Regular Oxford chiropractic care. A helpful
idea? Yes! Consider other good regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly check their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings twice a
year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to have
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend proper food intake a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body well.
Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College
of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2)
Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not
necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but on a
regular schedule to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees
many Oxford chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Oxford
chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will experience no less than one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us experiences back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Satterwhite Chiropractic often informs patients that the existing
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It won’t
be ignored. Your spine will appreciate
an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That’s where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our Oxford chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care alleviates back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will
not come back, preventing pain and/or its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile
goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A recent study titled the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance
care reduced the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced
activities and increased the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically
temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to reduce
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Oxford back
pain patients, Satterwhite Chiropractic is here.
Listen to this PODCAST
with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could live
his life the way he wants to live it.
