Satterwhite Chiropractic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A familiar question for your Oxford chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which Oxford chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Oxford chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t produce beneficial results. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians used chiropractic. Though it was very below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for back and neck pain care. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is expanding as additional people look for and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may require a few visits to obtain relief. Satterwhite Chiropractic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in three months. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Satterwhite Chiropractic: educate our Oxford back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 29 days and 12 visits were the mean visits and days for improvement. Disc herniations did take a little longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic presents statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Oxford chronic neck and back pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they understand will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Satterwhite Chiropractic has always presented the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have sought care from so many different healthcare professionals that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief decreases the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that offers patients realistic expectations.
