WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? It matters!
Chiropractic patients have pretty clear expectations of their chiropractic spinal care provider – a thorough exam, a distinct diagnosis of the cause of pain, detailed information and instructions on how to deal with it, and pain relief – one who listens well, confirms the realness of their pain, and involves them in the treatment plan. (1) Sound right? We expect it does! Our Nashua chiropractic patients hope for the same from our treatment at Moriarty Chiropractic! Athletes and “geri-active” patients mix it up a little. ATHLETES: Athletes presumed musculoskeletal assessment and treatment at and beyond the site of injury, improvement of symptoms, effective communication, and expertise from their chiropractor in addition to reassurance, advantageous impact on their athletic performance, and injury prevention advice. (2) "GERI-ACTIVEs": Older back pain sufferers want much the same, too: know the healthcare system to guide them through it as necessary (important!), convey important information clearly, develop an interpersonal relationship, have a passion for patient care (as well as comforting patience with the patient!), and have clinical and diagnostic skill. They also expressed the value of interdisciplinary collaboration and their preference for hands-on treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. (3) Nashua chiropractic patients desire their chiropractors to be healthcare team players, clear communicators of realistic expectations, amazing hands-on musculoskeletal treatment providers, and great listeners! Your Nashua chiropractor is all that…and then some!
Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Nate McKee on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he meets patient expectations by clearly defining the issue – spinal stenosis and balance – and its treatment plan via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates patient education, spinal manipulation, nutrition, and exercise.
Nashua CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Core Stabilization Exercise
Exercise isn’t just for the athlete! Back pain sufferers benefit from core stabilization to decrease chronic low back pain. A study of fighter pilots resulted in significantly less chronic low back pain and less incidence of neck pain after core stabilization exercise. (4) Older folks benefit, too, as those who suffer with low back pain often deal with poor postural control which contributes to poor balance and a higher risk of falls. Core stability training in older women boosted many outcome scores for them: VAS visual analog scale of pain level, Oswestry disability, timed-up-and-go test, 10-minute walking, and four-square step test. (5) Athlete or not, young or old, exercise works! Moriarty Chiropractic is here to talk with you about what would work for you.
