May 2019 Healthy News: Oxford Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

Instead of opioids, Oxford chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

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 chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to or without opioids.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Vincent Pankonin on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how chronic back pain treatment without opioids using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management permitted a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

Satterwhite Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

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 2 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.
