Healthy News from Your Sitka Chiropractor February 2018

Sitka chiropractic at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka includes examination, diagnosis, treatment, and listening! 


Sitka back pain patients are vital to our Sitka chiropractic practice. Our Sitka chiropractic patients’ thoughts and expectations are influential in the care you obtain and the clinical outcome from that Sitka chiropractic care you achieve. Research documents that users of mind/body practices (like acupuncture, chiropractic, meditation, massage, yoga in this article) consider that these practices treat, prevent and are more effective than other choices like drugs. (1) It is useful for all caregivers to know what their patients are thinking, believe and want. Please communicate that to us! What does a Sitka low back pain patient expect from a physician? 90% expected an exam, tests, diagnosis, reassurance, advice, clear explanation for their pain, symptom management, and the benefits/risks of treatment. About 50% looked to be referred to a specialist.  About 60% wanted to talk about life issues. (2) Does that sound like what you are looking for? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is open to listening, talking, examining, diagnosing and treating you for relief of your Sitka back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST  from the Back Doctors' Podcast series of a patient who expected relief without a back surgery and got it with Cox® Technic.
