Syringomyelia, Arnold-Chiari malformation and Spinal Manipulation.

Syringomyelia is a disorder in which a cyst forms within the spinal cord, and Arnold Chiari malformations are structural defects that result in the cerebellum and brain stem being pushed downward into the spinal column. Past research has reported that these conditions may be considered contraindications for spinal manipulation. However, a recent case study found skilled spinal manipulation to be both safe and effective in the treatment of an 18-year-old women with both of the above mentioned conditions who suffered from neck and left arm pain after a motor vehicle accident. After four treatments in two weeks, she was asymptomatic, which continued […]

Carpal tunnel almost cost me my profession.

Brittany C. was in a car accident and as a result developed carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands.  This made work very difficult as her job requires the use of small instruments. Brittany was being treated by another chiropractor who though it wise to ad the use of homeopathic injections in her wrists to help her to heal. After a few weeks, her symptoms were gone and she is able to work without the pain and tingling.  If you have been in a car accident, or are suffering with carpal tunnel symptoms, give us a call at 801-955-1555 to schedule […]

As we enter this winter season, we will no doubt see many car accidents.  Many will be somewhat minor in terms of vehicle damage.  Do not let the minimal vehicle damage fool you.  In an accident, your body can experience tremendous “G” forces in a manner of a fraction of a second, and this can cause damage that if not immediately, will eventually be debilitating. Learn more about the hidden injuries sustained in car accidents.  Call for a free brochure, 801-955-1555.  Or you could just come in for a free consultation.  Call today, and either way get the information that […]

Is your chiropractor an expensive aspirin?

Most people seek chiropractic care when they have pain.  Yes, I said “most”, because, believe it or not, there are people who see a chiropractor on a regular basis regardless of the presence or absence of pain. Pain is nothing more than a symptom, but we are programmed in our society to focus on the symptom.  This is the medical model, and because insurance companies are owned and operated by medical doctors, it is the insurance model.  If you do not have symptoms, you do not need care.  If you do have symptoms, than care should be focused on getting rid […]

Maybe it “WON’T” go away!

Often people come in to my office after suffering with a particular pain for months.  They usually make the statement that they kept telling themselves that “maybe it will go away.”  I had one patient recently that had suffered for 20 years with low back pain, all the while telling himself that it might go away.  Common sense should tell us that a problem will not go away until what is causing the problem goes away. We pride ourselves on finding the cause and correcting that.  This allows the body to heal itself, and when the cause is gone, the […]
