Oxford chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost reducing.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

Satterwhite Chiropractic welcomes all spine pain patients! Spine pain is disconcerting for its sufferers. Oxford chiropractic spinal manipulation helps. Though low back pain is a major cause of disability around the world, its sufferers who have recurrent or persistent episodes of low back pain report that chiropractic maintenance care is effective as it is patient-centered care. (1) Neck pain sufferers, too, find help with chiropractic. Neck pain patients who undergo spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – had lowered risk by 2.38 times to need higher level and costly care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other type of care (46%). (2) A new study of Medicare patient claims reports that patients who had less access to chiropractic care had a rise in visits (32.3 a year) to primary care physicians for spine pain and an uptick in spine surgeries (5.5 a year) costing an extra $114,967 per 1000 Medicare beneficiaries and $391 million nationally. (3) Your Oxford chiropractor is well-skilled in delivering spinal manipulation.  Spinal manipulation is and has been advised as first-line treatment for low back pain. Medicare claims’ reviews point out that chiropractors are the majority of healthcare providers for spinal manipulation and that the overall supply of spinal manipulation providers is dropping. (4) Don’t worry! Your hometown, Oxford chiropractor does not intend to stop providing pain-relieving spinal manipulation, particularly the gentle, research-supported Cox® Technic style of spinal manipulation.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kurt Olding on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he discusses the role of spinal manipulation in the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for the relief of spinal stenosis, a common spine pain condition in the over-65 age group.

Satterwhite Chiropractic presents new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

The benefits of B vitamins is undeniable. B12 deficiency is commonly linked with dementia in patients over 65 years of age. It has also been seen in young people who have normal B12 levels but their methylmalonic acid (MMA) level is high. Testing the MMA level may be considered in patients with symptoms that seem unrelated as in one patient with neuropathy, depression and stomach issues who was found to have a high MMA. (5) Biotin (B7) supplementation is showing potential in the treatment of neuropathic pain and could lessen the required doses of analgesic drugs. (6) Riboflavin (B2) in foods and via supplements is renowned for its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects among others. A recent study found that B2 to be anti-itch. (7) How are your B levels? Let’s talk at your next visit!
