Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments. The theory is that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.
Chiropractic treatment is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment
Auto Accident Recovery
Car accidents can happen to anyone, anytime. In Utah, a motor vehicle crash occurs every eight minutes, and speeding is one of the leading causes. Physical injury is inevitable in these situations.
Besides immediate medical treatment, people who suffer injuries from auto accidents may also need follow-up therapy. Vector Spine and Sports non-surgical and non-pharmacological treatments can be just as helpful.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
A fender bender can cause minor injuries to a driver and passengers. But the more forceful the collision, the more severe and extensive the injuries will be. Other factors such as not wearing a seat belt and late airbag deployment can also contribute to the severity of the injuries.
Not all car accident injuries are visible; signs of internal injury can materialize days or weeks after the accident. If you or someone you know walked away from a car crash unscathed, watch out for these symptoms:
- Persistent neck and back pain
- Numbness or pain in the limbs
- Blurred vision
- Loss of balance
- Difficulty walking
As soon as these symptoms appear, talk to our car accident chiropractor right away. We can offer appropriate chiropractic treatment for car accident injuries in Salt Lake City and Murray.

Massage therapy is used to help manage a health condition or enhance wellness. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. Massage has been practiced in most cultures, both Eastern and Western, throughout human history, and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve pain.
