Encouraging Data on Chiropractic New Roads Back Pain Relief

Data. Data. Data. We humans are well analyzed: our illnesses, our habits, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be beneficial to improve care, particularly flow of low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when required. In New Roads New Roads Chiropractic Center is experienced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if needed.


The global top cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosis of the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. One study stated that low back examination tests alone are not always useful on their own. (1) That’s  the reason that New Roads Chiropractic Center considers everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to come up with a diagnosis and a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers must go to specialists like spinal surgeons. Even the surgeons value it when patients who require their expertise (surgical skills) are referred to them. One recent study highlighted that of 500 cases referred to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals made during the study’s timeframe were thought to be not appropriate. The researchers wrote that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center concurs and is ready to fill that role. Your New Roads chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis and management of low back pain and is well aware of when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic realm of healthcare, Care Response is a filled database of details from chiropractic patients around the world. It’s been gathering data for over 10 years about patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients thought was good about their care and what could be improved. The good included clinical outcomes (less pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and explanation of the condition and its treatment, professionalism, friendliness, feeling valued as a person, safety, comfort, and punctuality. There is always room for improvement, and patients shared that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted good outcomes, etc. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center strives to focus on you during your time at our New Roads chiropractic clinic.


As your New Roads chiropractor, New Roads Chiropractic Center strives to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to enhance quality of life for our low back pain patients. The latest series of questions to help evaluate patients for these outcomes is known as PROMIS that encompasses function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The bottom line from all the collected data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but did not think they did, (3) didn’t improve significantly but felt they did, (4) didn’t improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome described above, and we want to know how you feel you are.
