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

How well do you know your spine and what it needs? Does your doctor? Does your insurer (ie, Medicare)? Chiropractic Solutions prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our San Jose chiropractic patients. Your San Jose chiropractor assesses your low back when there is low back pain, your neck when there’s neck pain, your neck when there is 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. Sadly, 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 San Jose chiropractor strives 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 that compared 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 several areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an underestimated prevalence of low back pain. (1) Chiropractic Solutions knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that expressly looked at one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient point of view and the objective testing angle found that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, actual input was from people: patients filling out questionnaires and doctors doing objective tests. These findings led the researchers to observe that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is important in the whole general picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your San Jose chiropractor factors in this evidence to care for your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your San Jose chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence leads the spine relief treatment plan at Chiropractic Solutions. A fascinating study of chiropractic students revealed how with each year of schooling the students became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is ready to take care of San Jose back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of useful chiropractic spine care keeps growing! Researchers write today of how the use of non-pharmacological pain management may prevent unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one type of non-drug pain management offering. In a study 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 use chiropractic are found to have higher clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries a year 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 more satisfaction. (5) These aren’t bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
