"Health comes from within, not from a bottle." It is with this statement—emblazoned on his practice's website—that Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Aldridge sums up his medical philosophy. The bottle refers not only to medication, but also to invasive procedures prescribed for ailments that Dr. Aldridge believes chiropractic care is better suited to treat. Chiropractic medicine seeks to restore the body to its highest functioning state, with the belief that in this state, the body's ability to self-heal is strong enough to eliminate a number of afflictions. Through diagnosing and correcting blockages and misalignments in the body's nervous system and spinal cord, Dr. Aldridge seeks to relieve patients of a host of maladies, including chronic headaches, allergies, and painful bouts of human origami.
After graduating from Brigham Young University and Cleveland Chiropractic College, Dr. Aldridge spent nearly a decade practicing in Virginia before he and his wife relocated their family of four sons, one daughter, and one wisecracking alien to Lehi. His new practice affords patients parallel care in both chiropractics and massage therapy. The two fields share a holistic approach to treating health issues, and massage therapy further complements chiropractics by working to improve circulation, relieve tension, and reduce toxins in the body.
Whether traditional or technological, all the techniques used by Doctor of Chiropractic Garrett Peterson of Utah Sports & Family Chiropractic are drug-free and noninvasive. Cold-laser therapy and ultrasound waves expedite the healing process for soft-tissue injuries without breaking the skin. Tried-and-true chiropractic adjustments trigger the body's self-healing properties by shifting disks away from the spinal cord, where an impingement can lead to chronic pain and a host of bodily ailments.
A graduate of massage and chiropractic school, Dr. Jared Mangum now tends to spines and posterior muscles with services that draw on his medical knowledge and nimble fingers. Guided by cutting-edge research conducted by his peers and at his own evidence-based practice, Dr. Magnum tailors massages to focus on individual aches and pains. His signature cocktail of deep-tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point modalities keeps stressors guessing as he surrounds them on all sides with plentiful soft-tissue work.
Though Dr. Mangum certainly counts relaxation among his many goals, one would be mistaken to think of A Balanced Life Chiropractic as simply a spa. The center earns the final word of its name from a suite of medically oriented therapies that address chronic spinal conditions. Chiropractic adjustments and flexion-distraction treatments, among others, aim to neutralize ailments caused by accrued tension or winters spent on iceberg-riddled waterbeds. While the doctor arrives at a diagnosis, staffers ask that you help yourself to the office’s WiFi and a complimentary beverage.
Although Dr. Jeffrey Jensen practices the full range of chiropractic, he specializes in the Upper Cervical part of the spine: the neck. He recognizes this region as the source of many of the most common health concerns, such as headaches and migraines, vertigo, neck pain, and even lower-back pain. Using the Blair Technique, he carefully investigates the intricate workings of the neck and administers gentle adjustments to free up kinked muscles and align vertebrae.
Licensed chiropractor Dr. Brad Hendricks is a firm believer that the spine and the nerves surrounding it can dramatically affect your health. At his offices inside New Horizon Medical, he see patients for a range of ailments, from migraines to carpal tunnel syndrome and injuries caused by trying to massage one's own back. After an initial exam, he zeroes in on the root of pain and discomfort while treating the body as whole instead of just treating the symptoms.
