Soft Health and Healing Clinic Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain sufferer a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain and not avoid life. That’s also the goal of your Brooks chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership involving the Brooks 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 Soft Health and Healing Clinic take pleasure in their profession most as they are capable to decrease pain as well as build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were noted 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 Brooks chiropractor agrees! 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 questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults. The researchers acknowledge certain limitations in their study as they extracted a certain group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported at least one occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which left 402,372 persons in the analysis set. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability influences how much is expended on each beneficiary. The effect is altered by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Brooks, back pain sufferers get a partner at Soft Health and Healing Clinic who can help them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is realizing that the one who is truly at the core of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person dealing with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain patient 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 handle 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 partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Brooks back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic must communicate how each views back pain management to best help the patient!
