Back And Neck Care Center Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to give the back pain sufferer a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That is also the goal of your Severna Park chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership among the Severna Park back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).


Being a chiropractor is the best! A new survey found that chiropractors like yours at Back And Neck Care Center relish their profession most because they are able to decrease pain and build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via a thorough treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were marked as “being trained to diagnose”the foundation for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Severna Park chiropractor agrees! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is a highlight of daily practice.


Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor added 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults. The researchers acknowledge certain limitations in their study as they extracted a specific group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability impacts how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is altered by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with more spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In Severna Park, back pain sufferers get a partner at Back And Neck Care Center who can guide them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.


Medicine is recognizing that the one who is really at the core of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person suffering with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain is the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages much of the time anyway and wants suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to pursue more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to contain and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take guidance from clinicians concerning education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Severna Park back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center need to communicate how each views back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
