Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain06/23/2021Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain and not avoid 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). CHIROPRACTIC ENTHUSIASM FOR THE ROLE OF BACK PAIN PROVIDER Being a chiropractor is the best! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc relish their profession most as they are able to decrease pain as well as increase strength, flexibility, and power with their patients through an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were marked as “being trained to diagnose” – the foundation 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 - especially in managing spine pain issues is the best part of daily practice. EFFECT OF HEALTHCARE PROVIDER AVAILABILITY: MD/Surgeon, DC, PCP Researchers questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon added to the number of 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 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 pulled a specific set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had 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 expended on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with more spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Fort Wayne, back pain sufferers get a partner at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person dealing with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages much of the time anyway and needs suggestions about how best to do that: when to pursue more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to handle pain (behavioral changes to contain and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take support from clinicians regarding education about the condition and the collaboration 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 most advantageously reduce the pain!
