Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Manahawkin Back Pain Relief

Data. Data. Data. We human-beings are well studied: our illnesses, our habits, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be beneficial to improve care, particularly flow of low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when needed. In Manahawkin Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is practiced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if needed.


The global leading cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosing the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. A new study stated that low back examination tests alone aren’t always useful when considered alone. (1) That is  why Manahawkin Chiropractic Center connects everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to come up with a diagnosis and a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers must go to specialists like spine surgeons. Even the surgeons value it when patients who need their skill (surgical skills) are sent to them. One recent study highlighted that of 500 cases sent to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals done during the study’s timeframe were deemed inappropriate. The researchers wrote that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center agrees and is prepared to perform that role. Your Manahawkin chiropractor is dedicated to diagnosing and managing low back pain and is well aware of when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic realm of healthcare, Care Response is a packed database of details from chiropractic patients around the world. It has been collecting data for over 10 years regarding patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients thought was good about their care and what could be improved. The good included clinical outcomes (less pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and explanation 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 shared that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted good outcomes, etc. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center tries hard to concentrate on you during your time at our Manahawkin chiropractic clinic.


As your Manahawkin chiropractor, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center works to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to maximize quality of life for our low back pain patients. The most recent series of questions to help evaluate patients for these outcomes is called PROMIS that comprises function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The bottom line from all the collected data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but didn’t think they did, (3) did not improve significantly but felt they did, (4) did not 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.
