The Value of Oxford Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you envision that? Do you live it? What are healthy living behaviors? Satterwhite Chiropractic is all for healthy living. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Oxford chiropractic patients can expect their Oxford chiropractor to be an escort to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with exisiting spine pain issues but also avent future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, don’t they? A recent study proved that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional favorable healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors appeared to decrease the chance of developing long term disturbing low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Wearing a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be notably welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic works with our Oxford back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief shows that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and doctor’s qualifications influenced their choice.
