"I twisted my back in Jackson while carrying a large inflatable raft. The pain decreased my range of motion from down my legs, all the way into my neck. This prevented me from doing pretty much everything. I couldn’t do any of my normal exercises, running, push-ups, etc. My work as a flight nurse was out of the question. I was not able to walk, much less carry patients anywhere. My work with the SWAT team was put on hold as well. And worst of all, my plans to summit the South Teton with my brothers (our goal to summit all 3 of the Tetons) was definitely out of the question. I went to the ER & got prescribed Motrin, Flixard, & Lortabs. These helped with the pain until the therapy started the healing process. After some of treatment, the pain began to decrease significantly & my range of motion increased. Because of the care I received, I was able to climb & backpack in the Tetons, summiting the South Teton! I've been doing flight shifts & I am now! I've been doing flight shifts & I am now on active status with the team."
"Headaches, Headaches, Headaches! I could function all right, but for years I always had an ongoing headache. Then it got worse… I had a really bad episode that would not go away for about three weeks… I missed several days of work & I just didn’t feel like going anywhere or doing anything. I took Acetaminophen & Ibuprofen, switching every 2 hours. I tried muscle relaxers, but they made me feel tired & stupid… So I finally called Dr. Smith.
After two treatments at Elite Performance, the new really bad headache went away… and the best part was after three weeks of care, the headache that I had been experiencing for years was completely gone. It was such a GREAT experience to wake up headache free, I’m not stiff & sore anymore. Yea!!"
"After an automobile accident I was experiencing chronic neck & back pain with numbing pain extending from my neck down my left arm into my finger tips. With pinched nerves, I developed skin shingles. Chronic pain can cause fatigue & depression. I would lose focus easily & I could not work as effectively. I was unhappy, irritable, & very low on patience because of it. I just couldn’t enjoy life. My movement was extremely limited, playing with my young son was painful & always guarded, like any young, healthy boy, he loves to wrestle & rough house & that was out. I love to golf & play guitar, it seemed like all of the things I love to do were becoming more difficult & increasingly painful. I have had to cut down on my work hours.
After several medical doctor visits, I had become extremely frustrated. My physician told me to wait it out & get used to the pain. He attempted to prescribe pain killers but that seemed to be a mistake to me. I felt it was wrong to mask the problem rather than solve it. I requested a referral for Chiropractic care.
After just three visits at, I noticed extreme reduction in pain & increased mobility. My husband & family commented on the improvement. It’s funny, but you don’t realize how much pain you are enduring. I guess you just become accustomed, and then when it is lifted, it’s like a whole new world. I can finally put in a full day of work & I have started a work-out regimen."
"I had a herniated disc and I’m only 13 years old. It didn’t help any thing by taking medication. My next option was a cortisone shot and then later surgery. The herniated disc also put pressure on some nerves that went down my leg then into my feet.
My herniated disc caused me to miss lots of school, fall behind, and even fail some classes. It prevented me from playing lacrosse, volleyball, and any physical activity whatsoever.
I started out with just dealing with the pain. Then I started physical therapy. But that didn’t help, so I went to an orthopedic doctor who prescribed me three different medications. That didn’t help, just made me grumpy. When I told my doctor the medicine didn’t work he recommended a cortisone shot. My next option was surgery.
I have improved since I started coming to Dr. Smith’s office. They’ve put me on the DRX machine and since then I’ve been doing great. I’ve been back to school and this weekend I even get to play lacrosse! So in ending... Thanks!"
"I came to Dr. Smith because of poor health, shortness of breath, aching legs & back. I was unable to walk well. I felt like I was headed for a life in a wheel chair. It took me twice as long to accomplish everyday jobs. I was tired all of the time & aching all of the time. It just seemed hopeless. Then, within just days of coming here, everything started to improve. I’m getting my life back. Thanks!"- Carol
"I was in extreme pain that kept me from doing any physical activity. I could only lay in bed or in the recliner. I could hardly walk... I searched out every avenue possible… After starting on the DRX treatment I now feel no pain."- D.D. - Coalville, UT
"Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, my head and neck feel so much better. I honestly thought that I might have had a tumor on the back of my head because of how intense the pain was in both my head and neck. I had Dr. Smith look at it. He was certain he could fix the problem and a few treatments later my pain went away... I feel so much better!"- G. Brown
“I have spent the last year in and out of Dr.'s offices for severe Low Back and Leg Pain and I've been on all kinds of meds. I drove for 3 hours up and back from Emery Utah for DRX treatments and it has been worth every minute.
I would recommend the Elite Performance DRX decompression program to anyone who has had back and leg pain like I've had. It's helped me in so many ways. My pain was lessened a great deal with in a few treatments. I don't want to stay in bed anymore. The DRX has worked wonders. I have no regrets with choosing this treatment. The treatment has been good in every way. The DRX treatment, the doctors and everyone have been so helpful and so caring.
I have been to so many other doctors that gave me things for the pain, but nothing helped fix the problems. Half way through my care, my pain improved to the point where I had little to no pain…even without meds. At first the DRX treatment for me seemed a bit intimidating... I could feel it change things in my back. It was a little painful at first but, after your 3rd or 4th time on the DRX I starting feeling a ton better.
On my first visit we did a few tests and he talked to me about what was really going on and what my options were. On my 2nd visit, we discussed the diagnosis…a herniated/bulging disc with spinal degeneration all around it. He explained the significance of my situation and told me that it wasn't too late to fix it. He recommended the DRX treatments and the spinal rehab program that comes with it. Knowing that I had a way to fix this problem, we got started that very day. This was a definite commitment but, it has absolutely been worth it. Thanks again to every one involved in my treatment. I finally feel so much better. Thank you!"
"I came to the office because of persistent back pain. I was retired. I tried not to be grouchy but found that I was reluctant to engage in social activities, either by going out or having friends or family come to the house
Regular duties were becoming more difficult. Lifting, taking a walk, getting up in the morning, getting sufficient sleep, sitting or standing all were very painful. An x-ray taken at physician’s office showed herniated discs. The stronger drugs produced intolerable side effects; the milder ones did not help very much.
Despite reluctance to try the DRX 9000 program I did. It took a while, but gradually the pain relief felt great with the treatments lasted longer and longer. Now I can now do most anything an 80-year old person could be expected to do."
"Literally dozens of doctors told me that there was nothing more that they could do for the pain…some even told me to just expect to be in a wheel chair. I went from being among the top 1% physically fit in the army Special Forces to being in so much pain that I could not even tie my shoe or hold my new daughter. I tried everything from physical therapy to drugs for over 5 years for this, but nothing worked. Finally, I went to Dr. Smith and I did his Spinal Decompression, alignment & fitness program. I improved exactly as he told me I would and I lost over 40lbs. I couldn’t believe it! My wife cried "I have my husband back". I FEEL GREAT..."- Steve M.
