The Chiropractic Legacy of Dr. Donald Harrison

Don Harrison

My dad, Dr. Donald Harrison, truly understood the importance of chiropractic care.

Ten years ago, my dad died due to complications from Type 2 Diabetes. He was 65. 

Today, his legacy lives on through Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP®) Technique (1980), with its Mirror Image® methods. The technique, which focuses on optimal posture and spinal alignment, has helped chiropractic patients all over the world.

As a younger man, my dad suffered from a back injury. He sought help, but standard medicine didn’t give him the relief he needed. He later found a chiropractor, who helped him recover.

He learned a lot from that experience. He wanted to show others their back pain was treatable—how chiropractic care had helped him. 

After being treated for back pain, Harrison attended Western States Chiropractic College, where he earned a degree in chiropractic care in 1979. 

In December 1980, the CBP technique was born. Donald Harrison was helped by his brother, Dr. Glenn Harrison, his late wife Dr. Deanne L.J. Harrison, current widow Dr. Sang Harrison, and Dr. Dan Murphy, a past business partner from a chiropractic business in Sunnyvale, California.

Donald Harrison and Sang Harrison moved to Evasnton, Wyoming, where they founded the Evanston Chiropractic Center in 1986. In 1993, they decided to concentrate on spinal research. Donald Harrison received his master’s degree in mechanical engineering and a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 1997 and 1998, respectively.

In 1982, Donald Harrison and his second wife Deanne Harrison founded the CBP research foundation to continue the advancement of chiropractic and spine sciences. Sang Harrison registered CBP Non-Profit, Inc., as a nonprofit in 1989.

Don Harrison and his colleagues published nearly 140 peer-reviewed spine and chiropractic research publications. They also funded many scholarships and donated chiropractic equipment to colleges and universities.

Additionally, Donald Harrison was a member of the board of directors of the International Chiropractic Association (ICA), served as president of the Wyoming Chiropractic Society in the late 1980s, and voted a member of the prestigious orthopedic research society: The International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS).
