Studies of patients suffering from pain over eight weeks for their first episode of low back pain indicates the pain will most likely persist for over a year. (See Pain, 1997; 73:213-21) Dr. Wendee Whitehead D.C. has developed a gentle, effective system to restore normal function to the spine and relieve pain. According to Dr. Whitehead, “ The study in the journal Pain was based on patients receiving no treatment. We have excellent results with patients under eight weeks and with patients over eight weeks. It makes sense that if the cause of the person's pain is not corrected the pain will persist. We identify the underlying problem and then we correct it. That is why our patients relieve their pain, restore their function and return to their life. If you would like to learn how Dr. Whitehead can help you get out of pain call 512-451-0115.
