Spinal Decompression

Don’t deal with the irritating pain of a disc injury. Disc problems in the low back can cause pain that can radiate into the legs, thighs, and feet. Disc problems in the neck can cause radiation of pain into the arms and hands. No one should have to live with that.

Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical procedure that has high success. A pumping action of this special type of traction helps the disc draw in more nutrients, and reduce the amount of disc protrusion. The disc protrusion is what put irritating pressure on the nerve, causing the symptoms.

Remember, the discs have a very poor blood supply. They are dependent on movement to help “pump” nutrients into the disc to keep it healthy. This same pumping action is achieved by spinal decompression. You feel more relaxed, and get proper nutrients to the injured area.

A therapy session usually lasts about 20 minutes, 3 times a week for up to 6-8 weeks. Most feel pain relief within 6 visits. We also provide other therapies to help decrease muscle spasm and inflammation. Enhance the condition of your discs today. Regular home exercise can help with strengthening and maintaining optimal spinal health once the disc has improved.

Corrective Traction

Mirror image traction is a proven method used to achieve adaptation of posture. It consists of placing the body in the mirror image, or opposite posture seen on x-ray evaluation, and applying stretching forces in the right place to achieve correction.

This allows the spine and it’s supportive tissues ( ligaments, muscles, tendons) to adapt over time, allowing the spine to achieve a corrected alignment and maintain it over time. Many published studies by Chiropractic Biophysics have shown the efficacy of this novel treatment approach.

It has been shown to be highly effective in treating chronic pain and new injuries that cause postural changes, like car accidents. This goes beyond the typical chiropractic adjustment, and actually accomplishes measurable change noted on follow up x-rays.” Combined with adjustments and exercise, effective treatment of many spinal conditions is attained.

Incredible Facility

Dr. Gary Lee is the only chiropractor in Utah specializing in scoliosis care through the ScoliBrace, and one of only a handful specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics. Dr. Gary truly cares about his patients’ overall health and long-term wellness goals. He utilizes the latest in CBP technique to pinpoint the root cause of pain and discomfort, and fixes it from the source. That means no more nagging headaches, migraines, back or neck pain, or even acid reflux or asthma! Incredible facility that you HAVE to visit.

Great Experience

The only thing I can say it’s a great place to work and finally I can see that a doctor really cares about his patients.

Samantha Gonzalez S

Thank You Dr Lee

Dr. Lee gave me back the life I wanted to live. Debilitating neck and back pain kept me from being active, doing triathlons and sometimes even going to work. With Dr. Lee’s Chiropractic Biophysics methods my lower spine is straight and the pain is complete gone. I am back to competing in triathlons. My depression symptoms are again under control and I have the energy to make the most of the weekends. I can’t thank Dr. Lee enough!

No Pain

I am so glad that I found Dr. Gary Lee and Elevation Health. I’ve been suffering from migraines and low back pain for as long as I can remember, and thought it was something I would have to live with. Every Doctor I’ve ever been to has prescribed meds but no cure. Since I’ve been under care with Dr. Lee, my headaches have gone away, and I’ve regained mobility in my low back, where previously I could not sit for longer than short periods of time without pain! He was highly knowledgeable, friendly, and actually LISTENED to what I had to say vs rushing me out of the office with a little white piece of paper and an assignment to go to Rite Aid to get some drugs. I would highly recommend without reservation. He was referred by my co-worker, and I wish I would have listened sooner! Thank you!

Intersegmental Traction

Using the body’s weight as rollers move up and down the spine, intersegmental traction induces passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments while increasing flexibility and mobility of the spine.

It also facilitates muscle relaxation to help reduce muscle spasms and helps to break up scar tissue. Discs are dependent on movement for circulation, intersegmental traction is a great way to reduce stress to the discs caused by injury, daily activities, or degenerative changes.

The patient will lay face up on a table while rollers inside the table will move up and down the spine at an intensity tolerable and comfortable to the patient. A treatment will usually last 10-15 minutes.
