Coordinated Fort Wayne Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

April 05, 2022

So, you want relief for your back pain to return and enjoy life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers get that! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is well aware of this, too, and collaborates with our Fort Wayne back pain patients and their other healthcare providers to get them back to “normal,” enjoying life again.


A recent study described the referral practices of general practitioners to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one chiropractor and also offer diagnostic ultrasound obtained more referrals. 31% of all new patients - 2.5 referrals a week - in chiropractic offices came via a referral from a general practitioner. Chiropractors who referred more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who shared that they had expertise in geriatric care and had more new patients per week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings emphasize the importance of interprofessional communication which your Fort Wayne chiropractor supports! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc collaborates with local Fort Wayne healthcare colleagues in all ways to help our shared back and neck pain patients in finding relief and regaining their quality of life.


Quality of life is often an indication of how well we feel, especially as we age. A report of Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was quite revealing. Those who got spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT versus 50% for PDT. Those who received spinal manipulation reported their health-related quality of life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85 for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. Regarding the level of concern over the care they were receiving, SMT patients receiving chiropractic care reported a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient getting prescription therapy. (2) Our goal at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is to lower our Fort Wayne back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by performing a thorough examination, explaining well what the condition is as well as the expected care outcomes, and performing gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
