Coordinated Buffalo, NY Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

So, you desire relief for your back pain to get back to enjoying life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers get that! The Novelli Wellness Center knows this, too, and collaborates with our Buffalo, NY back pain patients and their other healthcare providers to get them back to “normal,” enjoying life again.

REFERRALS TO CHIROPRACTORS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN

A recent study described the referral practices of general practitioners to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics with more than one chiropractor and with diagnostic ultrasound got more referrals. 31% of all new patients - 2.5 referrals per week - in chiropractic practices came via a referral from a general practitioner. Chiropractors who referred more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who shared that they had expertise in geriatric care and had a higher number of new patients each week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the importance of interprofessional communication which your Buffalo, NY chiropractor supports! The Novelli Wellness Center collaborates with local Buffalo, NY healthcare colleagues in all ways to help our shared back and neck pain patients in finding relief and regaining their quality of life.

QUALITY OF LIFE WITH CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION

Quality of life is often an indication of how well we feel, especially as we age. A study of Medicare recipients who used spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was very revealing. Those who got spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT vs 50% for PDT. Those who got spinal manipulation reported their health-related quality of life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85 for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. Regarding the level of concern over the care they were receiving, SMT patients receiving chiropractic care reported a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient getting prescription therapy. (2) Our goal at The Novelli Wellness Center is to decrease our Buffalo, NY back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by doing a thorough examination, explaining well what the condition is as well as the expected care outcomes, and delivering gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
