So, you desire back pain relief to get back to enjoying life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers get that! Young Chiropractic is well aware of this, too, and works closely with our Easley back pain patients and their other healthcare providers to return to “normal,” delighting in life again.
REFERRALS TO CHIROPRACTORS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN
A new 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 all new patients - 2.5 referrals a week - in chiropractic practices came via general practitioner referral. Chiropractors who sent more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who reported expertise in geriatric care and had a higher number of new patients each week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the significance of interprofessional interaction which your Easley chiropractor supports! Young Chiropractic works with local Easley healthcare colleagues in all ways to benefit our shared back and neck pain patients in getting relief and regaining their quality of life.
QUALITY OF LIFE WITH CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION
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 quite 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 received spinal manipulation documented their health-related quality of life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85 for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. Regarding the level of concern over the care they were receiving, SMT patients receiving chiropractic care reported a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient receiving prescription therapy. (2) The goal of care at Young Chiropractic is to lower our Easley back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by doing a thorough examination, explaining clearly what the condition is and its expected care outcomes, and performing gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
