The Baton Rouge chiropractic patients have expectations of their care. Those are valuable to share!


Chiropractic patients have pretty clear expectations of their chiropractic spinal care provider – a full examination, a distinct diagnosis of the source of pain, detailed information and guidance on how to cope with it, and pain relief – one who listens intently, verifies the realness of their pain, and includes them in the treatment plan. (1) Sound right? We bet it does! Our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients want the same from our treatment at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers! Athletes and “geri-active” patients mix it up a bit. ATHLETES: Athletes presumed musculoskeletal assessment and treatment at and beyond the site of injury, symptom improvement, effective communication, and expertise from their chiropractor as well as reassurance, positive impact on their athletic performance, and injury prevention advice. (2) "GERI-ACTIVEs": Older back pain sufferers want much the same, too: know the healthcare system to guide them through it as necessary (important!), communicate clearly, develop an interpersonal relationship, have a passion for patient care (as well as comforting patience with the patient!), and possess clinical and diagnostic skill. They also shared the value of interdisciplinary collaboration and their preference for hands-on treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. (3) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients want their chiropractors to be healthcare team partners, clear communicators of realistic expectations, amazing hands-on musculoskeletal treatment providers, and terrific listeners! Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is all that…and more!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Nate McKee on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he meets patient expectations by clearly explaining the issue – spinal stenosis and balance – and its treatment plan via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which includes patient education, spinal manipulation, nutrition, and exercise.

Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers presents support for core stabilization exercises at any age in the management and prevention of back pain.  

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Core Stabilization Exercise

Exercise isn’t just for the athlete! Back pain sufferers gain from core stabilization to decrease chronic low back pain. A study of fighter pilots showed significantly less chronic low back pain and less experience of neck pain following core stabilization exercise. (4) Older folks benefit, too, as those who suffer with low back pain often experience poor postural control which leads to poor balance and a higher risk of falls. Core stability training in older women improved many outcome scores for them: VAS visual analog scale of pain level, Oswestry disability, timed-up-and-go test, 10-minute walking, and four-square step test. (5) Athlete or non-athlete, young or old, exercise works! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is here to talk with you about what would work for you.
