“We instruct patients how to do in-home exercises to assist in flexibility and the strengthening of their core,”
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) March 25, 2010
A Kansas City woman reviewed how Chiropractor Dr. Robert Patterson treated her chronic back pain without medication or surgery. The patient, Carol Oster, discussed her personal experience living with back pain, long-term health care costs and Medicare in a new video.

To Oster, the fact that Dr. Patterson accepted Medicare was important to her recovery and on-going treatment. “It gets to be a pretty expensive issue because these things aren’t taken care of in a week or two and (Patterson) takes Medicare which was extremely helpful to me,” Oster said.
Oster’s back pain was so severe she could barely walk. “I couldn’t even roll over in bed to give my new husband a hug. When I’d get up, I could hardly walk. I was really reluctant to go to a chiropractor because I didn’t think that that had anything to do with my issues,” said Oster. “Dr. Patterson has improved the quality of life. Each time I come in, I feel good. I feel like (Patterson has) done wonderful things for me and my back.”
Patterson practices conservative care, which is less invasive than surgery, and he emphasizes viewing a patient as a whole person, decompression manipulation and exercise. “We instruct patients how to do in-home exercises to assist in flexibility and the strengthening of their core,” Patterson said. “Therapy modalities to reduce pain, inflammation and nutrition may also be used to aid in the progress.”
