Atomic Pilates & Chiropractic
Hey everyone, my name is Dr. Ryan Griffith and I’m excited to introduce myself and my wife, Kristin. Together, we are the proud owners of Atomic Pilates & Chiropractic, located in Bluffdale, Utah. Today, we want to take a moment to explain the inspiration behind our journey.
Around six years ago, Kristin, a Pilates instructor, noticed that many of her clients were struggling with various pains in their backs, shoulders, and ankles, which hindered their ability to fully enjoy their Pilates workouts. It was disheartening to witness their struggle, and that’s when Kristin started referring them to me for chiropractic care.
The collaboration between us turned out to be nothing short of remarkable. While I focused on alleviating their pain through chiropractic treatments, Kristin skillfully guided them in building strength and stability through Pilates. Together, we shared a common goal: to provide long-lasting effects and support our patients throughout their lives, rather than relying on regular visits alone. This belief in co-managing our patients’ health through the harmonious integration of chiropractic care and Pilates became the cornerstone of our practice.
At Atomic Pilates and Chiropractic, our overarching mission is simple yet powerful—to help you FEEL better, MOVE better, LIVE better. We want you to get back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. By blending our expertise in chiropractic treatments and soft tissue work with Kristin’s profound knowledge of Pilates and exercise, we have discovered a path to maintaining optimal health and well-being for an extended period.
We’re dedicated to offering total body conditioning, bringing together the forces of chiropractic, Pilates, and massage to provide you with comprehensive care. Our choice of the name “Atomic” is symbolic of the idea that individual elements possess inherent power, but when combined, they create something truly transformative. Pilates, chiropractic care, and massage—all individually remarkable—are capable of producing significant effects. However, it is the integration of these practices that generates a profound and lasting impact on your life.
Now, let’s delve into the core of our approach—how we administer treatment, why we have chosen this particular method, when it is best to seek assistance, and the remarkable benefits you can expect. When you step into our clinic, we adopt a comprehensive approach to evaluate your condition and tailor our treatment accordingly.
During your session, I begin by assessing the functionality of your joints, ensuring they have the appropriate range of motion. Next is an examination of your muscle performance, paying close attention to any excessive tightness or insufficient support provided to your joints. It is crucial to establish a harmonious movement within your body. To achieve this, I conduct a series of tests during your regular appointments, meticulously evaluating muscle function, joint mobility, and overall movement patterns.
To address the issues we uncover, I employ a dynamic combination of techniques. Traditional chiropractic adjustments play a pivotal role, primarily focusing on the neck, mid back, and low back. Furthermore, I perform extremity adjustments, targeting areas such as the shoulders, knees, hips, and ankles. Complementing these adjustments, we incorporate the power of soft tissue release. This involves elongating tight muscles that contribute to pain while simultaneously balancing out other muscles that may not be functioning optimally.
By seamlessly integrating these multifaceted approaches, we can achieve superior outcomes. You will experience faster and longer-lasting results, empowering you to reclaim the activities and pursuits you cherish. If you find yourself grappling with pain, we strongly encourage you to seek treatment sooner rather than later. Delaying treatment can inadvertently prolong your recovery time. Instead of waiting for weeks on end, hoping the pain subsides, consider coming in for an evaluation within a couple of days. This proactive approach allows us to assess your situation, determine the underlying cause, and swiftly develop an effective plan to expedite your healing process.
In many cases, when we address an injury promptly, we witness resolution within a few weeks. However, depending on the severity of the condition, the recovery process may extend up to a month or six weeks. By combining adjustments, soft tissue work, and incorporating Pilates and exercise, we can further enhance your recovery. We collaborate closely with our instructors to ensure they grasp your unique needs, crafting targeted exercises that optimize your progress.
Ultimately, our unwavering goal is to facilitate your swift recovery, empowering you to lead the fulfilling life you desire. Through Atomic Pilates and Chiropractic, we strive to provide a holistic approach to health and wellness, where the fusion of chiropractic care, Pilates, and massage creates a transformative experience for our patients.
We are genuinely excited to embark on this journey with you, and we cannot wait to witness the positive impact it will have on your life. Stay tuned for our weekly updates, as we guide you on the path to optimal health and strength. Always remember, at Atomic Pilates and Chiropractic, we are here to support you every step of the way.
