Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Oxford chronic pain is
extensive. Oxford opioid use is widespread.
What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with
Satterwhite Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
apt to receive a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage
their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to
researchers that their pain would be higher without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care
to keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Oxford chiropractic patients at
Satterwhite Chiropractic highly regard their chiropractic care! Oxford

Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Oxford athletes – recreational and professional
– want that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced improved muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The increased force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt better
performances in two football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for regulating the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and slightly diminished performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it enhances your edge. Let’s chat
at your next Oxford chiropractic appointment.
