3500 employees in my building alone, 1750 are currently enrolled in the fitness program.

The ease of the program was important. We already offer rehab at the office, and it's nice to have another tool that we can implement with what we're already doing.
The StrongPosture exercises are something everyone should be doing.

Upon researching posture certification programs, I found the BodyZone CPEP posture certification program.
I use a gentle, holistic manual release technique to treat patients, which works seamlessly with StrongPosture principles. My whole brand focuses on postural assessment, which helps to determine a patients' wellness path. I take into account the patients’ entire history, including major trauma, emotional challenges, and current pain issues, and then treat with a combination of soft tissue work and StrongPosture exercises to align their bodies and keep them where they need to be to prevent further pain and injury.
The CPEP posture certification program was the 'missing link.' It ties in nicely with everything I offer at my practice.
The body has a unique way of healing itself if we just listen. That's what I love about the CPEP certification exercises: I am giving my patients one to two things to leave with, which means they are more apt to follow through with exercises and to retain and apply the knowledge I am providing.
Every person that comes into my practice has a complaint about posture. Once they start doing the exercises, they can tell a difference in their problem areas. One young woman recently told me that she was breathing better!
Overall, my patients are in less pain, they're sleeping better, feeling well, and taking the initiative to change their lifestyles.
I currently work with patients largely on a one-on-one basis. However, I plan to provide CPEP StrongPosture Exercise classes for different demographics in my community, including a children's posture bootcamp, and corporate wellness workshops.
This is what I love. The whole CPEP experience has been an 'ah-ha!' moment for me; it's like I am falling into exactly what I was always meant to do.

We’ve never been a 'pain practice.' Ours is a subluxation, holistic-focused practice and we believe strongly in patient education. My goal is to empower every patient to control their own health.
We begin by addressing all facets of health: attitude, nutrition, proper rest, posture, exercise and chiropractic.
We strive to provide a level of service that separates us from other offices. We know by staying on the cutting edge, we can provide the most optimal form of health care possible. Over the years we have provided treatment through the use of Spinal manipulation, Traction, Physiotherapy modalities, Soft tissue massage therapy, Nutrition Counseling, VAXD therapy and Spinal Rehabilitation Programs.
We found the most inconsistency with setting up the Rehab Program. In many cases, we found that there was a lack of both interest and accountability from our patients.
This is why the CPEP certification program was right for us. It provided a foundation that is easy for our patients to understand and enjoyable for them to do!
All of my team is involved with the posture exercises. The CPEP program fits right in with our practice. The information and packages provided in the Strong Posture program make it easy to use.
The CPEP program and PostureZone.com provided the tools to tie together all these things we have been working toward – it has created a foundation to work with patient goals and helps us to be consistent.
Our four docs and athletic trainer work together as a team. We also have another team member working toward earning CPEP Certification.
The missing part of most chiro offices is posture exercise. Patients want to be active. Brand new patients often ask, 'What exercises can I do?' The challenge is having a program laid out to establish consistency and proper accountability. Now that we've committed 100% to becoming a Posture Practice, people are really excited about doing the exercises. They see benefit to improving the framework of their body and are benefiting daily from the results of the posture program.
The CPEP protocols have helped us to develop a system to move patients from passive phases of pain management treatment to active phases of healthcare. Patients see that even after they are feeling better, it is essential to maintain proper posture, alignment, balance and motion.
