Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been shown effective via many randomized controlled trials. Chiropractic services are accepted as effective for back and neck pain relief. A new study reports on the satisfaction of patients who either follow the suggested treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients described as “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits during the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time frame or 12 visits in a year) who were also further defined by other demographics were followed. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were said to be “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare bills for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues influenced the discordant patients’ outcomes. (1) Don’t let physical function make you discordant or hold you back from making your appointments!
