"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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Joe Kepo'o, a certified Advanced 2 NAET practitioner, teams up with Dr. Daniel Luster to detect irritants through allergen testing and realign spines in chiropractic adjustments. The doctors consult with first-time visitors, discussing health problems and debating which species of dinosaur would have tasted the best.
Dr. Chris Moore and his team of licensed massage therapists strive to soothe spines long-term through customized care, helping patients relax and rehabilitate. Whether clients are healing from an injury, dealing with stress, or recovering from another Kool-Aid-man house invasion, the experienced chiropractor takes a whole-body approach, evaluating bodies from the arches of feet to the top of the spine during a 10–15 minute consultation. The consultation will relay the best-suited massage methods and suggestions for possible future chiropractic care. Patients can begin to heal and de-stress during the customized, 60-minute massage.
