activities to try to Oxford back pain patients. Here’s why…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem odd when Satterwhite Chiropractic inquires about your sitting habits when you visit Satterwhite Chiropractic for Oxford
back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It is well
known and now even research documented that sitting
for lengthier periods of time is a risk factor for low back
pain. Recent research goes even further to point out that extensive sitting and low physical activity
increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic’s
curiosity about your sitting habits is logical! Satterwhite Chiropractic’s recommendation
to walk is, too.
