Utah Chiropractor: Exam Area 2

Gunn Chiropractic is focused on bringing the latest researched proven techniques to our clinic. The treatments that we have available are especially focused on helping those with active lifestyles. Chiropractic has long been associated with some of the greatest sports figures out there. A few of the techniques that we utilize in our office are Graston, Pettibon, and Diversified Chiropractic manipulation for the spine and extremities. We also have a licensed Massage Therapist on staff that is certified in many different techniques that will add to your chiropractic experience. Not only are these techniques very effective, but also the tests we use to figure out what’s going on and what treatments to use are just as effective.

Sports Therapy Methods from a Provo Chiropractor

Graston® is another soft tissue technique that has been proven to get great results with acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. So effective, it is used by almost every professional and collegiate team out there including the Utah Jazz, BYU, University of Utah, and UVU. It consists of applying a smooth lotion over the treatment area, and running a metal tool over the area to help breakdown scar tissue and adhesions and promote proper healing at the effected area. Most regular everyday people will gather these micro-scars and adhesions throughout their lives and not even know it.

Pettibon® is a complete treatment that focuses on restoring the proper spinal curves and treating the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, not just the issues with the bone. Pettibon is effective in helping relieve the pressure on the spinal cord and nerves by helping restore the posture back to its natural state. Pettibon is utilized and is a part of every patient’s treatment, not just those with sport injuries.
