Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care Works for Those Who Have Access and Use It

November 17, 2021

Access and concordance. Agreement with the plan and access to the plan. These are the keys to favorable outcomes with chiropractic care. In Baton Rouge, access to chiropractic is straightforward. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers welcomes back pain and neck pain sufferers to describe their pain symptoms openly to foster a pain relieving treatment plan which they will follow.


Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been shown efficacious via many randomized controlled trials. Chiropractic services are accepted as effective for back and neck pain relief. A recent study reports on the satisfaction of patients who either adhere to the recommended treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients were said to be “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits throughout the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time period or 12 visits in a year) and their characteristics were documented. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were considered “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare costs for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues played a role among other items for these patients. (1) Don’t let physical function make you discordant or hold you back from making your appointments! Make your visits. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers knows the treatment plan with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management that is most effective for your condition. Talk with us about your concerns with it. We will work together for your Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain relief. In Baton Rouge, you have easy access to quality chiropractic care at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers.


Older adults who do not have such access to chiropractic care are known to more frequently utilize some medical services for spine issues. Medicare data of 39,278 chiropractic care recipients who moved geographically from an area which had more access to chiropractic care to an area which had less access to found that these patients wound up experiencing more visits to primary care physicians for spine issues (an increase of 32.3 visits more annually) and were more likely to undergo spinal surgery (5.5 more surgeries per year). Financially, this decreased access to chiropractic care for spine issues resulted in more expense to Medicare: an extra $114,967 per 1,000 beneficiaries on medical services (amounting to $391 million nationally). (2) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is open here in Baton Rouge to relieve pain and save money on spine pain relief services.


What you share with your Baton Rouge chiropractor is crucial to your pain-relieving treatment plan. An Australian study of chiropractors found that chiropractors use patient documented outcome measures (PROMs) to guide the treatment plan and determine the treatment response of lumbar spine pain patients.
