Satterwhite Chiropractic Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain sufferer a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain and not avoid life. That’s also the goal of your Oxford chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership among the Oxford 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 Satterwhite Chiropractic take pleasure in their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain and increase strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients through a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were reported as “being trained to diagnose”the foundation for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Oxford chiropractor concurs! 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 wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the addition of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor added 18.7 conservative care episodes and decreased 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers admit 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 occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which left 402,372 persons in the study. (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 increased spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Oxford, back pain sufferers get a partner at Satterwhite Chiropractic who can guide 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 core 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 patient self-manages most of the time anyway and wants suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to pursue 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 encouragement from clinicians concerning education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Oxford back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic must work on how each sees back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
