Coordinated Nashua Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

April 05, 2022

So, you want back pain relief to get back to enjoying life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers can relate to that! Moriarty Chiropractic is well aware of this, too, and collaborates with our Nashua back pain patients and their other healthcare providers to get them back to “normal,” enjoying life again.


A recent study noted how general practitioners refer to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one chiropractor and also offer diagnostic ultrasound received more referrals. 31% of the new patients - 2.5 referrals per week - in chiropractic practices came via a referral from a general practitioner. Chiropractors who sent more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who shared that they had expertise in geriatric care and had more new patients per week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the importance of interprofessional communication which your Nashua chiropractor embraces! Moriarty Chiropractic works with local Nashua healthcare colleagues in all ways to benefit our mutual back and neck pain patients in getting relief and reclaiming their quality of life.


Quality of life is often a reflection of how well we feel, especially as we age. A study of Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was very enlightening. Those who got spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT versus 50% for PDT. Those who got spinal manipulation reported their health-related quality of life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85 for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. As for the concern they felt receiving each type of therapy, SMT patients receiving chiropractic care stated a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient getting prescription therapy. (2) Our goal at Moriarty Chiropractic is to lower our Nashua back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by performing a thorough examination, describing well what the condition is along with its expected care outcomes, and performing gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
