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 professionals shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the causes of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Recommended
care methods included chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients had less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes make such integration of services in Buffalo, NY healthcare quite enticing!
Disc Centers Of America is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
methods – self-care - for pain management as well as their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. Over a third of patients are self-referred 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) Disc Centers Of America welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Disc Centers Of America recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily routines of Buffalo, NY 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 effectively 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 demand for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain continue to lead the
list of reasons for disability around the world.
Chiropractors are trained and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers write
that enhancing 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 make clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Disc Centers Of America and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
