Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain sufferer a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That’s also the goal of your West Des Moines chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership involving the West Des Moines 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 new survey found that chiropractors like yours at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa take pleasure in their profession most as they are able to reduce pain as well as increase strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients through an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were noted as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your West Des Moines chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is the best part 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 added to the number of non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers admit certain limitations in their study as they pulled a specific set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had at least one occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability impacts how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is altered by provider type and whether the provider availability increases or decreases. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with increased spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In West Des Moines, back pain sufferers get a partner at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa who can guide them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is recognizing 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 happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages most of the time anyway and wants suggestions about how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to handle pain (behavioral changes to manage and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take support from clinicians along the lines of education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) West Des Moines back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa must communicate how each views back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
