Young Chiropractic welcomes back pain and neck pain sufferers to describe their pain symptoms openly to foster a pain relieving treatment plan to which they can they can agree.
CONCORDANCE IS A BIG KEY TO BEST CLINICAL OUTCOMES
Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been shown effective as many randomized clinical trials have been completed. Chiropractic services are accepted as effective for neck pain and back pain relief. A new study reports on the satisfaction of patients who either adhere to the suggested treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients were said to be “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits throughout the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time period or 12 visits in a year) and their characteristics were documented. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were said to be “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare bills for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues played a role among other items for these patients. (1) Do not allow physical function make you discordant or hold you back from coming to your appointments!

ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES
Older adults who do not have such access to chiropractic care are found to more frequently utilize some medical services for spine conditions. Medicare data of 39,278 chiropractic care users who moved geographically from an area with more access to chiropractic care to an area which had less access to revealed that these patients wound up having more visits to primary care physicians for spine issues (an increase of 32.3 visits more annually) and were more likely to get spinal surgery (5.5 more surgeries per annum). Financially, this decreased access to chiropractic care for spine issues resulted in higher expense to Medicare: an extra $114,967 per 1,000 beneficiaries on medical services (amounting to $391 million nationally).

YOU AND YOUR INPUT MATTER
