YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Reduce Pain, Reduce Opioid Prescription Fills, Enhance Quality of Life
Chiropractic care is hands-on treatment appreciated by many for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is structured for the inclusion of non-pharmacologic treatment modalities including chiropractic – the Veteran’s Healthcare Administration – usual medical care plus chiropractic care for patients with low back pain was found beneficial. There was a significant difference in the outcomes of usual medical care compared with usual medical care plus chiropractic care in higher quality of life scoring as well as pain-related disability with chiropractic care. (1) In the Medicare system, older beneficiaries with spinal pain who used chiropractic care were at significantly reduced risk – 56% lower – of filling an opioid prescription. (2) Since 2011, a novel role to deal with spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was offered, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Incorporating such care into the healthcare system is intended to improve effectiveness and value of care as high costs and poor outcomes are familiar in spine care. (3) Your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic understands the spine, the conservative care of its pain, and the value of working with other healthcare practitioners to deliver the pain relief we all want for you! Your Nashua chiropractor is your hands-on spine pain practitioner!
Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Robert Borzone on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes relieving treatment of back pain with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management that prompted a patient to reduce her consumption of pain medication as she felt less and less pain.
Nashua CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: ADD AT-HOME EXERCISE
Blending efforts, whether it is it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is helpful. In suffering with and seeking relief of back pain or neck pain, combining treatment at the office with exercise at home is helpful. The latest report of such a combination found that four 20-minute sessions of manual therapy and exercise plus an at-home exercise program was more effective than without manual therapy for neck pain sufferers. Their range of motion got better as did their neck disability and pain intensity. (4) Nashua back pain and neck pain patients report further benefit when they are active in their care.
