Williamson Chiropractic Care Works for Those Who Have Access and Use It

Access and concordance. Agreement with the plan and access to the plan. These are the keys to favorable outcomes with chiropractic care. In Williamson, access to chiropractic is easy. Apple Country Chiropractic welcomes back pain and neck pain patients to describe their pain symptoms honestly to develop a pain relieving treatment plan to which they can they can agree.

CONCORDANCE IS A BIG KEY TO BEST CLINICAL OUTCOMES

Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been proven effective via many randomized controlled trials. Chiropractic services are established as effective for neck pain and back pain relief. A recent study reports on the satisfaction of patients who either adhere to the proposed treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients were said to be “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits throughout the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time frame or 12 visits in a year) and their characteristics were documented. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were said to be “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare costs for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues influenced the discordant patients’ outcomes. (1) Don’t let physical function make you discordant or hold you back from making your appointments! Don’t skip your appointments. Apple Country Chiropractic knows the treatment plan with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management that is most effective for your condition. Talk with us about your concerns with it. We will work together for your Williamson back pain and neck pain relief.

ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES

Older adults who do not have such access to chiropractic care are seen to more frequently use some medical services for spine issues. Medicare data of 39,278 chiropractic care users who moved geographically from an area which had more access to chiropractic care to an area which had less access to revealed that these patients wound up having more visits to primary care physicians for spine issues (an increase of 32.3 visits more annually) and were more likely to undergo spinal surgery (5.5 more surgeries per annum). Financially, this decreased access to chiropractic care for spine issues resulted in higher expense to Medicare: an extra $114,967 per 1,000 beneficiaries on medical services (amounting to $391 million nationally). (2) Apple Country Chiropractic is open here in Williamson to relieve pain and save money on spine pain relief services.

YOU AND YOUR INPUT MATTER

Sharing everything about your back pain experience with your Williamson chiropractor is important to your pain-relieving treatment plan. An Australian study of chiropractors found that chiropractors use patient documented outcome measures (PROMs) to guide the treatment plan and determine the treatment response of lumbar spine pain patients.
