How many healthcare practitioners
have you sought for your present pain condition [[whether
be it back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Many Lynchburg chiropractic
patients who visit Palmer Chiropractic Center initially will report that they have visited
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or hardly any
relief. Palmer Chiropractic Center talks with many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain benefit from
shared medical consultations centered on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The contributing integrative
and lifestyle medical professionals shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the causes of pain, and how
pain impacts lifestyle choices. Recommended
care methods included chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without more use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of services in Lynchburg healthcare quite enticing!
Palmer Chiropractic Center is ready!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
approaches – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. More
than a third of patients are self-referred for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients listed
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Palmer Chiropractic Center recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Lynchburg back pain patients
that will assist them in controlling the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most positively help patients seeking
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in including chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the demand for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain continue to lead the
list of causes of disability globally.
Chiropractors are experienced and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers write
that improving collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care exercises the best evidence
from research to make clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Palmer Chiropractic Center and its use
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
