How many doctors
have you visited for your current pain condition [[whether
be it back, neck, leg or arm pain? Quite a few Williamson chiropractic
patients coming to Apple Country Chiropractic initially will report that they have consulted with
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Apple Country Chiropractic sees many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain benefit from
shared medical consultations centered on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical pros common education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Recommended
care methods included chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of care
options in Williamson healthcare quite inviting!
Apple Country Chiropractic is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
options – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Particularly, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. More
than a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients listed
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Apple Country Chiropractic recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Williamson back pain patients
that will help them control the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most positively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems continue to embrace chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the call for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain continue to lead the
list of causes of disability around the world.
Chiropractors are experienced and deliver non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers note
that improving collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care exercises the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Apple Country Chiropractic and its use
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
