We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
It is important to understand that often times where the pain presents is not the area that needs to be treated. The pain may be due to that area compensating and being over-worked from another area not pulling its weight. Our rehabilitation program includes strength, flexibility and agility training as well as training focused on coordination of body parts and motion to prepare the individual to return to full participation.
Spinal alignment, balance, coordination, and proper musculoskeletal function all start with having strong and flexible feet. With 26 bones and a network of ligaments and muscles, the feet are an important and often overlooked, part of well-being. They truly are your foundation for healthy living.
At Utah Injury Clinic in Murray, our chiropractors create treatment plans that start from the ground up. After looking closely at your alignment and how you use your feet, we might prescribe custom foot orthotics to help you retrain your body. When fitted properly by a trained professional, these custom insoles can improve posture, enhance athletic performance, and reduce pain.

HOW FEET SHOULD WORK IN MURRAY
Understanding treatment starts with learning about how your foot is supposed to work on a biomechanical level. When walking normally, your foot should hit the ground first and fatty tissue beneath the heel bone should absorb most of the impact. Next, as the foot rolls forward on the outside edge, your plantar fascia should stretch out. The plantar fascia is the connective tissue between the heel and the ball of the foot. Once this fascia is stretched, the weight moves to the ball of the foot and toes so you can push off to propel yourself forward. Full flexibility is important, as is regular weight distribution. Without proper alignment, you could start having problems throughout your body.
In an arch up position, which occurs when you push off from the toe, the foot acts as a rigid, stabilizing lever. If the foot doesn’t reach the correct raised arch position, you can’t propel yourself forward effectively. Over time, this can cause bunions, plantar fasciitis (inflammation in the mass of fibers between the heel and ball of the foot), fallen arches, and metatarsal (pain in the ball of the foot).
When your arch up is correct, your weight will be distributed through strong muscles in the feet and legs rather than falling on the bone structure itself.
In arch down position, which occurs when the weight is on the heel, your feet need to absorb shock and adjust to varying terrains. If your arch down is less than ideal, you could have problems with your ankles, knees, and tendons because small muscles will absorb all the shock.
HOW CAN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS IN MURRY HELP?
Whether your foot problems were caused by an injury, genetics, poorly fitting shoes, or excessive weight, correcting the issue may be as simple as having the right kind of support. Our chiropractors will watch how you walk, note how your feet are aligned relative to your spine, look at the wear patterns on your shoes, and examine your muscles. Then, we will create a customized plan to get you back on track.
We can create custom orthotics for each foot, taking into account things such as injuries and differences in leg length. Our treatment plans include structural integration therapy, and we will educate you throughout the process. Our orthotics are about much more than providing cushioning they actually change the posture and function of your feet.
The cost for custom-made orthotics is initially greater than the cost for over-the-counter orthotics, but our solutions last up to 10 years and are made specifically for your body.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
Ultrasound therapy is a chiropractic treatment used to help reduce muscle pain and increase range of motion. By using sound waves, we are able to stimulate deep inside the tissue. This minimizes stiffness, swelling, and pain while also promoting circulation, and pain-free movement.
Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, more and more parents are seeing the many benefits of their children seeing a chiropractor every single day. Some of the benefits are improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function. Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.
Here at Utah Injury Clinic, we offer a conservative approach to treating pregnant women. Our prenatal care is gentle and safe. We aim to alleviate the stress and strains of pregnancy while improving comfort for both the mother and baby. We understand the physical changes that come with pregnancy, and we offer relief without using any drugs.
Electrotherapy is an alternative pain management treatment option that involves the use of mild electromagnetic pulses to provide relief for the patient. This treatment option can dull pain, repair tissue, strengthen muscles, and even improve your blood circulation.
Noninvasive Surgery and Interventional Pain Management
Back Pain, Interventional Pain Management Treatments and car crash recovery.
For back pain sufferers, interventional pain management combined with Chiropractic and Physical Therapy techniques can be particularly useful. At Utah Injury Clinic we approach each person individually. Everyone has different needs and goals for recovery. After a car crash you can find comfort in the team of physicians at UIC.
– Epidural injections (in all areas of the spine): the use of anesthetic and steroid medications injected into the epidural space to relieve pain or diagnose a specific condition.
– Nerve, root, and medial branch blocks: injections done to determine if a specific spinal nerve root is the source of pain. Blocks also can be used to reduce inflammation and pain.
– Facet joint injections: an injection used to determine if the facet joints are the source of pain. These injections can also provide pain relief.
– Discography: an “inside” look into the discs to determine if they are the source of a patient’s pain. This procedure involves the use of a dye that is injected into a disc and then examined using x-ray or CT Scan.
– Pulsed Radiofrequency Neurotomy (PRFN): a minimally invasive procedure that disables spinal nerves and prevents them from transmitting pain signals to the brain.
– Rhizotomy: a procedure in which pain signals are “turned off” through the use of heated electrodes that are applied to specific nerves that carry pain signals to the brain.
– Spinal cord stimulation: the use of electrical impulses that are used to block pain from being perceived in the brain.
– Percutaneous Discectomy/Nucleoplasty: a procedure in which tissue is removed from the disc in order to decompress and relieve pressure.
Interventional pain management at Utah Injury Clinic often include other treatments such as Chiropractic, physical therapy, Massage therapy. Our physicians and therapists work together to help assist in the healing process.
Pain from a car accident can occur immediately following the accident or may not manifest for a few hours, or even days and up to months after the accident.
If you have been involved in a minor car accident or a major catastrophic crash, the day after the accident your entire body could feel stiff and sore. This is your body telling you to come to Utah Injury Clinic in Murray Utah. We will help diagnose and treat the injuries caused from the crash.
X-RAYS, MRIS, & CAT SCANS
Specific, highly accurate x-rays of the painful areas of your back are taken to check for ligamentous injuries and fractures. Measurements recommended by the American Medical Association – AMA Translation Method – or Penning Method are made. These unique and very accurate methods are used to determine the extent of ligament damage you may have received. Depending on my findings, I may call for an MRI, CAT Scan, Motion Imaging, or another imaging study of your back to further assess your injuries.

Interferential therapy is a non-invasive treatment that aids in pain relief and promotes soft tissue healing by using tiny amounts of electrical impulses. These impulses deliver a continuous stimulation deep into the affected tissue. Interferential therapy prompts your body to use endorphins and other natural painkillers to help relieve your pain.
At Utah Injury Clinic we enjoy getting to the root of your injury and are proud to work with the residents in Utah. We are always ready to answer your questions before, during, or after treatment. We want you to feel completely comfortable when you are in our care.
If you have any questions regarding interferential therapy or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (801) 747-2886.
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
