West Jordan Corrective Chiropractic
Misalignments in the back and neck put excessive pressure on the delicate nerves in and around the spine, causing nerve interference. Nerve interference not only creates pain, discomfort, and fatigue, but more importantly diminishes nerve energy from reaching your vital organs. This leads to disease and organ dysfunction. Corrective chiropractic care aims to realign the spine, and eliminate the SOURCE of your health problems!

The first step to resolving headaches is to properly identify the cause. Only then can the proper treatment be rendered. Headaches are varied and can be caused by multiple problems. Abnormal blood pressure and electrolyte imbalances are a common cause of Frontal and Temporal Headaches. Migraine Headaches can be caused by distress to vascular structures in the skull and brain. Tension headaches can be caused by muscular imbalances and structural degeneration of the cervical spine. The doctors at Midvalley Chiropractic Clinic have mastered techniques and treatments that encourage restoration of proper neck and spine function releasing tension that causes headaches and intense migraines.
Disc Bulge and Herniation
Discs do not randomly bulge without cause. Either a serious alarming event, rapidly applied force from a car accident to the disc, for example, causing it to fail immediately or the insistent stress of smaller yet exaggerated loads were constantly applied to the disc causing a gradual weakening creating a bulge in the disc. Spinal Discs are the cartilage cushions that separate the bones in the spine. When too much pressure is applied, the elements of stress and nerve exhaustion cause irritation to the discs. If the cause of the disc bulge is not addressed, usually a loss of spine curvature, the center of the disc will eventually break through causing herniation. This can create even worse pain, disability and permanent nerve damage. Dr. Dirk and Dr. Gordon have several methods of treating bulging discs and hernias. Specifically, they have; Decompression Treatments, Cold Laser Treatments, Exercise Rehab and Chiropractic Bio Physics protocols (For more information on these treatments, see Physiotherapy) designed to treat and prevent disc irritation.
The first thing to recognize about pain and the way you’re feeling is that even though it’s irritating, it is upfront and most certainly the problem. The pain you feel is your body trying to get your attention, notifying you that there’s something wrong and it needs to be addressed. Continually taking pain medications will only temporarily relieve you of pain and will only aggravate the problem. Instead of depending on the pills to relieve pain for a short amount of time, schedule an appointment to meet with the doctors to find a source of the pain and get started on the road to a permanent solution.
