Coordinated Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

April 05, 2022

So, you want relief for your back pain to return and enjoy life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers get that! New Hampshire Spine and Sport is well aware of this, too, and collaborates with our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients and their other healthcare professionals to return to “normal,” delighting in life again.


A new study noted how general practitioners refer to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one chiropractor and with diagnostic ultrasound received more referrals. 31% of the new patients - 2.5 referrals per week - in chiropractic practices came via general practitioner referral. Chiropractors who sent more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who reported expertise in geriatric care and had a higher number of new patients a week got more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the significance of interprofessional interaction which your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor supports! New Hampshire Spine and Sport collaborates with local Southern New Hampshire healthcare colleagues in all ways to benefit our shared back and neck pain patients in getting relief and reclaiming their quality of life.


Quality of life is often a reflection of how well we feel, especially as we get older. A study of Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was quite enlightening. Those who received spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT versus 50% for PDT. Those who received spinal manipulation documented their health-related quality of life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85 for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. As for the concern they felt receiving each type of therapy, SMT patients receiving chiropractic care stated a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient receiving prescription therapy. (2) Our goal at New Hampshire Spine and Sport is to decrease our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by doing a thorough examination, describing clearly what the condition is and its expected care outcomes, and performing gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
