Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Fernandina Beach Back Pain Relief

Data. Data. Data. We humans are well researched: our diseases, our behaviors, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be quite helpful in improving care, particularly flow of low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when needed. In Fernandina Beach Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is practiced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if necessary.


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. One study commented that low back examination tests alone are not always useful when considered alone. (1) That is  the reason that Amelia Chiropractic Clinic considers everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to establish a diagnosis as well as a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers need to visit specialists like spine surgeons. Even the surgeons value it when patients who need their expertise (surgical skills) are referred to them. A recent study pointed out that of 500 cases sent to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals made during the study’s timeframe were thought to be not appropriate. The researchers concluded that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic concurs and is ready to fill that role. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis and management of low back pain and knows when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic world of healthcare, Care Response is a packed database of details from chiropractic patients around the world. It’s been gathering data for over 10 years about 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 comprised clinical outcomes (decreased pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and description 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 reported that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted satisfactory outcomes, etc. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic strives to concentrate on you during your time at our Fernandina Beach chiropractic office.


As your Fernandina Beach chiropractor, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic strives to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to maximize quality of life for our low back pain patients. The latest series of questions to help evaluate patients for these outcomes is known as PROMIS that comprises function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The final word 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) didn’t improve significantly but felt they did, (4) did not improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome explained above, and we want to know how you feel you are.
