New Roads Chiropractic Center Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That is also the goal of your New Roads chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership among the New Roads 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 amazing! A recent survey reported that chiropractors like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center relish their profession most because they are able to decrease pain as well as increase strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via a thorough treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were noted as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and desirable clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your New Roads chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is a highlight 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 found that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the addition of one primary care physician decreased 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults, and the addition of one chiropractor added 18.7 conservative care episodes and decreased 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older 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 occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability affects how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is altered by provider type and whether the provider availability increases or decreases. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with more spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In New Roads, back pain sufferers get a partner at New Roads Chiropractic Center who can help them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is recognizing that the one who is really at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person dealing 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 wants suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to pursue more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to manage and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take guidance from clinicians regarding education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) New Roads back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center must communicate how each views back pain management to best reduce the pain!
