I’m citing a theorem in a reference, and I want to say

By Theorem 1 in [1] and the following paragraphs, we can know that......

I mean the paragraphs in that reference below the theorem, but my expression makes me think I’m referring to the following paragraphs in my paper.

Is it better if I use “the paragraphs following it” or “its following paragraphs”?

Is it really a problem? How to make it clearer?

By Theorem 1 in [1] and the following paragraphs, we can know that...

The above example may lead people to search for additional paragraphs other than those in the theorem.

If the paragraphs are those below the theorem, I suggest

'By Theorem 1 in [1] and the paragraphs following that, we can know that...'
