Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

June 23, 2021

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 is also the goal of your Fort Wayne chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It is a partnership among the Fort Wayne back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).


Being a chiropractor is the best! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc take pleasure in their profession most because they are able to decrease pain and build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via a thorough treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were noted 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 Fort Wayne chiropractor agrees! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is a big part of daily practice.


Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They found that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician decreased 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers acknowledge 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 occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the analysis set. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability influences how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed 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 decreased spending. (3) In Fort Wayne, back pain sufferers have a partner at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc who can guide them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.


Medicine is realizing that the one who is really at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person suffering with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages most of the time anyway and needs suggestions about how best to do that: when to request 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 encouragement from clinicians regarding education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Fort Wayne back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc must communicate how each sees back pain management to best reduce the pain!
