Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Oxford Back Pain Relief

Stats. Stats. Stats. We humans are well studied: our diseases, our habits, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be beneficial to improve care, particularly flow of low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when needed. In Oxford Satterwhite Chiropractic is practiced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if needed.


The worldwide leading cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosing the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. A new study stated that low back examination tests alone are not always useful when considered alone. (1) That is  the reason that Satterwhite Chiropractic associates everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to establish a diagnosis and a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers have to visit specialists like spine surgeons. Even the surgeons value it when patients who require their expertise (surgical skills) are referred to them. One recent study pointed out that of 500 cases referred to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals made during the study’s time period were considered not appropriate. The researchers concluded that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic concurs and is ready to fill that role. Your Oxford chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis and management of low back pain and knows when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic world of healthcare, Care Response is a packed database of details from chiropractic patients around the world. It has been gathering data for over 10 years about patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients felt was good about their care and what could be improved. The good incorporated clinical outcomes (decreased pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and description of the condition and its treatment, professionalism, friendliness, feeling valued as a person, safety, comfort, and punctuality. There is always room for improvement, and patients shared that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted good outcomes, etc. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic tries hard to focus on you during your time at our Oxford chiropractic office.


As your Oxford chiropractor, Satterwhite Chiropractic strives to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to increase quality of life for our low back pain patients. The most recent series of questions to help evaluate patients for these outcomes is called PROMIS that covers function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The final word from all the assembled data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but did not think they did, (3) didn’t improve significantly but felt they did, (4) did not improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome explained above, and we want you to tell us how you feel you are.
