How many healthcare practitioners
have you sought for your current pain condition [[whether
be it back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Many West Palm Beach chiropractic
patients who visit Chiropractic Care initially will report that they have consulted with
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Chiropractic Care talks with many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain benefit from
shared medical consultations focused on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical professionals shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Suggested
care methods included chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients had less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of care
options in West Palm Beach healthcare quite attractive!

INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now encourage pain patients to use complementary and integrative health
options – self-care - for pain management as well as their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. Over a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The number one condition that CCM patients listed
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Chiropractic Care welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Chiropractic Care recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of West Palm Beach back pain patients
that will help them control the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most effectively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in bringing
in chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the demand for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain top the
list of causes of disability globally.
Chiropractors are trained and deliver non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers say
that improving collaboration between chiropractic and
medical physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care exercises the best evidence
from research to make clinical treatment decisions that result
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Chiropractic Care and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
