How many healthcare practitioners
have you sought for your present pain condition it’s back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Quite a few Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic
patients who visit Spinal Care Clinic for the first
time will report that they have visited
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Spinal Care Clinic sees many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain get help from
shared medical appointments focused on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical professionals shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain impacts 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 Burlington and Hamilton healthcare quite enticing!
Spinal Care Clinic 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 as well as their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Particularly, 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 form
of care. (3) Spinal Care Clinic welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Spinal Care Clinic recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients
that will assist them in controlling the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most positively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems continue to embrace chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the demand for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain top the
list of reasons for disability globally.
Chiropractors are trained and deliver non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers say
that enhancing collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will enhance
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care puts to use the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that result
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Spinal Care Clinic and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
