How to Choose a Chiropractor

BYU ChiropractorThe real trick to finding a BYU chiropractor is finding a professional that you can trust. A visit with a chiropractor requires extensive amounts of physical contact, and that can feel invasive when you don’t have the right chiropractor. When you feel like your personal space has been invaded then you get stressed, and that added stress will only tighten your muscles more and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. In order to get the most benefit out of your chiropractic appointment you need to find a chiropractor that you trust both medically and personally.

Finding a chiropractor that you can trust medically is a matter of choosing someone with a good reputation. Chiropractors are one of those types of medical professionals that people like to talk about. You can ask your friends and family about the chiropractors they have visited and find out whom they would recommend. These former patients might prefer a certain chiropractor because they have a masseuse on staff, or because the appointments are always short, or because they have the latest technology at their disposal, or simply because they solved a problem that no one else was able to solve. You can weigh these different benefits and determine which ones matter most to you in choosing a chiropractor.

Once you have established that your potential chiropractor has the medical qualifications that you are looking for, you need to find someone you are comfortable visiting. Locate a chiropractor who not only has an office that you feel comfortable being in, but a staff that you feel comfortable being around. Chiropractors must touch your skin and manipulate your body, and you don’t want to be touched by a chiropractor who makes you uncomfortable. It only takes one untoward comment or one inappropriate look to be permanently uncomfortable in a chiropractor’s office. The discomfort that comes when you don’t trust a BYU chiropractor makes your medical problem worse.

The best combination of medical skill and comfortable personalities comes from Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson at Camp4 Human Performance. Together they have years of experience tending to sports injuries as the BYU chiropractor, and that experience is utilized to help you get better. At the same time they provide a friendly and comfortable environment where your own relaxation can add to the treatment they offer. They have a long history of not only helping their patients get well, but treating them with respect while they do so. Call (801) 829-9500 to find out more!

How can a Sports Chiropractor benefit you?

BYU ChiropractorHow important is chiropractic care to athletes?  So important that most college and professional football, baseball and basketball programs have full-time chiropractic staff working with other medical professionals to care for their athletes.  At Camp4 Human Performance in Taylorsville, UT, our chiropractors, Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson, work, not only with patients who have non-sports-related injuries, but with all of the athletic programs at Brigham Young University.  Why is a BYU chiropractor a great medical professional to have helping you?

 A chiropractor who works with athletes has likely seen almost every kind of musculoskeletal and nervous system injury a human can sustain.  From back and neck injuries to pulled muscles, sprains and strains, the injuries incurred by athletes are the same kinds of injuries non-athletes can sustain through accidents or overuse of muscles and joints.  This knowledge and experience enables him to find the source of the pain or injury faster and to be more accurate in his diagnosis.

➤  A BYU chiropractor has more experience with different kinds of treatment options like Class IV laser therapy to reduce inflammation, vibration therapy for accelerated injury recovery, performance taping to aid in rehabilitation and pain reduction and nutritional counseling to help with weight loss and increasing energy and vitality.  Chiropractors who don’t work with athletes sometimes limit patients to just a few treatment options and are not as likely to know about cutting edge treatments and technologies.

➤  A chiropractor who works with athletes knows the importance of preventing injuries and re-injuries. He can counsel patients on how to avoid straining joints and muscles at work and in any other physical activities, including jogging and sports – as well as teaching them corrective exercises to prevent injuries.  He will also know how important ongoing adjustments and massage therapy are to maintaining physical balance that can prevent injuries from happening or recurring.

A BYU chiropractor must remain abreast of the latest research and treatment innovations in order keep the athletes he works with in top shape and to help them prevent injuries.  This expertise and commitment to continuing education can benefit you, too, even if you aren’t a top athlete.  If you’re experiencing pain from an accident, injury or for any other reason, choose Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson for your treatment.  Dr. Laney Nelson has been part of the chiropractic team at BYU since the 1980s and was the first chiropractor to work for the university.  Dr. Tyler Nelson is also one of the chiropractors working with athletes at BYU.  To schedule an appointment, call us at Camp4 Human Performance at (801) 829-9500.

Improving College Athletics with a Chiropractor

 

BYU chiropractor

BYU chiropractor

College athletes have a lot on their plates. They often feel stress and pressure coming from countless sources, including stress, physical exertion, and expectation from coaches and fans. How do they stay healthy, fit, and relaxed? They have a chiropractor, strength coaches, physical therapists, and doctors they work with around the clock.

Why Do College Athletes Need Chiropractors?

College athletes are prone to injuries and misalignments because of the intensity of their sports. Soccer players, cross country stars, and weightlifters alike all are susceptible to stiff and sore muscles. That is where having a chiropractor like Dr. Tyler Nelson and Dr. Laney Nelson come in.

Injuries

Sports injuries are not ideal by any means, but they are common. Having doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors nearby to call in these events is absolutely vital.  athletes and coaches know exactly who to call if injuries do occur.

Many injuries can be improved with proper chiropractic care. Adjusting and realigning displaced joints can help ease the pain. Some injuries require several chiropractic appointments, and others do not.

Aside from adjustments, chiropractors can also offer other therapies to injured athletes. These may include muscle stem therapy, massage therapy, acupressure, and other healing therapies.

Soreness or Stiffness

It is very common for athletes to be stiff or sore after a big game or training session. Back to back practices and competitive games can result in serious physical exertion, and sometimes exertion turns into stiff or sore muscles.

Massage Therapy

Most athletes get massages on a regular basis. Stress from life and from sports can all stay in the body. For some people, stress is all held in the neck and head. For others, it’s in the shoulders or back. Wherever a student athlete carries his or her stress, it can be alleviated with regular massage therapy sessions.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage can be incredibly healing for athletes. The massage therapist focuses an entire session on (usually 60-90 minutes) on a particular area of the athlete’s body.  For soccer players, it may be a deep tissue massage of the legs. For a volleyball player, it may be the neck, shoulders, and upper back areas. Deep tissue massage is beneficial in breaking up scar tissue and preventing further damage. It can be painful to massage injured areas, but it is also very healing.

Foam Rolling

Foam rollers are a popular tool used by most college athletes. Coaches, trainers, and even chiropractors may suggest athletes use a foam roller to decrease stiffness and ease tight and tense muscles. The roller can’t replace a massage, but it is a good for regular stretching. Student athletes may choose to use foam rollers at home or at the gym after a training session to loosen stiff muscles and decrease tension.

The benefit of having a chiropractor is that they are there to support the school’s student athletes. They keep them healthy and happy by providing expert healing therapies. These doctors have been working with student athletes for years, and they continue to help athletes in any way they can.

Athletes are People Too

BYU ChiropractorAthletes can appear superhuman with their extraordinary physical abilities–track and cross country runners can endure velocity and distance like the speed of light; swimmers are probably growing gills with their impeccable ability to exist under water for extended periods of time; tennis players can potentially break concrete with a ball and raquet. Despite their robust physical facade, athletes are human too. They’re capable of physical injuries because the human body can only endure so much and has a breaking point–but rest assured that your Chiropractor is here to help. Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson has worked with all the athletic programs at BYU. Dr. Laney Nelson, the first BYU Chiropractor, has been excelling at his job since the 80s.

What you may not know about Athletes and Chiropractic

BYU ChiropractorWhether you participate in sports or not, when you have an injury that leaves you with chronic pain, you know that chiropractic can help.  But did you know that even young, healthy athletes benefit from the help of a chiropractor?  Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson of Camp4 Human Performance work with all of the athletic programs at BYU; in fact, Dr. Laney Nelson was the first chiropractor to work in the BYU athletics department and has been there since the 1980s.  Both doctors know that athletes can’t perform to their maximum abilities without the help of a chiropractor.

Although we think of young, strong athletes as being impervious to injuries and pain, they aren’t.  In fact, the body takes a lot of punishment in most sports.  Football players, runners, soccer players, wrestlers and other athletes are prone to many types of injuries including:

▪ Strains and sprains.   Acute sports injuries, like broken bones, do happen but the majority of sports-related injuries occur in muscles, tendons and ligaments.  When a joint is twisted or overextended leading to tearing of muscles or tendons, it’s called a ‘strain.’  When ligaments are torn, it’s called a ‘sprain.’  Ankles, knees and even the vertebrae of the spine can be injured by tearing.

▪ Tendinosis.   Tendinosis or tendinitis occurs when a joint is overused and can result in pain and dysfunction.  The tendon becomes inflamed from repetitive use.  Rotator cuffs in baseball pitchers can become inflamed as can the elbows of golfers and tennis players.

▪ Stress fractures.   Stress fractures are also called fatigue fractures and they happen when an abnormal amount of stress is placed on a bone.  This can happen to runners who accelerate their training too quickly.  Another form of stress fracture is shin splints, which are microfractures on the front surface of the shin bone.

A chiropractor can not only treat athletes who’ve suffered performance-related injuries, they can also help to prevent injuries.  Pre-emptive manipulation and adjustment of the spine can help athletes to maintain their spinal alignment and balance, which means they’ll be less likely to injure themselves.  But sports chiropractors don’t just manipulate or ‘crack’ spines, they also work with muscles.  Using techniques like myofascial release, positional release, Graston and more, they can reduce tightness in muscles and improve blood flow, which leads to better performance.

If you are an athlete and you want to get yourself in top condition before you compete, or you’ve suffered a sports-related injury and you need help, call us at Camp4 Human Performance at (801) 829-9500.  You can also visit us at www.camp4chiropractic.com to find out more about the services we provide.

6 Things you may not know about Chiropractics

Taylorsville UT ChiropractorsTaylorsville UT chiropractors can help you with many of your medical complaints using a variety of tools and techniques.  If you don’t know a lot about chiropractors and what they do, you should know that their main goal is to relieve your pain and to restore your range-of-motion so that you can function and enjoy your life.  But that’s not all you should know about Taylorsville UT chiropractors and chiropractic treatment.  Here are 10 things you should keep in mind about chiropractic and your body:

1.  Chiropractic goes beyond treating pain.   Pain is simply the end result of months- or even years-long muscular or skeletal dysfunction.  When you go to traditional medical doctors, they will prescribe pain killers regardless of whether or not they can diagnose the cause of your pain.  Unfortunately, pain killers simply mask a problem that will persist until it’s treated.  Chiropractic can treat the root cause of pain.

2.  Your bodily functions and malfunctions originate at your spine.   Every system in your body is connected through the nerve system that emanates from your spinal cord. When transmission from these nerves to your intestines or your brain or your toes is disrupted because the surrounding spinal column isn’t moving correctly, you can experience problems in places on your body that you may not think have anything to do with your spine.

3.  Athletes use chiropractic to perform better.   While athletes see chiropractors to treat injuries, they also use chiropractic treatment to prevent injuries because chiropractors are movement specialists.  They can also help to speed recovery from an injury and improve balance and coordination.

4.  You play an important role in healing.   Taylorsville UT chiropractors can only do their jobs; they can’t do yours.  If you’ve been treated by a chiropractor, chances are that he’s given you exercises to do or a diet to follow to help maintain a healthy, more functional body.  And because many physical ailments that chiropractors treat are the end result of months or years of dysfunction, it’s very easy for you and your body to fall back into the habits that contributed to your problems in the first place.

5.  You won’t have to see your chiropractor indefinitely.   Even though adjustments and many other chiropractic treatments will make you feel great, you likely won’t want to have to schedule appointments for them for the rest of your life.  This is a common myth.  Your chiropractor wants to treat the problem you present to him.  That can mean a few visits for initial treatments and then occasional visits in the future to check on your condition.

6.  Chiropractic adjustments don’t hurt.   They just sound like they should.  The cracking or popping sound that an adjustment of your neck or back makes is the result of gasses being released from the joint capsule.  The anticipation of pain is what causes the most anxiety in new patients; but the adjustment itself is just a quick, direct thrust to a specific spinal bone.

If you’re experiencing chronic pain or difficulty moving, call one of the best Taylorsville UT chiropractors, Camp4 Human Performance at (801) 829-9500 or visit www.camp4chiropractic.com to schedule an appointment.  Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson work with all of the athletic programs at BYU – Dr. Laney Nelson has been with BYU since the 1980s and was the first chiropractor to work with their athletes.

Choose your Chiropractor Wisely

Taylorsville UT ChiropractorsIf you’re trying to choose among Taylorsville UT chiropractors, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you and provides the kinds of services you need.  Like every other kind of medical service, the place to start is with your health insurance.  If your health insurance covers chiropractic treatment, they will have a list of chiropractors in your area to choose from.  Armed with that list, you can ask your friends, family, coworkers and your family physician if they have any recommendations.  If you get more than one recommendation for a particular chiropractor, chances are that person is competent and reliable.

Bear in mind that all of the Taylorsville UT chiropractors are different, not only in the way they approach chiropractic care but in the types of services they offer.  So, it’s important that you visit the office of any doctor you’re considering – with or without recommendations from others – to find out more about them.  When you make a personal visit to the doctor’s office before you make and keep your first appointment for a diagnosis, you’ll be able to get a general feeling for the professionalism, courtesy and competence of his staff.  You can ask which types of services the doctor offers and what his training is.

Many people feel uncomfortable asking in-depth questions but a good chiropractor won’t be bothered by questions; in fact, he will even encourage them so that you are completely informed before you start any kind of treatment.  You may end up interviewing several chiropractors before you choose one who’s a good fit for you; but since you are seeking medical treatment from someone who may end up manipulating your spine, being picky is a wise move.

The most important things you need to know, in addition to whether or not he accepts your medical insurance, are how he will diagnose your medical problems, if he offers more than one type of chiropractic technique and if he’ll tell you upfront how many procedures he’ll have to perform to get the desired results.  In fact, this is one of the red flags of chiropractic treatment – doctors who tell you that they recommend a long-term treatment plan of sometimes 6 months to a year, during which you must see them a set number of times per month.  Good Taylorsville UT chiropractors are usually able to get good results for you in much less time than that.

If you’re ready to get help for your aching back, call us at Camp4 Human Performance at (801) 829-9500.  Our doctors come with the highest recommendation – Dr. Laney Nelson and Dr. Tyler Nelson are trusted by and work with all of the athletic programs at BYU and Dr. Laney Nelson was the first chiropractor to work for the university.  You can find out more about both doctors at www.camp4chiropractic.com.
