This was a tough winter for our backs If your experience was similar to min, you spent to much time in snow boots with shovel in your hands followed by too much time in bed with an ice pack, and perhaps a moderate amount of time regretting, your decision to live at elevation in the Rocky Mountains.
If you didn’t make it out of the winter unscathed, we would like to offer some tips for recovery and a pathway for prevention when the snow begins to fall next winter.
Three T’s can guide you to a happy and healthy summer season and prevent the cycle from repeating. These three T’s are Treatment, Time, and Tools.
Treatment: At Wasatch Pain Solutions we offer safe and effective treatments to manage your pain symptoms while you recover and begin activity to produce long-term results
