Headaches—pain in the head—can be both symptom and cause. It is crucial to understand the source of a headache in order to know how to treat it. Headaches can be caused by injuries such as whiplash, TMJ dysfunction, or concussion, just to name a few. Migraines are a type of headache that are often more prolonged and more severe. Sometimes accompanied by visual phenomena such as seeing spots, migraines are not well understood.
Concussions are the result of trauma injuries to the brain. Often caused by falling or by sports-related injury, concussions can affect brain function. Though symptoms do not always begin immediately after an accident, they can be extensive, including headaches, blurred vision, vertigo, nausea, amnesia, or seizures. If you experience a head injury, seek care immediately to know the best treatments to rest your brain.
Your cervical spine, usually called your neck, includes the first seven vertebrae in your spine. Pain in your neck may be caused by nerve compression, muscle strain, or even chronic disease. Neck pain can be treated once the cause has been discovered. Our clinic has massage, laser, and rehabilitation exercise treatments available for neck pain or neck injuries.
From burning pain in the upper back to incapacitating pain at the base of the spine, Utah Sports and Wellness is here to help. From rib fracture to spondylolisthesis, from strain to chronic ache, we know how to treat the bones and muscles in your back to help you stand tall again.
Injury to the shoulder joint can cause lack of motion and pain. At Utah Sports and Wellness, we focus on treating the connective tissues, which can be damaged in cases of frozen shoulder, AC separation, tendonitis, and more. If your shoulder is injured during game play, let our chiropractic team help.
The elbow is a hinge joint where the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna in the forearm meet, and the wrist is made of the radius and ulna and eight little carpal bones. Agitation of either joint can lead to common conditions like tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as problems further down the line like trigger finger.
Many injuries to the hip present similar symptoms, so it is important to have a proper diagnosis to know how best to treat hip pain. Once a diagnosis is made, our chiropractors at Utah Sports and Wellness will create a treatment plan with rehabilitation exercise methods tailored specifically to you.
If you have experienced a torn hamstring in the course of athletic training or sciatica pain that persists aggressively, you know that leg pain is not always something you can or should just walk off. While icing and rest can provide relief, customized rehabilitation exercises can work magic on injuries when recovering from leg pain.
The intricate nature of the knee can leave it vulnerable to injury. The bones of the knee joint can fracture, the muscles can strain, and the soft tissues can become inflamed. Come see us at Utah Sports and Wellness to diagnose and treat knee pain or to ease recovery after knee surgery.

Spine pain can be caused by many things, scoliosis and degenerative disc disease or other disc problems being just a few. Our chiropractors specialize in aligning the spine for optimal holistic health.
