Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

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


Being a chiropractor is amazing! A new survey reported that chiropractors like yours at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries take pleasure in their profession most because they are capable to reduce pain and increase strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients via a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were reported as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Manchester chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - especially in managing spine pain issues is the best part of daily practice.


Researchers questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They found that one new spine surgeon added to the number of non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician decreased 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 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 certain set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had at least one occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability influences how much is expended on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Manchester, back pain sufferers get a partner at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries who can guide them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.


Medicine is recognizing that the one who is truly at the core of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person dealing 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 desires suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to request more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to manage and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take guidance from clinicians regarding education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Manchester back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries must work on how each views back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
