Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Severna Park Back Pain Relief

Stats. Stats. Stats. We humans are well scrutinized: our illnesses, our habits, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be beneficial to improve care, particularly path for low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when required. In Severna Park Back And Neck Care Center is experienced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if necessary.


The global leading cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosis of the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. One study stated that low back examination tests alone aren’t always helpful on their own. (1) That is  why Back And Neck Care Center considers everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to establish a diagnosis and a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers have to go to specialists like spine surgeons. Even the surgeons value it when patients who require their expertise (surgical skills) are sent to them. One recent study highlighted that of 500 cases sent to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals done during the study’s timeframe were considered inappropriate. The researchers concluded that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Back And Neck Care Center agrees and is ready to perform that role. Your Severna Park chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis and management of low back pain and is well aware of when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic corner of healthcare, Care Response is a filled database of details from chiropractic patients around the world. It has been gathering data for over 10 years regarding patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients felt was good about their care and what could be improved. The good incorporated clinical outcomes (reduced pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and explanation of the condition and its treatment, professionalism, friendliness, feeling valued as a person, safety, comfort, and punctuality. There is always room for improvement, and patients shared that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted satisfactory outcomes, etc. (3) Back And Neck Care Center strives to focus on you during your time at our Severna Park chiropractic clinic.


As your Severna Park chiropractor, Back And Neck Care Center works to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to increase quality of life for our low back pain patients. The most recent series of questions to help evaluate patients for these outcomes is known as PROMIS that encompasses function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The bottom line from all the collected data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but didn’t think they did, (3) did not improve significantly but felt they did, (4) did not improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome described above, and we want you to tell us how you feel you are.
