Layden Chiropractic Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you know your spine and what it requires? Does your physician? Does your insurer (ie, Medicare)? Layden Chiropractic prides itself on knowing the spine of each of our Plainville chiropractic patients. Your Plainville chiropractor examines your low back when there’s low back pain, your neck when there is neck pain, your neck when there is arm pain, your low back when there’s leg pain, your thoracic spine when there’s thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor knows your spine. Sadly, sometimes your insurer doesn’t. The chiropractic profession endeavors to deliver the research to the insurers to cover essential treatment for your spine while your Plainville chiropractor endeavors to communicate clearly 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 comparing self-reported low back pain to data assembled by health groups that track low back pain via billing codes and such discovered that these two groups do not agree. Self-reported data about low back pain (21.2%) was higher than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients founded on data differed in a few areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an undervalued prevalence of low back pain. (1) Layden Chiropractic knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that expressly examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient point of view and the objective testing angle revealed that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, real input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors doing objective tests. These findings directed the researchers to notice that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is important in the overall picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your Plainville chiropractor uses this evidence to take care of your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your Plainville chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence guides the spine relief treatment plan at Layden Chiropractic. An interesting study of chiropractic students revealed how with each year of learning the students became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is prepared to take care of Plainville back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of beneficial chiropractic spine care keeps growing! Researchers report 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 an analysis of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients got an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who utilize chiropractic are shown to have better clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries 12 months later, less opioid-linked 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 higher levels of satisfaction. (5) These are not bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
