New Roads Chiropractic Center Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you understand your spine and what it requires? Does your doctor? Does your insurer (ie, Medicare)? New Roads Chiropractic Center prides itself on knowing the spine of each of our New Roads chiropractic patients. Your New Roads chiropractor assesses your low back when there is low back pain, your neck when there is neck pain, your neck when you have arm pain, your low back when you have leg pain, your thoracic spine when you have thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor knows your spine. Unfortunately, sometimes your insurer does not. The chiropractic profession endeavors to provide the research to the insurers to cover essential treatment for your spine while your New Roads chiropractor endeavors to communicate openly with your insurer for your best care and with you for your best clinical outcome: back pain relief, neck pain relief, arm pain relief, leg pain relief, etc.

YOUR INSURER

Administrators’ data doesn’t tell the whole story about back pain. In one study that compared self-reported low back pain to data collected by health groups that track low back pain via billing codes and such discovered that these two groups do not agree. Self-reported data regarding low back pain (21.2%) was greater than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients founded on data varied in several areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an undervalued prevalence of low back pain. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that specifically examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient angle and the objective testing angle found that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, authentic input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors doing objective tests. These findings led the researchers to note that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is valuable in the whole general picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your New Roads chiropractor factors in this evidence to take care of your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your New Roads chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence guides the spine relief treatment plan at New Roads Chiropractic Center. An interesting study of chiropractic students revealed how with each year of education they became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is prepared to take care of New Roads back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of beneficial chiropractic spine care keeps expanding! Researchers write today that the use of non-pharmacological pain management may prevent unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one such non-drug pain management offering. In a study of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients filled an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who use chiropractic are found to have better clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries a year later, less opioid-associated disability, fewer traumatic falls and injuries, slower declines in activities of daily living and disability over time) at less expense (fewer medical doctors visits for low back pain, less opioid expense, less back-surgery cost) with more satisfaction. (5) These aren’t bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
