Dr. Harada provides Utah county with the best chiropractic care.
True Living Chiropractic usually fits each patient into one of three phases of care that is similar to the Dentistry care model. The three phases our office focuses on are: Relief, Correction or Wellness. This distinction of care makes it easier for patients to understand their course of treatment.
Get Relief from True Living Chiropractic
Our chiropractic office sees a lot of patients who have had their lives disrupted by injuries and pain. For patients who are suffering from pain, our main goal is to help our patients manage their pain. We help patients in this phase of care get out and stay out of pain. The approaches and techniques our office uses have had effective results, which get our patients out of pain and back into their regular lives. Usually, pain is the last symptom to appear and the first symptom to disappear. In 2009, chiropractic care was rated as the #1 preferred treatment for low back care by Consumer Reports. 59% of people surveyed were highly satisfied with their chiropractic back pain care, while only 39% were highly satisfied with their primary physician’s back pain care. When it comes to treating any kind of spine pain, it is best to go to a chiropractor.
Continuing with the dentist analogy, this phase of treatment is comparable to having braces. Most patients just need minor adjustments, while other patients need more attention and work done on their backs. Similar to going to the orthodontist, the chiropractor requires regular visits during treatment to ensure that the spine is adjusting correctly to the patient’s treatment plan.
At True Living Chiropractic, we see patients who have lost necessary spinal curves. Some patients deal with spinal abnormalities such as scoliosis. If spinal problems aren’t treated they could lead to early degeneration and other negative effects in later years. Many individuals don’t know that there are treatment and relief of bad spinal curves. At True Living Chiropractic, we offer a technique called Pettibon spinal rehab. Pettibon focuses on correcting bad spinal curves to their proper curvature while balancing the soft tissue around the spine.
Abnormal spinal curves or the loss of spinal curves is not something to ignore because they will not heal on their own. Loss of proper spinal curves puts pressure on spinal joints which can lead to spinal decay and arthritis. Not having proper spinal curves is also connected to tension headaches, lower back pain, heart and lung problems and sciatica. Having your chiropractor check your spine regularly is as important as going in for a wellness check-up or getting screened for cancer. Making frequent appointments with your chiropractor ensures that your spine is working properly and healthy.
The Road to Wellness
This phase of treatment can be compared to a checkup with your dentist. Treatment in this phase allows you to prevent further problems, allowing you to enjoy everyday life. As a patient follows their personalized wellness plan they are being “proactive” with their health instead of “reacting” to their health problems. True Living Chiropractic treats patients who understand the importance of their health. Many patients take a “proactive” approach by coming in periodically to make sure that their spine is at optimal performance. If problems do arise, these problems are much easier to fix than patients who do not come in on a regular basis.
Scoliosis is a disease that is manageable when treated proactively, rather than reactively. More females have Scoliosis than males. Scoliosis symptoms begin to appear in the early teenage years. Many schools have programs that help diagnose Scoliosis, but they do not offer any treatment programs. A teenager may know that they have Scoliosis, yet they don’t know that they need treatment to manage their symptoms.The only thing a teenager may notice about their spine is that it looks funny. As a teenager reaches their 20’s or early 30’s they will begin to experience pain and discomfort from their condition. While Scoliosis can be fixed, it becomes harder to fix the longer a patient waits to get help.
The True Living Chiropractic Promise
Whatever phase of care you need, our office has the latest technology to help you achieve your health goals. During your first appointment, we will tell you if our services can’t benefit your health. Our promise to you is that we will help you if we can. If we don’t think our services will benefit you, we will help you find the right treatment.
We are different than traditional insurance. If you have been injured or been in a car wreck, you can receive care from True Living Chiropractic at little to no cost. We figure out the cost of chiropractic care ourselves which takes the guesswork out of the equation. Most insurance companies don’t tell clients about this option. Our clinic usually knows how much coverage you qualify for within several minutes! True Living Chiropractic uses the most effective treatments and techniques for a car wreck, personal, or work injuries.
The first step to healing from any injury is finding out what needs to be fixed. This may seem obvious, but unlike True Living Chiropractic, many clinics don’t have the necessary resources to find out what actually needs to be fixed. When a clinic doesn’t have the right resources they end up guessing what is wrong, which results in the real injury not being fixed. At True Living Chiropractic, we use all of our resources to figure out how to effectively treat and care for our patients. At True Living Chiropractic, we use all of the tools at our disposal to find out the real cause of the problem, ensuring you the quickest possible recovery time.
Don’t wait until its too late
Accidents are scary and often results in pain, but what is scarier is the damage and sometimes permanent debilitation that occurs when injuries from accidents are not treated. People will experience pain from an accident but won’t get help because they feel it isn’t bad enough for treatment. People then begin to wonder why their problems are worse several months are even years later after their accident. Do not wait until the pain is unmanageable, there is never a valid reason to not get treatment after an accident. When people wait, insurance companies usually won’t pay because a client can’t prove the accident caused the injury. Come to True Living Chiropractic to have a thorough exam after an accident or injury and find out if anything is wrong.
True Living Chiropractic uses the most effective techniques that are beneficial for accident and injury recovery such as:
- Muscle injury
- Back pain
- Disc problems
- Whiplash injury
- “Pinched” nerves
- Sprained or Strained joints/ligaments
Techniques used to treat these problems include, but are not limited to Ultrasound, Graston or Pettibon spinal rehab, regular visits to True Living Chiropractic, and other chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments.
True Living Chiropractic Sports Therapy
True Living Chiropractic is dedicated to using the latest proven technique for sports injuries at our office. The treatments we offer usually focus on active lifestyles. Chiropractic care is usually associated with famous sports figures. Our clinic uses techniques such as Pettibon, Graston, and Diversified Chiropractic manipulation, all of which help to recover sports injuries. The office also has a staff member who is a licensed Massage Therapist. Our Massage Therapist is certified in different techniques that will help with your chiropractic recovery. The massage techniques offered are all extremely effective, as well as our treatments and tests we offer for your overall health care.
Graston is a technique that focuses on the soft tissue muscles. This technique is perfect for chronic or acute soft tissue injuries. Graston is so effective that many professional and collegiate teams in Utah use this technique for injuries. The treatment includes a smooth lotion being applied to the treatment area, a metal tool is used in the treatment area to help break down scar tissue. This technique promotes the healing of adhesions and scar tissue around the affected area. Normally people will gather micro-scars and adhesions throughout their lives and not recognize them, leaving these problems untreated.
Pettibon is a technique that helps restore spinal curves while also treating muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This technique is effective because it relieves unnecessary pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. Relieving pressure on the spinal cord and nerves also restores proper back posture. We encourage Pettibon to be used with every patient’s treatment, not just patients who suffer from sports injuries.

True Chiropractic Living offers Massage Therapy because it is beneficial to patients who suffer from stress, tension, and trigger points. Massage Therapy relieves stress and tension while helping your body recover and heal. It also helps the whole body relax, not just the muscles that are being worked on. Regular massage helps chiropractic care and adjustments hold in place for a longer period of time. Adjustments won’t hold as long if the surrounding muscles are too tight. When muscles are loose and relaxed, adjustments are able to have maximum effectiveness. Massage has many benefits, come into True Living Chiropractic and feel the difference massage will make in your everyday life.
