A new high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Satterwhite Chiropractic appreciates this confirmation! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists participated in this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they reached agreement on current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They strengthened the present statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for older back pain patients. The panel added two additional recommendations that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Satterwhite Chiropractic employs is known as Cox Technic. In research studies concerning this approach, it’s known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also showed that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic recognizes that exercise is critical to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic encourages all our Oxford chiropractic patients to exercise.
