Layden Chiropractic 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 while not avoiding life. That’s also the goal of your Plainville chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It is a partnership among the Plainville 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 found that chiropractors like yours at Layden Chiropractic enjoy their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain and increase strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients via a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were reported 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 Plainville chiropractor concurs! 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 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 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor added 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers state certain limitations in their study as they extracted a specific group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which left 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 increases or decreases. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In Plainville, back pain sufferers have a partner at Layden Chiropractic who can help them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is recognizing that the one who is really at the core of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person experiencing 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 pursue more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to handle and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take support from clinicians concerning education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Plainville back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic need to work on how each views back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
