What Makes Aspen Falls Different?
It is our system. We offer an integrated approach of healthcare and a system of chiropractic, chiropractic treatment and massage to ensure a broad health foundation approach and emphasize the vital role of exercise and proper diet and nutrition. We focus on the complete healing processes that bring long term results! We don’t just treat a few symptoms — we search for the underlying cause of your pain and discomfort first so you can get lasting results.
Is Ongoing Chiropractic In-Office Care Always Necessary?
The hands-on nature of the chiropractic treatment is essentially what requires patients to visit the chiropractor a number of times. To be treated by the chiropractors here at Aspen Falls, a patient needs to be in the office. In contrast, a course of treatment from medical doctors often involves a pre-established plan that is conducted at home (i.e. taking a course of antibiotics once a day for a couple of weeks).
Our team of doctors and staff often provides acute, chronic, and/or preventive care thus making a number of return visits sometimes necessary. Our doctors will inform you of what you can expect in terms of the extent of treatment recommended and how long you can expect it to last.
How Many Times Do I Need to Come in?
It’s based on your specific situation, how quickly you heal, your age and other factors. Multiple factors cause us to decide on a case-by-case basis. We only treat until you are well and back to feeling great again.
We strive to end treatment as early as we can. Diligence with your recommended at-home exercise programs will help you heal quicker and can often reduce the number of times you see us in the office. Once you can perform functional movement and you are healthy, we make sure you are prepared to continue healing. We give you all the skills you need to keep a strong, healthy body.
Will It Hurt?
Our chiropractors never push past the point of your comfort level. They consider your pain levels and will never take you past what you feel you can handle. You, the patient, determine it.
We balance the need to treat and the comfort level. We constantly evaluate your balance point. We gently push for the breakthrough in the healing process, but never past your ability.
How Should I Dress?
Please wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing so you can have a full exam and we can do stretches and movements to aid in your healing.
Why Don’t I Just Go to a ‘Real’ Doctor?
First of all, a chiropractor is a REAL doctor. Chiropractors complete the same number of clinical hours and complete the same amount of classroom hours. There is a difference in their pharmacology classes; instead of a focus on prescribing drugs, they learn more about anatomy and physiology.
They replace a ‘residency’ with a ‘preceptorship’ where they do part of their schooling in a clinical setting. Traditional medical doctors usually have only two treatment options, they prescribe medicine or they refer you out to a specialist for a test.
Will You Accept My Insurance?
Yes, most likely. We are a contracted provider for many insurance companies: specifically, those most common in the state of Utah. For a complete list of insurances companies we are contracted with, please visit our new patients section.
How Long Can I Expect My Appointment to Last?
Initial consultations can range from thirty minutes to one hour. Established patient visits, depending on treatment required, can range from thirty minutes to an hour and a half.
What Additional Services Does Aspen Falls Offer?
We have Massage Therapy and chiropractic treatment for those who may need more help with performing their exercises and movements. We also have pillows, tens units, and nutrional supplements.
When Should I See a Chiropractor?
It is a good idea to see the doctor for any injury, ache, or ongoing pain you may be experiencing. Regular visits can also help restore the body’s proper alignment that can “get off’ with regular daily activities. You can learn preventative maintenance and exercise plans that are often very beneficial and are highly recommended. Regular check-ups are advised, frequency depends on your age, activity level, pain level, and flexibility.
What Are Some of the Common Conditions We Treat?
- Neck pain
- Sprained ankles
- Muscle spasms
- Back pain
- Knee problems
- Shoulder pain
Is Chiropractic Care Helpful in Pregnancy?
Yes. During prenatal care we can make sure the pelvis is aligned, so you are ready for delivery. We can teach you certain effective stretches to make your delivery process easier and faster. The added hormones of pregnancy loosens your ligaments and causes your own biomechanics to be ‘off’ so rehabilitating the pelvis and pelvic floor helps with back pain and sciatica.
We recommend that you come in at the start of your 2nd trimester. Postnatal care should begin around 6-8 weeks after birth. Babies can be treated after the birthing process.
Are There People with Particular Jobs that Can Be Helped?
People who experience pain from sitting at desk jobs or standing all day long can find great relief. If your mobility is limited or you tend to have repetitive movements, you can receive great help. Don’t live with it. Come see us today and let’s discuss your situation and how you can make the best of it.
