YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Reduce Pain, Decrease Opioid Prescription Fills, Enhance Quality of Life
Chiropractic care is hands-on treatment valued by clients for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is organized for the integration 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 reported as beneficial. There was a significant difference in the outcomes of usual medical care versus 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 utilized chiropractic care were at significantly reduced risk – 56% lower – of filling an opioid prescription. (2) Since 2011, a new role to manage spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was proposed, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Incorporating such care into the healthcare system is intended to enhance effectiveness and value of care as high costs and poor outcomes are familiar in spine care. (3) Your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic understands the spine, the conservative care of its pain, and the value of collaborating with other healthcare practitioners to deliver the pain relief we all want for you! Your Easley chiropractor is your hands-on spine pain practitioner!

Easley CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: ADD AT-HOME EXERCISE
Blending efforts, be it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is important. In looking for relief of back pain or neck pain, combining treatment at the office with exercise at home is beneficial. 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) Easley back pain and neck pain patients report further benefit when they are active in their care.
