Chiropractic Solutions Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That is also the goal of your San Jose chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership involving the San Jose 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 the best! A recent survey reported that chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Solutions relish their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain and increase strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the top 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 San Jose 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 elder 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 pulled a certain set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the analysis set. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability affects how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is altered by provider type and whether the provider availability increases or decreases. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In San Jose, back pain sufferers have a partner at Chiropractic Solutions who can guide 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 is 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 pursue more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to handle and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take encouragement from clinicians concerning education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) San Jose back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions need to communicate how each sees back pain management to best reduce the pain!
