Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It is a partnership involving the Fernandina Beach 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 amazing! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic take pleasure in their profession most as they are able to decrease pain and build strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients via a thorough treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were noted 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is a highlight of daily practice.

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

Researchers questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They found 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 elder adults, and the addition of one chiropractor added 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers state certain limitations in their study as they pulled a certain group 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 affects 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 higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Fernandina Beach, back pain sufferers get a partner at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic who can help them with in-office care as well as 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 experiencing pain and chronic disorder. When back pain is the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages much of the time anyway and desires suggestions about how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to contain and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. 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) Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic must communicate how each sees back pain management to best reduce the pain!
