Movement is life! Your body mechanics determine whether that movement is painful or free and full of life. Chiropractic and the cutting-edge manual care we deliver are essential for reaching your FULL potential.
Are you giving life to your brain and body or is your diet causing chronic inflammation, fatigue, and brain fog. The food you eat is more than calories, it’s fuel. Optimize your fuel to unlock your greatest genetic expression.
Your brain is your greatest asset! Every movement, nutrient, thought, toxin, and trauma have an effect on the brain. Damage to the brain, gut, or body doesn’t allow for optimal brain function. Is your brain getting the best of everything?
Elevation Health Center is like no other health care facility in the Treasure Valley. You will find the largest range of equipment and services that deliver state of the art, evidence-based, natural health care in the area.
The body is designed to be healthy. Unfortunately, sickness and disease have become so common place in our society it seems normal, but the reverse is actually true. Sickness, pain, and disease is the body’s way of telling us something is wrong. We believe that the power that made the body can heal the body. We see our job as putting your body and nervous system in a position to function properly. When that happens, the innate intelligence of the body takes over and gets you back to the pain-free, optimally-functioning state you are meant to be in.
What Are You Waiting For:
Symptoms act as our body’s fire alarm system. Too often our health care system works to just disguise or hide the fire instead of putting it out and rebuilding. In the beginning, we see our role as firemen. Let’s get the fire extinguished. Let’s get you out of pain and decrease the inflammation ravaging your body.
In the next phase, our role shifts to become an architect. We work together to develop a custom plan that will allow us to start to rebuild those weak areas that were causing you pain and rebuild your overall health.
Our final role is one of a carpenter. Now we guide you as you do the necessary work to build optimal function and health into your life. Because we have so many different providers and services under one roof, we can help you achieve those goals through done-with-you programs, an integrative approach, and the accountability that we all need to be successful.
We offer chiropractic, functional exercise, spinal decompression, deep tissue laser, shockwave, a comprehensive gut and weight loss program, and so many other natural health services. With so many tools at our disposal, we are able to craft a plan that focuses like a laser on your goals.
If you have low back pain that is partially coming from the spine, the muscles that support the spine, and the discs in between the vertebrae, but you only address the spinal issue, you aren’t going to heal as quickly or as thoroughly. Our comprehensive care will address the nuances of your health issue, so we not only get you feeling better faster but also keep the problem from coming back.
We have been serving Boise since 2011. In that time, we have consistently added more ways to help more people. One of the biggest additions was our Gut Restoration Program in 2019. 8 Week to Wellness combines nutrition, exercise, chiropractic, and supplementation, with an app for your phone that you can track your progress to help people Eat Well, Move Well and Think Well.
Our care goes beyond just helping people feel better. We have helped people lose weight, reverse diabetes, and get off cholesterol and blood pressure medication, to live happier, healthier lives. This program isn’t a starvation diet. There are no magic pills or drops involved. It is losing weight and getting healthier the right way, through a healthy diet and exercise. We do testing before and after the program to gauge not only how much weight or how many inches you lost, but really, how much your physiology has changed.
We treat low back pain, headaches, neck pain, whiplash, neuropathy, shoulder pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, and just about any other muscle or joint issue in the body. We are here to help you regardless of the size or specificity of your health goal. Some people come to us to fix a problem they just woke up with, while others want to turn their whole life around. We meet you wherever you are in your journey to live the healthiest life possible.

Stop masking the symptoms and get to the root cause of the problem
Through a thorough history and consultation, neurologic and orthopedic testing, and, if needed, the highest quality digital imagery, we’re devoted to getting to the root cause of your issues.
Each person has a unique set of problems based on the physical wear and tear on their body. The approach to solving these issues has to be just as unique as the person that created them.
Freedom comes in understanding how the problem was created, solving the issue, and discerning how to not recreate the damage. Functional adaptation leads to living your best life!
Most patients can tell us exactly where, when, and how their problems started, but may of them wait years or even a decade to seek the help they need. As an office, we strive to look at not just how your body is feeling, but how it is functioning. If we can fix the functionality, the feeling will always improve on its own.
Unfortunately, most of the time our patients wait until they cannot manage the pain and functionality of the issue any longer. In this situation the pain is the last symptom to show itself, but the first symptom to disappear. This leads the patient to think all is better when internal damage is only continuing to compound. At Elevation Health Center, we want to fix the underlying problem and let you continue living the life you deserve!
“I wish I would have found you guys earlier!”
This statement is made by countless patients who have dealt with their issues for years and are just now getting the underlying problems fixed. In so many of these cases, seeking help earlier would save them from unnecessary pain and allow us to do more for them in terms of repairing the issue.
Let’s take the example of a person involved in a car accident. Accidents put a person’s body through dramatic changes – spinal misalignments, pinching of nerves, damaged discs, etc. If the person is seen immediately, in most cases, the body can be put back into alignment or treated to get the patient back to their pre-injury status. When the body goes through massive changes and is allowed to sit or remain in that configuration, the issue becomes harder to treat. The more time that passes allows scar tissue to develop, changes the way a person moves, and does further nerve damage, making it much more difficult to get the patient back to their original state. In some cases, the damage done can be permanent and leave the patient more prone to injury moving forward.
When the human body is in pain, it does amazing things subconsciously to help alleviate or compensate for the issues that are not being treated. For instance, if every time you took a step with your right leg and had a shooting pain from the knee, your body would automatically make changes to the way you walk to favor the pain. This would result in you putting less weight on the right leg and more on the left. Generally, this compounds into much larger problems down the road. The left knee would now be under more stress than intended, the gait in which you walk would change stressing out the hips, and that change would create tension and stress in your lower back.
Not addressing the one bad knee creates issues in both knees, the hips, and possibly the patient’s back. The body’s adaption to this situation is only meant to mask the current pain and serve as a short-term solution to the underlying issue. This will always be deceiving and create more issues down the road that will be harder to correct.
Those patients that wish they’d found us sooner realize how much time, energy, and money they’ve wasted dealing with the problem over the years. At Elevation Health Center, we only ask that as issues arise, DO NOT WAIT to address them. Waiting for the healing your body needs will only cause more harm and damage over time. Waiting will turn a small issue into a larger chronic issue, and will cost you more money down the road to resolve.
Taking care of your new or chronic issues can be best described with the metaphor of planting a tree. Anyone could tell you the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, but the second-best time to plant a tree is now! Please take the time now to address your issues and work on the health of your body. It is NEVER TOO LATE to take care of yourself. So, schedule your appointment today with Elevation Health Center! We look forward to helping you get back to the life you were meant to live!!
