INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain get help from
shared medical appointments centered on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The contributing integrative
and lifestyle medical pros common education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the causes of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Suggested
care methods incorporated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without more use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes make such integration of care
options in West Des Moines healthcare quite inviting!
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
approaches – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. Over a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients described
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common type
of care. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily routines of West Des Moines back pain patients
that will help them control the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most effectively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in adopting chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the call for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain top the
list of causes of disability around the world.
Chiropractors are trained and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers note
that improving collaboration between chiropractic and
medical physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care puts to use the best evidence
from research to make clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That is what Executive Chiropractic of Iowa and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
