How many health professionals
have you visited for your current pain condition whether
it is back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Quite a few Baton Rouge chiropractic
patients who visit Spine & Sports Rehab Center for the first
time will report that they have visited
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain benefit from
shared medical appointments 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 integrated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients had less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of services in Baton Rouge healthcare quite inviting!
Spine & Sports Rehab Center is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
methods – 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. Over a third of patients are self-referred for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients reported
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Baton Rouge back pain patients
that will help them control the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most effectively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems continue to embrace 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 top the
list of reasons for disability globally.
Chiropractors are experienced and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers write
that enhancing collaboration between chiropractic and
medical 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 utilizes the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That is what Spine & Sports Rehab Center and its use
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
