Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That’s also the goal of your West Palm Beach chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership among the West Palm Beach back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).

CHIROPRACTIC ENTHUSIASM FOR THE ROLE OF BACK PAIN PROVIDER

Being a chiropractor is the best! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Care enjoy their profession most because they are capable to reduce pain and build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients through a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were marked as “being trained to diagnose”the foundation for quality care and desirable clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor agrees! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is the best part of daily practice.

EFFECT OF HEALTHCARE PROVIDER AVAILABILITY: MD/Surgeon, DC, PCP

Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon added to the number of non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the addition of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and decreased 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults. The researchers admit certain limitations in their study as they pulled a certain group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the analysis set. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability impacts how much is expended on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with increased spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In West Palm Beach, back pain sufferers get a partner at Chiropractic Care who can help them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is realizing that the one who is truly at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person suffering with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain is the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages most of the time anyway and desires suggestions about how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to handle pain (behavioral changes to contain and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take support from clinicians along the lines of education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) West Palm Beach back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Chiropractic Care need to communicate how each sees back pain management to most advantageously reduce the pain!
