YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Lessen Pain, Reduce Opioid Prescription Fills, Improve Quality of Life
Chiropractic care is hands-on treatment appreciated by clients for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is organized for the integration of non-pharmacologic treatment modalities incorporating chiropractic – the Veteran’s Healthcare Administration – usual medical care plus chiropractic care for patients with low back pain was reported as beneficial. There was a significant difference in the outcomes of usual medical care versus usual medical care plus chiropractic care in higher quality of life scoring as well as pain-related disability with chiropractic care. (1) In the Medicare system, older beneficiaries with spinal pain who used chiropractic care were at significantly lower risk – 56% lower – of filling an opioid prescription. (2) Since 2011, a novel role to manage spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was proposed, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Incorporating such care into the healthcare system is aimed to enhance effectiveness and value of care because high costs and poor outcomes are familiar in spine care.

Southern New Hampshire CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: ADD AT-HOME EXERCISE
Blending efforts, be it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is helpful. In suffering with and seeking relief of back pain or neck pain, combining treatment at the office with exercise at home is helpful. The latest report of such a combination stated that four 20-minute sessions of manual therapy and exercise plus an at-home exercise program was more effective than without manual therapy for neck pain sufferers. Their range of motion got better as did their neck disability and pain intensity. (4) Southern New Hampshire back pain and neck pain patients find further benefit when they are active in their care.
