Chiropractic services are designed to help treat the cause of pain and discomfort, not just its symptoms. Because back and joint pain can be caused by a variety of factors, it’s important to find out why pain is occurring, said Dr. John Bach, owner of Bach Chiropractic & Massage Therapy.
“We try to identify carefully what is causing your pain,” Bach said. “Pain is a sign that something’s wrong. If you don’t find out what it is and you try to treat it with painkillers alone, you’ll get stuck in a circle of pain and dependency.”
Clients can see Bach for regular adjustments and preventive services as well as emergency issues. The preventive care can help identify problems and treat issues before any symptoms occur. Back pain is usually caused by swelling or muscle guarding in the vertebrae, Bach said. Even before some people know the swelling is present, it can be prevented, he said.
Chiropractic services are especially useful in cases of back pain, joint pain, hand or foot pain, swelling, numbness or a variety of other symptoms, Bach said.
“It is about identifying where the pain is coming from and then fixing that problem,” Bach said. “It’s important to solve the issue, not just treat the symptom.”
Bach has been a chiropractor for nearly 30 years and has served Utah for more than 25 years. Along with the chiropractic services, the practice includes access to a massage therapist. He and his practice are also welcoming to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
“I really like saying our services are as diverse as the community we serve,” Bach said. “We want everyone to feel comfortable here.”
