Malverne Health & Wellness Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

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

CHIROPRACTIC ENTHUSIASM FOR THE ROLE OF BACK PAIN PROVIDER

Being a chiropractor is amazing! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Malverne Health & Wellness relish their profession most as they are able to reduce pain as well as build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via a comprehensive treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were noted as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and desirable clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Malverne chiropractor agrees! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is the best part of daily practice.

EFFECT OF HEALTHCARE PROVIDER AVAILABILITY: MD/Surgeon, DC, PCP

Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They found that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and decreased 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults. The researchers acknowledge certain limitations in their study as they extracted a certain group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported 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 altered by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with increased spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In Malverne, back pain sufferers get a partner at Malverne Health & Wellness who can guide them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.

EFFECT OF BACK PAIN PATIENT SELF CARE

Medicine is recognizing that the one who is truly at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person experiencing pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain patient self-manages much of the time anyway and needs suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to handle pain (behavioral changes to contain and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take support from clinicians regarding education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Malverne back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness must communicate how each sees back pain management to best help the patient!
