Fernandina Beach Back Pain Option: Control It

Control not cure. That is a tough concept to take on when you are in pain. Then again, for many back pain and neck pain patients, any relief is acceptable. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic treats many Fernandina Beach back pain and Fernandina Beach neck pain patients who suffer with chronic pain. Fortunately, spine pain patients who opt for chiropractic care with realistic goals often obtain relief.


When patients visit doctors, they usually seek a “fix”. They want to be “cured” from their ailment be it a cold or a headache or an infection even their back pain or neck pain. Researchers wrote that medicine and healthcare primarily follow the “curative” model of care. For some conditions, management or control of the condition develops into the goal of care. Back and neck pain patients who realize that their condition is theirs for life and that there is a way to control that pain via on-going chiropractic care evolve into appreciative patients. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees them all the time. The healthcare “curative” model may not change any time soon, but the patients’ healthcare options do. Recently, researchers studied back pain patients seeking care from chiropractors. Of 1614 chronic back and neck pain patients, less than a third of them had a goal of a permanent end to their pain. These patients experienced pain for a shorter time and sought a medical cure. The rest of the patients looked for on-going care to avert the pain from coming back, prevent it from getting worse, and get temporary relief of their pain. These patients had lower pain levels for longer periods of time. (1) Patients’ hopes affect their pain relief.


It’s no secret that low back pain is an expensive healthcare challenge considering finances as well as quality of life. Back pain sufferers who have a high expectation of improvement enjoy a 58% greater chance of reporting improvement at the fourth chiropractic appointment. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor knows the importance of our back pain patients’ hopes and expectations. These hopes predict short-term outcomes better than the intensity of the pain, self-rated health status or psychological status. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic describes expectations that will enhance patients’ quality of life.


50% relief is a quality of life improvement! The 50% Rule with The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management puts forth realistic expectations to spine pain sufferers from the beginning. Many Fernandina Beach back pain patients who come to Amelia Chiropractic Clinic and have dealt with their pain for a while are thrilled with the prospect of 10% or 20% or 50% or more. They just want some semblance of their pre-pain life back even if it is walking around the block or making a trip to the grocery store. Cox® Technic seeks 50% relief of pain within a month of care with patient cooperation on visits and at-home recommendations of exercise and/or nutrition. The 50% Rule also assures both the back pain sufferer and the physician that the “next thing” to do if relief is not attained will be arranged.
