Acupuncturist Chapel Hill, NC
At the chiropractic and acupuncture offices of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay, we appreciate referrals from many local medical doctors and the proximity of many fine medical establishments such as UNC Medical Center, Duke Medical Centers, and others. Many medical doctors understand that the chiropractic adjustment is safe when performed by licensed practitioners. Still, they appreciate the variety of techniques Dr. Oskardmay uses in her office to help people get well quickly and safely. Some medical doctors and patients alike may be concerned that some high-velocity chiropractic techniques would be unsafe or cause patients pain. Dr. Oskardmay utilizes both low velocity and high-velocity adjusting techniques depending on patient needs, so patients and referring physicians can rest assured she will provide safe, effective care to patients experiencing back or neck pain.
Many people over the age of 55 experience back pain and want to avoid drugs and surgery. At our office, Dr. Oskardmay provides hands-on and activator chiropractic spinal mobilization to reduce pain, restore pain-free range of motion, improve nerve flow, and postural integrity. The chiropractic adjustment is a very safe procedure. Patients who receive the treatment experience less pain and improved functionality in the short term and the long run. Patients interested in trying chiropractic can have confidence in their decision to use alternative medicine, which has none of the adverse side effects of traditional medical care such as drugs and surgery.
In fact, in the 2009 Journal of Manipulative and Physical Therapy, a peer-reviewed medical journal, an article entitled A Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Two Types of Spinal Manipulation and Minimal Medical Conservative Care for Adults 55 and Older of Adults with Subacute or Chronic Low Back Pain discussed this topic. There are terrific benefits and safety from both high velocity and low-velocity adjustment procedures. Both techniques types performed at our office show marked improvement over other types of medical care for this population with back pain. Medical doctors want the best for their patients and appreciate the research-based conclusions that referral to our office benefits patients.
At Acupractic Natural Healing Center, we love taking care of our patients safely and effectively using low-risk chiropractic techniques. Chiropractic helps to reduce back and neck pain naturally. The research highlighted in this JMPT article proves the safety and effectiveness of our treatments that thousands have already experienced.
