Continued Oxford Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

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.

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.
