Coordinated Severna Park Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

So, you want relief for your back pain to return and enjoy life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers can relate to that! Back And Neck Care Center is well aware of this, too, and collaborates with our Severna Park back pain patients and their other healthcare providers to get them back to “normal,” delighting in life again.


A recent study described the referral practices of general practitioners to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one chiropractor and also offer diagnostic ultrasound got more referrals. 31% of all new patients - 2.5 referrals a week - in chiropractic practices came via a referral from a general practitioner. Chiropractors who referred more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who reported expertise in geriatric care and had more new patients each week got more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the importance of interprofessional interaction which your Severna Park chiropractor embraces! Back And Neck Care Center collaborates with local Severna Park healthcare colleagues whenever possible to help our shared back and neck pain patients in finding relief and reclaiming their quality of life.


Quality of life is often an indication of how well we feel, especially as we age. A study of Medicare recipients who used spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was quite enlightening. Those who received spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT vs 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 stated a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient getting prescription therapy. (2) Our goal at Back And Neck Care Center is to lower our Severna Park back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by doing a thorough examination, explaining clearly what the condition is along with its expected care outcomes, and delivering gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
