Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your Oxford back pain or neck pain disappear right now? You are not alone! Satterwhite Chiropractic can empathize. Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain keeps many Oxford back pain sufferers from working and from playing and from doing activities of daily living that must be done (walking, showering, cooking, cleaning, dressing, etc.). When back pain affects you or a loved one or friend, visit Satterwhite Chiropractic for relief and chiropractic advice about pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT WELL SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may be successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for some hours, days, weeks, months or not at all. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly regarded medical review systems in the world, stated that a drug combination, though may be better for more pain relief, for low back pain and sciatica is not supported. There is no clear evidence, as a matter of fact there is a shortage of studies and overall low quality of evidence, that backs drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is lower with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s ok. Satterwhite Chiropractic cares for back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Satterwhite Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Oxford back pain sufferers get back pain relief. Spinal manipulation is advocated as first line treatment of back pain by the American College of Physicians and the American Board of Family Physicians. (2) Cox® Technic has been shown in federally funded spinal research projects to drop intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies about Cox® Technic have shown that back pain relief happens in 29 days and 12 visits. Of course, more severe disc herniations and spinal stenosis may take more time than these averages, but relief happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome.
