Start Your New Year With Better Health!

December 29, 2015, 5:30 pm

Now is the time that so many people set goals and resolutions for the New Year.  Give yourself the gift of health by eating better, exercising, lowering stress, getting enough sleep, and seeing your chiropractor.  Chiropractic can help prevent pain and dis-ease through spinal alignment, which allows all the nerves in the body to function properly.  This allows the immune system to fight off disease easier, the nerves to have enough nutrition and blood flow, which leads to every system and organ in the body being able to function better.  This leads to less pain, better immunity, and overall better health.

Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Many people come to see us because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments.  Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic:

Headaches                               Chronic Fatigue Syndromeadjhands

Back and neck pain                   Fibromyalgia

Auto injuries/whiplash               Hormone Imbalances

Sports Injuries                          Digestive issues

Depression                               Allergies

Arthritis

The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals.  If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other treatment, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, chiropractic can help you on the road back to better health!

Holiday STRESS Affecting Your Physical Health?

December 11, 2015, 8:52 pm

Stress has been with the human race since the beginning of time.  Today the stress of careers, deadlines, conflicts, holidays, and even family can take a huge tollheadache, woman in pain on our health.

Just as a chain tends to break at its weakest link, we seem to exhibit stress and strain in the weakest areas of our bodies.  For some, it’s an upset stomach.  For others, recurring headaches, back pain, or muscle stiffness.  Still others respond with nervous twitches, allergic reactions, or sensitivities to chemicals.  Regardless of your particular response, the function of the nervous system is involved.  That is why chiropractic can be so helpful.

The chiropractic approach to stress is to help normalize the function of your nervous system by removing interferences caused by subluxations (misalignments of the spine).  A chiropractor finds the “weak links” in your spine (the major communication pathway of your nervous system) and chiropractic adjustments restore better function, and can make a profound difference in your response to stress.  Many people see a chiropractor for wellness or maintenance care, which helps decrease physical responses to stress, and helps them emotionally deal with stress better because they are in a state of wellness.  The chiropractic lifestyle can play a big part in the role of decreasing the stresses of life.

It may not be possible to remove the stress from a busy life.  However, with the help a chiropractic physician you can respond better to the unique challenges you face!

The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture Therapy provides chiropractic and wellness care to patients in Salt Lake City and surrounding areas.  Located in West Jordan, we see patients from as far north as Logan, from Utah County, and some even travel for chiropractic care from out of state.  The goal of our chiropractor, Dr. Trent Burrup, is to help you get well and stay well.  Come experience the difference at the Institute!

Got Sciatica? We Can Help!

December 7, 2015, 2:05 pm

Sciatica describes persistent pain felt along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back, down through the buttock, and into the lower leg.  The Sciatic Nerve is the longest and widest nerve in the body.  Sciatic pain usually develops as a result of general wear and tear and use of the lower spine, not as a result of injury.

Low pack pain imageThe most common symptoms of sciatica are a shooting, tingling, burning, or aching sensation, typically on one side of the body that radiates down the path of the sciatic nerve.  Other symptoms may include numbness, tingling, or weakness of the affected leg or foot.  Sciatica can worsen after prolonged sitting, bending, or other sudden movements.

Chiropractic adjustments offer a non-invasive, drug-free treatment option for sciatica.  The goal of chiropractic treatment is to restore spinal movement, thereby improving function while decreasing pain and inflammation.  Depending on the cause of the sciatica, your chiropractor may also use ice/heat therapy, TENS, ultrasound, and rehabilitation exercises in addition to chiropractic adjustments in your treatment for sciatica.

While it is not always possible to prevent sciatica, here are some suggestions to improve spinal health and reduce the risk of sciatica:

  • Maintain a healthy diet and weight
  • Exercise regularly
  • Maintain proper posture
  • Use good body mechanics when lifting

 

The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture Therapy provides care for sciatica and many other conditions.  We provide service to patients in West Jordan and the Salt Lake City Metro area.  Come experience the difference at The Institute! (Photo courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net.)
