CONCORDANCE IS A BIG KEY TO BEST CLINICAL OUTCOMES
Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been shown effective as many randomized clinical trials have been completed. Chiropractic services are established as effective for back and neck pain relief. A recent study reports on the satisfaction of patients who either adhere to the proposed treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients described as “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits during the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time frame or 12 visits in a year) who were also further defined by other demographics were followed. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were said to be “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare bills for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues influenced the discordant patients’ outcomes. (1) Do not allow physical function make you discordant or hold you back from coming to your visits!

ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES
Older adults who do not have such access to chiropractic care are found to more frequently utilize some medical services for spine issues. Medicare data of 39,278 chiropractic care users who moved geographically from an area with more access to chiropractic care to an area which had less access to found that these patients wound up having more visits to primary care physicians for spine issues (a rise of 32.3 visits more a year) and were more likely to have spinal surgery (5.5 more surgeries per year). Financially, this decreased access to chiropractic care for spine issues resulted in higher expense to Medicare: an extra $114,967 per 1,000 beneficiaries on medical services (equaling $391 million nationally).
