Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Nashua Back Pain Relief

February 08, 2024

Stats. Stats. Stats. We human-beings are well analyzed: our diseases, our habits, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be beneficial to improve care, particularly flow of low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when required. In Nashua Moriarty Chiropractic is practiced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if necessary.


The worldwide leading cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosing the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. A new study stated that low back examination tests alone are not always useful when considered alone. (1) That is  the reason that Moriarty Chiropractic considers everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to establish a diagnosis as well as a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers need to visit specialists like spine surgeons. Even the surgeons value it when patients who need their expertise (surgical skills) are sent to them. A recent study pointed out that of 500 cases sent to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals made during the study’s time period were deemed not appropriate. The researchers concluded that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Moriarty Chiropractic concurs and is prepared to fill that role. Your Nashua chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis and management of low back pain and is well aware of when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic corner of healthcare, Care Response is a packed database of info from chiropractic patients around the world. It has been amassing data for over 10 years about patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients thought was good about their care and what could be improved. The good incorporated clinical outcomes (less pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and explanation of the condition and its treatment, professionalism, friendliness, feeling valued as a person, safety, comfort, and punctuality. There is always room for improvement, and patients commented that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted satisfactory outcomes, etc. (3) Moriarty Chiropractic tries hard to concentrate on you during your time at our Nashua chiropractic clinic.


As your Nashua chiropractor, Moriarty Chiropractic strives to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to enhance quality of life for our low back pain patients. The latest series of questions to assist us in evaluating patients for these outcomes is known as PROMIS that encompasses function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The final word from all the collected data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but didn’t think they did, (3) did not improve significantly but felt they did, (4) didn’t improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome explained above, and we want to know how you feel you are.
