Dr. Trevor Tipton
Dr. Trevor grew up in North Texas before joining the United States Army. After getting injured in the Army, he started searching to find a way to live pain-free without taking medication to numb his pain. While working on his degree at Kansas State University, Dr. Trevor had the opportunity to intern with a local chiropractic clinic. During his internship, he learned how to fix his pain source through functional screens, chiropractic care, and rehab. He understands the frustration that comes with pain and injury, and he is passionate about helping others experiencing pain in St. George, Utah, who want the same experience.

Everything you need to know before your visit
Every patient deserves the time to feel heard and to express their goals. That is why our new patient visits are 45-60 minutes. Our chiropractic physicians will conduct a thorough history and examination to get a clear picture of your specific condition. If at any point during your visit, we feel there is somebody better suited for your goals, we will tell you exactly who that is in the community.
Every patient is different, and every treatment plan should be different as well. After our examination, your chiropractic physician will be able to provide you with clarity of your specific condition and provide you with specific treatment option built for your goals. These treatment options can include soft tissue work to relax tight muscles, chiropractic adjustments to provide motion in restricted areas, and injury-specific rehabilitation to strengthen muscles and correct faulty movement patterns.
Our clinical team is dedicated to providing the education and resources patients need to achieve their health goals. In our experience, most patients can be treated the same day and leave feeling better than when they first arrived.
Absolutely not. Some patients wish to avoid chiropractic adjustment altogether. Actually, it is not uncommon for a patient to need something completely different. Our goal is to listen to what each patient needs individually and to provide them with the results they want. Chiropractic adjustments are just one of the many treatments we provide to help you reach your health goals. Every patient is different. It’s not about us. It is about you and your journey to be pain free.
Absolutely not. Our goal is that you don’t need us at all. Once we have ruled out any red flags during your history and examination, a trial of care begins. Pain is a message from the body that something needs attention. Our goal is to figure out what your body needs.
For most of our patients, the trial of therapy is short, and patients see results within 1-6 visits. During this time, your pain should be decreasing, and your function should be increasing. If a patient fails to improve under our care, we work hard to find the answers or coordinate a referral to another specialist.
Most patients find that once they feel better, they have received enough education and resources from us to manage on their own and chose to come in when they need us.
Every patient is different. The amount of visits depends on your specific conditions and goals. How long has it been around? How severe is it? No two people are the same. Therefore, no two treatment plans will be the same. Based on the finding by our chiropractic physicians, we will tailor a treatment plan specifically to you.
Absolutely. Chiropractic care can make pregnancy more comfortable and delivery less complicated. Our own Dr. Kati Smith is highly trained and experienced in the art of prenatal chiropractic care. She uses a method called Webster Technique to assess your pelvic biomechanics and improve function to support you through your pregnancy journey and prepare you for a safer, more comfortable birth.
