Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That’s also the goal of your Manahawkin chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership among the Manahawkin 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 reported that chiropractors like yours at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center enjoy their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain and increase strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients via a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were marked as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Manahawkin chiropractor agrees! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - especially in managing spine pain issues is a big part of daily practice.

EFFECT OF HEALTHCARE PROVIDER AVAILABILITY: MD/Surgeon, DC, PCP

Researchers questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They found that one new spine surgeon added to the number of non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults. The researchers admit certain limitations in their study as they extracted a certain group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported 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 influences how much is expended on each beneficiary. The effect is altered by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with increased spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In Manahawkin, back pain sufferers get a partner at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center who can help them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is realizing that the one who is really at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person experiencing pain and chronic disorder. When back pain is the chronic issue, the low back pain patient self-manages most of the time anyway and needs suggestions about how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to manage and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take guidance from clinicians along the lines of education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Manahawkin back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center need to work on how each views back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
