That’s the reason Satterwhite Chiropractic exists. Satterwhite Chiropractic is here to assist Oxford back pain and neck pain patients discover an alternative that functions for their Oxford back pain relief goal.


There are many Oxford back pain relief plan options! New research reveals some interesting findings. Let’s look at opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There is no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between using Tylenol and using powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin defends the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and halted disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin does this. There’s hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this report? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc confirmed on MRI was seen in all of 9 patients who felt back pain and sciatic leg pain, declined back surgery, and had no motor deficit! It required a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment came about in a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That is rousing news! The discs resorbed.


What compels a patient to choose Oxford back surgery over other options? The patient’s ideas about the treatment may potentially based on insufficient information. The time it takes a patient to decide may be sped up because of scheduling when the patient is one who needs time to really think about the decision. The patient’s not wanting to disturb the system, disappoint the healthcare provider by rejecting recommended treatment. The patient’s earlier experiences with treatment options as undertaken by relatives or friends and the resultant good or bad outcomes. Choosing back surgery or a non-surgical treatment plan for low back and/or leg pain due to a disc herniation is a big, complex decision.
