Don’t Take Arthritis Lying Down!

August 1, 2015, 7:03 pm

Years ago, doctors hardly ever told arthritis patients to “go take a hike” or “go for a swim.” Arthritis was considered an inherent part of the aging process and a signal to a patient that it’s time to slow down. But not so anymore, recent research and clinical findings show that there is much more to life for arthritis patients than the traditional recommendation of bed rest and drug therapy.

It helps maintain healthy and strong muscles, joint mobility, flexibility, endurance, and helps control weight.  Rest, on the other hand, helps to decrease active joint inflammation, pain, and fatigue. For best results, arthritis patients need a good balance between the two: more rest during the active phase of arthritis, and more exercise during remission.  During acute systematic flares or local joint flares, patients should put joints gently through their full range of motion once a day, with periods of rest.  To see how much rest is best during flares, patients should talk to their health care providers.

Headaches Do NOT Have to Be Part of Your Normal Life!

July 28, 2015, 7:37 pm

Headaches are common, NOT normal.  And because they are so common, many people think that getting a headache is just a normal part of life!  It doesn’t have to be……

Headaches are most often a sign that something is not right in your body.  There are many types of headaches and many things can cause headaches such as: stress, hormones, certain foods, preservatives, alcohol, and toxic fumes, just to name a few.  A frequent and overlooked cause of headaches is the malfunction of spinal bones in the neck and upper back…bones being out of alignment.  This can affect the nerves and blood vessels to the head.  When nerves and surrounding tissues are stretched or irritated because of misalignment, they can produce painful headaches.  Medications may cover up the pain, but do not correct the underlying structural cause.

Many people find relief and correction with chiropractic care.  The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture headache, woman in painTherapy has helped many people get drug-free results, drastically reducing or totally eliminating patient’s headaches!  Some estimates suggest that 25% of the population has a headache right now…are you one of them?

Low Back Pain…..Affecting Your Daily Life?

July 21, 2015, 1:18 pm

Low pack pain imageLow Back Pain results in millions of dollars of lost work and untold suffering every day.  Many factors can be responsible for Low Pack Pain.  Improper sitting or lifting, over-exertion, sleeping on a mattress too firm or too soft, stress, trauma, or even inherited spinal abnormalities can be the cause. Many research studies have shown that chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than back surgery.  The simplicity and success of chiropractic adjustments has helped many patients avoid risky surgery….no drugs, nothing invasive, just pain relief.

One of our South Jordan patients writes, “I am a nurse and after a 12-hour shift at the hospital I would literally leave, get in my car, and would cry because of pain in my lower back.  After a couple of months of seeing Dr. Burrup that was no longer the case.  I can now work a 12-hour shift and have minimal to NO pain by the end of the day.  This has all happened with four months of treatments.  I feel Dr. Burrup has saved my life so to speak, because without his help, I know without a doubt I would have had to quit my job and take an early retirement, which would have been disastrous for me and my family.  I had seen five or six chiropractors before Dr. Burrup and none of them helped me.  I will keep seeing Dr. Burrup to keep me going for years to come.  This is the best I have felt in years!” –LH

Auto Accidents 101

July 17, 2015, 6:12 pm

Chiropractic, acupuncture, and other holistic therapies can have a tremendous effect on pain management and restoring mobility after an accident.  The sooner you see a chiropractor after a car accident the faster the healing process occurs. Whiplash, woman holding neck

 

Even a minor auto accident can lead to chronic pain and health problems.  If you, a friend, or a loved one has been involved in an automobile accident, here’s what you should know about your health.

 

  1. Even a minor car accident can cause injury.  Never assume that you are not injured just because there is little or no damage to your car.  Seek professional care immediately.
  2. The most common auto accident injury is whiplash.  Muscle aches, soreness, headaches and other symptoms associated with whiplash may not show up until 24-72 hours after the accident.   The sooner you seek treatment, the less likely it will be that you will have severe pain or permanent damage.
  3. Studies show that ICE applied immediately to the injured area will help keep swelling and pain to a minimum.

 

Pain is a protective mechanism that indicates an underlying injury or trauma to the tissue. Pain-killers only mask the sensation of pain without correcting the underlying cause.  Auto injuries limit mobility and physical independence due to pain. A delay in identifying the actual cause of pain can increase the risk of inflammation, disc degeneration, muscle atrophy and other complications. Consequently, this delays healing and also leads to stiffness, limited range of motion, and other related issues with mobility.  A chiropractor can address and treat these problems.

 

Dr. Trent Burrup is a chiropractor who provides auto injury treatments in Salt Lake City and surrounding areas including West Jordan, South Jordan, Sandy, Draper, Taylorsville, Murray, Riverton, Herriman, Bluffdale, Cottonwood Heights, Holiday, Millcreek, West Valley City, and South Salt Lake.  We also provide service to patients that come from the Utah County area and as far north as Logan, and even some from out of state…come experience the difference at The Institute!

Homeopathy 101

July 13, 2015, 5:05 pm

Dr. Trent Burrup is a specialist in the use of homeopathic remedies to treat a wide variety of conditions such as allergies, hormone imbalances, digestive problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, colds and flus, etc.  Homeopathy activates the body’s self-healing processes in both the physical and mental/emotional areas. The range of problems in which homeopathic remedies can be used is extensive and includes first aid, acute illnesses, and all manner of chronic conditions.Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a natural pharmaceutical science that uses very small or infinitesimal doses of substances from all three realms of nature – plant, mineral and animal. These activate the body’s nervous system to initiate the healing response and cure disease naturally, gently and promptly.

The speed of results from a Homeopathic Remedy can vary widely, depending on whether the illness is acute or chronic and what the underlying cause of the condition is.  In acute illnesses, the appropriate remedy can act within minutes. It is commonplace to see a child who is screaming out in pain with an earache, drop off to sleep in one or two minutes after a dose of the appropriate remedy. Though astounding improvements often take place, instant improvements do not occur in chronic or long-term conditions. Improvements for chronic conditions usually take a few weeks, and may take as long as 1 to 2 months for noticeable improvement in some cases.

Detoxification…The Natural Approach

June 19, 2015, 4:53 pm

The body has natural built-in methods of ridding itself of toxins and waste products.  We are exposed to toxins and create waste products within our bodies on a Food and herbal supplement image for Individual Page on Detoxificationdaily basis.  If the body’s natural detoxification systems are not working very well, these same toxins and pollutants can build up over time.  Some toxins come from external sources like air and water pollution, and chemicals and preservatives in the food we eat, while others are the natural result of bodily functions that must be excreted from the body.  If the body is unable to rid itself of these poisons due to poor function or to toxic overload, this can lead to inflammation, pain, and numerous disease processes.

At the Institute of Chiropractic & Acupuncture Therapy we specialize in various ways of assisting the body in ridding itself of toxins.  Some of these include nutritional and dietary programs that feed the body the necessary nutrients it has been deprived of, and that will get the liver and kidneys functioning properly again to filter poisons out of the body.  Others are more specific and involve Computerized Health Analysis to find what specific toxins are creating problems (heavy metals, chemicals, parasites and other infections like viruses and bacteria).  Through the computer testing we can then identify specific homeopathic remedies, herbs, and nutritional supplements needed to facilitate the detoxification process.

There are many different detoxification “cleanses” out there, and while many are beneficial, some of them can be very stressful on the body.  Our goal at The Institute is to find and address what each individual’s needs are, and what a person is able to handle or tolerate without creating too much stress or other problems in the detoxification process.

We provide service to all areas of the Salt Lake Valley including West Jordan, South Jordan, Sandy, and Draper. We also have clients that come from as far as Utah County, Logan, and even some from out of state.  Come experience the difference at The Institute!
