Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief

Stats. Stats. Stats. We human-beings are well analyzed: our diseases, our habits, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be quite helpful in improving care, particularly flow of low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when required. In Fort Wayne Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is practiced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if needed.

LOW BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT DATA

The worldwide top cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosis of the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. One study commented that low back examination tests alone aren’t always helpful on their own. (1) That’s  the reason that Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc associates everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to establish a diagnosis as well as a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers have to go to specialists like spinal surgeons. Even the surgeons appreciate it when patients who need their skill (surgical skills) are referred to them. A recent study pointed out that of 500 cases sent to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals made during the study’s timeframe were considered not appropriate. The researchers wrote that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc agrees and is prepared to perform that role. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is dedicated to diagnosing and managing low back pain and knows when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.

DATA ON CHIROPRACTIC BACK PAIN PATIENT CARE

In the chiropractic world of healthcare, Care Response is a filled database of details from chiropractic patients around the world. It’s been collecting data for over 10 years about patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients felt was good about their care and what could be improved. The good included clinical outcomes (decreased pain, improved function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and description of the condition and its treatment, professionalism, friendliness, feeling valued as a person, safety, comfort, and punctuality. There is always room for improvement, and patients commented that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted satisfactory outcomes, etc. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc strives to concentrate on you during your time at our Fort Wayne chiropractic office.

CHIROPRACTIC IMPROVES QUALITY OF LIFE

As your Fort Wayne chiropractor, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc works to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to increase quality of life for our low back pain patients. The latest series of questions to assist us in evaluating patients for these outcomes is known as PROMIS that covers function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The final word from all the collected data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but did not think they did, (3) didn’t improve significantly but felt they did, (4) didn’t improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome described above, and we want you to tell us how you feel you are.
